    Got a couple of RRR fairgrounds racer bodies from Pete yesterday. They are just bare bodies right now, but they are beautiful canvases to work up. I am not the greatest at painting and decals but, I'll be working on them. I am going to try putting them on Tuff Ones chassis. Last night, I tried to do the bumpers on my 57 Ford. It didn't come out good enough for me so they will get stripped. I would like to do it two-tone black and white as shown. I'm not sure how I want to do the red 57 Chevy yet.

    I use the little bottles of Duplicolor touch up paint for the chrome and air cleaners, they work great. If you're going to spray the whole car then Krylon is working just fine for that. Glad they got there OK.

    Thanks for the tip! I was able to clean up a slight over brush on the trunk emblem with a little windex and a razor so it's good now. I will tape up the bumpers and white areas when I spray the black.
