Jeff Gordon's Winston Jurassic Park Monte Carlo

This is the car that 1995 WC Champ Jeff Gordon drove in the 1997 Winston All-Star race at Charlotte Motor Speedway on May 17 of last year. It was decked out with a special "Jurassic Park the Ride" paint scheme.

The kit is a 1997 Monogram Monte Carlo and the decals are from the kit. I had to get a slixx contingency decal sheet because the kit contingency decals were neither accurate nor complete! Also the ones I used weren't totally right either but they are a lot closer than the kit decals and besides I had to make them fit in front of the 24's which were too far forward!

Painting and Decals:

The chassis and body interior are standard light grey (2 parts white and 1 part grey). The exterior of the body is red. I airbrushed the body red and when dry I masked the skirts and painted them flat black. I then applied the decals to the body. I first applied the large #24 to the roof and the Dupont logo on the trunk. Next come the rear quarter panel decals.

The decals for the door areas go on next these overlap the rear quarter panel decals and include the #24's. Next I applied the little Jeff Gordon decals over the windows and the pillar decals. Then the headlight, grill, Monte Carlo and Little #24 decals on the nose. Then I applied the contingency decals and the Quaker State DUPONT and little #24 decal (once again 1 piece) to the rear of the body! Lastly I applied the hood decal which again as with the #5 Kellogg's model was a bit of work! Once again I had to get all the air bubbles out and make it lay down in the grooves on each side of the hood! This decal only slightly touched 2 of the hood pins so I didn't have to do any cutting to get it to lay down! Once the decals were dry I applied a final coat of high gloss enamel, let it dry and painted and installed the windshield and misc. clear parts. I then applied the tire decals and painted the center caps and hood pins! All that was left was installing the body on the chassis and I was done!
