This is looking sweet Ron Great job on everything.

I'm going to try the clear before the alclad chrome but I've been using dark blue instead of black for a different effect

Some rolling chassis action here....and the wheels are resin aftermarket wheels and tires.

That would be nice to see again. Maybe even a Castrol dragster.

Nice one Ron.

I like the 'distressed' look to the Goodyear lettering.

Brilliant work Ron, especially on the chrome. Never thought of putting a gloss lacquer coat between the black and chrome Alclad.

Luv the wheels/tires. Front tires look like paint on embossed letters molded on tires (to me anyway).
Body paint is perfect as are decals. My my my!
