Decal ID please.

 

I searched and searched but couldn't come up with anything on these Thomas Chevrolet/Sid's Auto Parts decals.

 

I'm going to do a "Impala Saved' on this very cool Chevy drag car.

A wonderful gift from Don S.. Thanks Don!!!

This is a Mercedes that I bought and detailed back in 1990.

It's a Parma factory 3 color paint job and I added a Noose interior to it today.

It looks like it was cut at the factory with a hot knife.

I will post the back story behind this RTR car.

So, to take the title of this post literally, G-Bob and I have teamed up for a build that will end up in the next Proxy drag race. You might say Im the sponsor and backer and supplier of parts and He is the builder/ crafter.  The idea was to try and recreate a car I had back in my early days (mid 60s). A Kemtron powered, Dynamic chassis and BIG Dynamic slicks GS Vette. With parts gathered G-Bob went to building. Here is his lists of parts followed with some photos !

 

 What it is:

 

1.Dynamic - chassis, body mount and rolling stock
2.Lancer - Corvette GS body - donated by Don S. 
3.Kemtron - 503x Wasp 6 volt
4.K&B - 14t 48p pinion
5.Speed torque - 50t 48p 'Super-Lite" aluminum spur gear

 

I didn't do any fine detail work to things like the oil cooler, tail lights, side vents, grill, side pipes...etc just to keep the look of a Hot Wheels car or a 60s out of the box RTR.

Bob, first your paint jobs are awesome, thanks for sharing. I love the under the body numbers, can you share how to do that? I'd love to give that a try.

Thanks again for sharing your pictures!

FS,

IIRC, Pablo did a detailed play by play on doing decals on the inside here on slotblog.

 

How I've done it if spraying.

  1. Wash body
  2. skuff with 000 wool
  3. apply Testors decal set
  4. Apply decal
  5. more decal set
  6. wait
  7. wait
  8. more wait
  9. very light coat
  10. again
  11. again
  12. Oooo Nice :)

Thanks Dom,

So far a braid sparking 1.44 pass was the best without the wheelie bars on.
