Thanks again jchrisf. Yes I couldn't wait for retirement, but others I worked with sit at home watching day-time TV and vegitate! How boring, and life shortening!

Patrick, great build, I love the sponsor and it looks fantastic!

I cannot agree with you more about retirement. Now I am busy by choice, doing the things I always wanted to do but couldn't because of work; now if I can only keep my abilities and live till 300 I can possible get all my stash built. 

Once again, good modeling my friend...

Thanks DRUMS01 for your comments. I went to a Diabeties Prevention Meeting only the other day and the majority of people there were retired, and well you would have thought that their world had collapsed as they had nothing to do with their time any more as work had been the highlight of their day/ life and they had no inkling of hobbies etc, deadly future!

If I didn't have shaky hands I would have built the lamps with all the tiny metal pins supplied. So I added plastic straps and painted the top matt black for night stages...........

That is cool. I love the look of those rally cars.  My ultimate decal dream car is an Australian Supercar but I don't think that will ever happen.  Now I have to look up Colorado decals. Nevr heard that term.

Yes, I will have no problem with retirement.  I have too many hobbies to keep me busy.

Well justmike I have a Resin model Holden Club Sport on the shelf with aftermarket Valvolene decals to comvert to Supercar. I bought it from Oz about ten years ago and had it shipped over. There are two Holden pick-ups around here, both lowered and loud!

OK justmike, I've put a new thread on here Cavalier Holden Club Sport Curbside kit..

It shows all you need to see about the kit, plus my lean on different wheels and the Valoline decals form Pattos Place.

The kit has everything except axles. All body/glass/interior and tyres. Soon after I got it I had an email from the producers saying to take the tyres out of any plastic wrap or bags they might be in as they degrade quickly. That's why you see an extra set of my tyres, thier tyres are sticky and stuck together and extremly soft!

So I will then add rollcage, racing seat, decal belts (my own printed) etc to hopefully complete a Holden V8 Supercar!

Of course the bonnet can be cut out and a suitable engine/trans added if wanted.
