Bought this when it first came out in 1986. Built it initially as a rallycross car, now they are re-appearing at classic rallycross meetings. Resurrected the decals, large ones OK some smaller ones not so. It has full engine/transmission details.

How do you resurrect decals?!  Its a colorful little car.

The decals were still in the box so seeing that they were a bit dry I gave them two coats of clear enamel gloss, drying between each coat. After an hour they are ready to carefully cut out closely around each decal and put them in hot water and lay up onto the body. That's what I call resurrect.

They would possibly, as I've had before, beeing very dry, the decals would flake off the backing and turn to dust.

Yup. Definitely resurrected.  I'm surprised the enamel dried that quickly!

Yes I use Plasti-Kote rattle cans, either Dull-Kote or Gloss Clear, normally dry in about 30 minutes on decal sheets.
