Off to the races! This will be a 1/24 Revell Bill Elliot donor for a 2001 John
Andretti Petty Enterprises NASCAR. I have used this kit before and it builds up
nice, a little less detailed than the newer of the Revell NASCAR kits but still
very well done. I am using aftermarket decals from JWTBM, Mike, and they look
awesome. I have the engine pretty much done, headers painted and most of the
frame parts sprayed light gray and drying up.---John

This will make for a great build, even though your covering up Bill to "git 'er dun".

I like Million Dollar Bill, AKA Awesome Bill from Dawsonville, I built
his 2004 Dodge for UAW Daimler-Chrysler ride in Vegas. Was sharp,
JWTBM decals, had dice all along rocker panels. Just gotta love a
Petty blue Dodge though. Myself I am rooting for Jr at Daytona. I had
seat in Allison section last year when he won 500! AWESOME!---John

Ya, Bill is my favorite driver of all time. I have been following his sons career and am impressed with him as well....even if he is going to be driving for Hendricks.

Know what you mean, love Jr to death but I have no use for Hendrick,
my wife has been following Khane and he also is with"The Dark Side".
Never liked the man, good team but to each his own, some people hate
Jr Nation. LOL---John

Good choice. Bill was sumpthin! I researched how much of his success was the car and how much was Bill himself. I suppose the same could be said of many great drivers and crews (Ernie Elliot's engines) who prepared their cars well.

Thanks, the headers are painted and on. I like fitting
them to the exhaust, not glued, so the dry up at the correct spacing
when added to the frame.---John

I started work on the chassis. The paint is still a bit tacky, been a week since I
sprayed it. I have the upper A arms, firewall, right side roll cage, shifter, and
ignition boxes installed. I found a reference picture showing the ignition boxes on the
passenger floor so I cut them off the roll cage cross bar and located them to the
floor.I also have more work on the engine and air cleaner.---John

Looks good John. Have you tried using an old fruit dehydrator for curing paint faster? I have, and its awesome for enamels.

So did you see the pics of the new Petty edition Mustang?

Thanks, I read years ago about buying the dehydrator from Wallyworld
and drying the paint. Just too lazy. Petty Mustang? I do remember Petty
driving Torinos I think but never Mustangs, hmmmmmmm.---John

Here is the driver figure that came with the car. A nice seated figure, they
fit the car nice, I have used them often. I have John Andretti painted up
in his fire suit. I still need to finish the helmet and add the face plate decal
to it and touch up some areas. The red stripe on his sleeves need white stripes
above and below them. I also want to check out some decals for sponsors on
the suit.---John

I sympathize with you about the slow dry time; that's why I avoid enamel at all costs. Your build is looking good though.''

Thanks, the driver figure is done, finished the helmet, touched up his fire
suit then added decal face plate. I could find no sponsor decals for his fire
suit so it is what it is. I also have the seat and dash board sprayed up
flat black.---John

This is way past my favourite NASCAR era but you are doing a grand job John.

May I suggest some Dullcote on the drivers overalls. They look a tad shiney to me.
