Picked up the AMC Javelin body at my local track/shop today. Will start looking at some paint options and post a pic when I get it done.

A couple pics I took today with the new combo: Xray T4 and Protoform Firebird.






For those interested, I'm running 6mm hexes front and rear. May look into a 7mm hex for the rear soon since the tires are so tucked. Car worked great!

BTW, yes, I know I used the wrong shade of blue for the stripe. It was all I had.

Cain, I'm assuming you're referring to me? If so, I've got the RJ Speed (used to be Bolink?) interior. It's not listed on their site that I can find, but here it is at Tower:
http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0001p?&I=LXDADB

Be warned, it's very, very thin in spots and can be a challenge to trim masking tape or mask with an Xacto! I've got it simply mounted to the underside of the body using servo tape. It's the same interior I used in my HPI '69 Camaro, as well. I'll see if I can grab a pic of the underside for you later today...

Actually you meant to say the blue looks great in person but you aren't sure why it looks off in the photo...lol!

Thanks for posting the pictures. Every new picture give me ideas/inspires me for my next VTA body.

@Tommy R,
Where'd you get that "Trans Am" decal across the top of the windshield?

It's one of Carl's USVTA stickers from the sheet he sells. I just applied it over a reflective white decal windshield eyebrow.
