Pablo....just for future tire bubbles you had....go to Walmart or Michaels and get a tube of Black E-6000 adhesive....works great for MANY things, I use the clear e-6000 to apply my wings on Can-Am.... no stapes and they never will come of, it also flattens out as paint does when setting so you do not have streaks....it can also be used in wheel wells that have split, just put some on finger rubb onto split on inside of body and let dry....split gone.....beautiful work as always.

Thanks guys.

Kim, I highly doubt I will ever use toy tires with craters in them again :)

Ortmanns aren't toy tires, people actually race with them. If you ever need to use urethanes again, consider those made by Paul Gage in Canada. I checked the four pare I have & none of them have blemishes or air pocket craters. If you're building another similar Indy model, something else to consider is that most Indy cars have their tubs offset to the left.
