It turned out fine Rick!
The gold leaf I have is "variegated" anyway and yours looks more realistic. 
I only bought the leaf I use because thats the stuff Sundance used on his bodies so....

Very nice car and a proud addition to the stable.
:good:

Thank you sir, but you are talented enough for anything...speaking of which. How about another proxy race?

Thanks Jairus. I've seen the current proxy thread and I think this old school builder will pass and let you guys carry on.
