Darell Waltrip Tide Monte-Carlo Aerocoupe update 08/07

Hi!

Here is my latest Nascar project, it's the Monogram kit of course with Powerslide decals in the works!!

First it's been painted with automitive basecoat white and orange, followed by fluorescent orange from Auto Air.

I the shot a coat of PPG urethane clear and once dried i sanded it off with 2000 grit wet sandpaper.

I then applied the white underdecals and shot another urethane clear to even the white decals with the paint, once dry, i will buff the clear and i will paintnthe yellow stripe on the rear quarter panel and will compltete the decals.

Nice start! I always liked 'Jaws'. One day I want to do his Gatorade Laguna.

My favorite color is clear. I am also ambidexterous, I can screw up equally well with either hand. I am 53 years old and been building for most of that time. :)

Here's a quick update on my Chevy!

last posted update, i covered the white underdecals (large tide on hood and numbers in doors and top), with clearcoat to smooth the finish.  

After the clear dried, i polished with detail master kit, to get everything smooth.

I then began applying the finishing decal, on the hood.. 

Next step i will do the yellow stripe on the quarter panel, in paint!!

See ya!

I've always had a secret liking with the Monte Carlo / GNX shape but I've never seen the areo back screen before ( Being British I guess ! ) I'm glad UK race cars aren't sponsored by laundry detergent as one ours is called........ " Fairy ! " LOL
