Sweeeeet!!!! Looks like Salvinos nailed it. Saw a built Petty car up close. Looked great also.

Yes from the old parts box. I did grind the back off to open up the holes.

don't know if this as been mentioned before, but the rear window is wrong. real car, at the corner where it sweeps down is curved, and not almost a 90* like the kit has , and the window notch above the trunk is not there,

the stock back glass doesnt appear as bulbous as the one on the model. I dont think i ever saw one of those on the street. Talk about rare.

That's interesting. I thought by then they'd all gone over to plexi or some form of that? Either way, comparing a street car to a Stock Car is an unfair comparison. I do agree the sides should have been a bit more rounded. If you mean the line at the front where the filler goes for the original deck lid space, that would have been filled by most teams just like door seams.

I had the honor of seeing one of those at a car show once. Very different.
