I guess this almost going to be a out of box build, using the kit decals for this one, I redid the fuel lines, kind of ish removed the one molded in, and replaced it with the correct two ( fuel line/return line) I also added the wedge adjustment bolts and track bar adjustment bolt, I used .88MM rod, thinking I need to go down one more size. Also replaced the kit seat with one from previous NASCAR glue kits, and added one of the missing roll bars.




Added some wiring to the engine, again, I think I need to go down one size, used the new tubing from Tamiya and still waiting on the two smaller sizes, used .80. Pretty much used a bunch of different Metalizer paints on the engine.

Looking good
Can't wait to see how the kit decals work for you.
I will be keeping an eye on this build.

Moving forward, removed the oversized wiring, almost embarrassed that I even posted a photo of it.

Typical Revell kit though, needed work on the ride hight, after some work, got the ride height to a more realistic height. I drilled out the center of the wheel back, glued it to the brake's and then mounted it , side stepping the metal pins.

Body is painted, but I sort of somehow forgot to mask off an area on both sides, after removing the black, and some of the white, I need to tend to that before I can proceed. I used from the can Tamiya white and black.

Was wondering how the kit decals worked out, saw you had them done, but I don't belong to that forum so I could not ask you there.
Thanks

Dal's, they are on, not bad for kit decals, used the hoodpin sheet from Mike's and the Busch and Goodyear decals are my supplement sheet I printed out.

The decals are really nice for kit decals, I think the numbers and the contingency decals are just a tad under sized, but they react very well to setting solution, In my opinion, they are worth using, and no one should be disappointed with them outside of the missing Goodyear/Busch decals.

Yes. There's a driver figure, not the same molding as the ones from the earlier glue kits, but there is one.

not an easy one to paint for sure. yours looks good.
I don't like the cover that goes over the disk brakes so I cut it out and did some modifications
