Actually wait for it is what they said. It will be available as a replacement part. I hope that means clear and un punched.

Looking for someone to lay down some nice paint on a 69 Camaro body. Light blue with silver and red accents/stripes. Anyone around?

Where can I get some VTA numbers? I thought the J71 would come with them, but no
I have my car just about ready to go once I get back from vacation. 1st onroad car for me in about 13 years, so far its a blast trying to keep up with Battman.

XXX-Main sells a few different number decals (http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...2=MAIN&S3=&S4=)

The decal sheet for the Losi Slider also has some decent numbers in various sizes (http://losi.com/Products/Features.aspx?ProdId=LOSB8206)

Parma sells a number paint mask for 1/10 scale cars (http://parmapse.shptron.com/products...1.0.0.0?pp=15&)

-----------

You can make your own white circle to put the numbers on your car with a circle cutter and adhesive vinyl - such as Monokote trim (http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...trim&search=Go).

Since Monokote trim comes in multiple colors it can also be used as stripes on the outside of a car (hood/trunk stripes on a Camaro for example). When using Monokote trim as the rear stripe on a Camaro, it helps secure the rear spoiler and will help it from detaching/falling off the car during contact.

----------

I've also used Carl Seils circle and number decals, which are very good. He also has decals to replicate specific VTA schemes such as the 42/48 'Cuda. He also sells a good headlight/taill light set for the Pegasus Mustang (The Pegasus bodies don't come with any decals) I believe the link in the post before mine has that info.

----------

Also check with other VTA racers that are local to you. Many of the HPI cars come with extra decals - such as white circles, number decals, and even spare headlights. I've used plenty of the extra HPI headlight decals on other brand VTA bodies as well as various other stickers (door handles, contigency, grill decals, etc).

These USVTA sticker sheets from Carl Seils are reasonably priced ($9.00 per sheet) and are A+ quality ...

Just got my first VTA car finished up. This is all new to me, I'm an offroad guy. Looking forward to getting it on the rug.
