1983 White Pepsi Challenger Darrell Waltrip


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

Here is a build I finished a couple months ago and have neglected to post. This is DW's Pepsi Challenger Monte Carlo from 1983. This is as it ran in the Winston 500 at Talladega. It was the only race the Pepsi Challenger was all-white instead of the usual white and yellow. 

I made a couple modifications to the brilliant Monogram kit. I modified the suspension by drilling through the rear shock mounts and allowing scratch-built springs to run through them. That lets the car sit lower and naturally level. I also filled in the door jams. This was my first attempt with Bare Metal Foil. It was a learning experience and I'll look to get better  at that.

The paint is Tamiya lacquers. I used Mike's Decals, and as always they were great.
