This is looking sweet Ron 1973 Mickey Thompson Vega Funny Car - Page 3 1705482731 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 1973 Mickey Thompson Vega Funny Car - Page 3 3887228019

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. 1973 Mickey Thompson Vega Funny Car - Page 3 3887228019

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!

Thanks guy, they are all SLixx decals on the tires, no stencils. Glad you like it...
