Sweet! Great color and wheel choice. Nice to have a connection to the 1:1, too. Thumbs Up

Does anyone make kit or decals for the original '69 Hurst Olds?  That would be the white and gold version .

Nice looking Olds, Mike! Color is perfect and more pics would be great! Nice work! CoolThumbs Up

Big Gary, Keith Marks has decals for the 69 Hurst Olds. You can contact him at mofobow@hotmail.com His decals are very good but a set will be about $16 with shipping. Contact him for a price and then send an paypal payment if you want to buy.

If you cannot have a good time, what kinda time can you have? JR

Next on the bench:  Another 1970 Hemi 'Cuda, 1958 Chevy Impala, 1987 Buick GNX, 1950 Chevy Pick-up, Indy Reynard, 1965 Corvette, probably not in this order.

So, I decided to have a go at the pics on a white background. I think the pic in natural sun light is better, but it's winter here and overcast so, here they are. Wanted to try and show the vinyl top I created, as original model was bare top. Hope you enjoy.

So, now that I have taken these photos, I see what a crappy job I did painting the chrome window trim. I'm thinking I might try the foil that I see some folks have used on their models. Can any of you tell me if this can be done relatively easy with the windows in place? I'm sure if I try to touch up with paint, I'll just make it worse.

It would be far easier to take the windows out to foil the trim and you will not damage the windows this way.

Seems difficult to do, with the body glued to the chassis. Maybe I'll just leave well enough alone.
