Looks great.

Ertl made that car in one of the GTO turquoises. It may have been the light color. A few years ago the 1/18 emblems decals would have been a hot seller. I could use some correct Z-28 emblems.

When I tried that several years ago, they looked good on paper but were kind of transparent and didn't show up on a black surface. Fred Caddy made the decals for the 1/18 Camaro but the ones for the front apron and the trunk were incorrect.

Thanks

Thanks Neal. I have used the white paper before but the Camaro script needs to show the body color under it.
