What have my fellow modellers found to be the best for STP red, for instance?

Gloss white paint?

Matte white paint?

Matte white primer?

Super Secret Sauce?

I added a coat of pale yellow (hope it is pale enough) to the Charger, now when the wife leaves the house for a bit, I am going to lay a few coats of the Testors day glo red on and see how it works.... it is actually more pale than in this photo, by about half...

Looking forward to seeing this one . I've always loved these era chargers etc . 

Being from southern England ( Just 50ish miles from Goodwood ) and to hear that the King was there with The Racers Edge Charger

We all went wearing every Mopar T shirt we had LOL
