Can I post a 'pic request' in here?

I want to paint a Protoform J71 like Roy Woods' Javelin.





Anyone got any more pics of it? Or more importantly - advice on the yellow and decals (for numbers with correct font)? I've got some low res pics of front and back, but would prefer some better pics of the car if anyone has them.

Thanks in advance,
-Drew

Press the body down on the chassis and see if you get any wheel rub. You might want to put some tape on the underside to keep the wheels from rubbing the paint off the inside of the fender. My Pegasus Camaro is still in the bag so I dont know if you will need to do that. I always thought the Pegasus Camaro was a little big for a VTA Chassis.

I LOVE the wood panels! Are they made from Coastal Redwood or Douglas Fir?
