I found a pic of the Lancer Porsche Carrera 6 from Electric Dreams:

Fellas,

 

 Thanks for all of the input, I'll have to keep an eye out for some of the stuff in the pics...

 

Well the Porsche is DONE !  The new decals proved to be much better than the first batch, however, my fingers are not as nimble as they once might have been. As a result several decals didn't make the trip to THE RACE PLACE last night!

 

The car ran well, but was hampered by my unfamiliarity of adjusting the gear by sliding the motor forward or back using the screw on the bottom of the chassis. Not wishing to destroy the hard to find RUSSKIT rear wheel/gear combo, I opted to park the car and do the adjustment in the shop.

 Also the rear tires were making contact with the bottom of the interior panel, again, the problem will be addressed. What seems apparent is that the body has curled somewhat over the decades and has "tucked tail" so to speak and is causing the situation.

Some  RUSSKIT Porsche pics...

Joe,

 

 Somehow the decals wouldn't stay put. I goofed something up, maybe I left them in the water too long  ?  :dash2:  The upper photo shows the decals in place, the bottom one shows the decals are no longer there...like magic !

Yup. I even wipe the area on the body where the decal is to be placed with a rag soaked with it.

After you set the decal dont touch it for 24 hours even if it looks wrinkly.

I'm not sure of the name I picked it up years ago at a hobby shop. It sure does go a long way.

Joe,

 

 Does it have a brush that's part of the cap ? If so, it's called SOLVASET.

I only use the red for really problem decals that I can't get to conform to the surface.

I'm going to agree with Mig. A little goes a long way. My bottle ( glass! ) is over 30 years old and it's still half full !

 

At that rate I'll be about 86 when she's all used up  :laugh2:

My home track was an AMT Turnpike set, my first commercial slot car was a Russkit Porsche Carrera. Chassis pieces & tires are still at my parent's former house. Some day, I'll have to make that a restoration project too. :)
