The horror stories I've read on the Internet always seem to end with nothing accomplished dealing with the USPS. Either they can't get in touch with anyone and even if they do the problem just fades a ...

Wonder what prompted Mike's Decals to make an early Jeff Gordon decal? I'm gonna get one just for something different.

The wheel looks good but as mentioned the white letters could use a wash. I've never been able to perfect that so not gonna give advice.

The sprint cars you want to get are Monogram models. I've built them and they're the old original kits with decals that aren't that good. I think I got some aftermarket ones for the Big Tree Stand one ...
