There comes a time where it's just best to waive the white flag and call one done.

The car body is a JNJ resin with an early 90's Monogram Pontiac as the donor for the rest.  The paint is Dupli - Color Linen White.  The blue is Wal Mart's brand of Royal Blue enamel.  The red on the nose of the car is I believe Rustoleum Apple Red.  The car took a dip is Castrol Super Clean four times for various paint problems with the last three due to problems matching the red on the nose with the decals.  I thought I had the red figured out with the spoon tests, but when the paint on the nose met with the decal on the hood, it was a no go.  The decals are Powerslide.  They went on fine, but it perplexes me as to why they did not make a decal for the nose of the car.  If I remember correctly, the proprietor said it was too difficult to make a decal to fit the nose, except that's what I did.  I lowered the ride height and used Bare Metal Foil for the spoiler.

So anyway, without further adieu, here are a few pictures.  Thanks for looking.
