Thanks, proffesor. Yeah, I already trimmed the front spoiler as you show in your pics 'cause it was crazy low! It may be high enough now, but my body isn't mounted as low as yours so it may be okay as-is. I'll trim it more if need be.

I'm hopeful the Shoe Goo will work, but I think I may sandwich some Lexan to the inside of the spoiler since it's sooo thin! But I'm glad to hear the body is tough! My '69 Camaro body seems to tear up too easily on the front corners.

I'm with your daughter! LOL! I think the Parma bodies are pretty ugly, personally. I love the detail in the HPI bodies, though!

The Parma bodies are what the R/C airplane guys call "Stand-off Scale." Or maybe borderline "Stand WAY-off Scale!"

lol yeah, they definitely have a look to them.

But with my footing the bill for her "bash the body into pieces" escapades, may get her an ugly one or hang it over her head to drive better .

After racing my Sunoco Camaro for a year I decided it was time for something new. Carl came through for me once again with a new sticker set. Enter the Warren Tope Boss 302.

The pics look awful.....really faded, but the color is a vibrant red. The wing, spoiler, hood, trunk, and rear and painted black underneath with Rustoleum matte clear on the outside. Hopefully it'll hold up pretty well!

We were talking about the Monster Energy logo a while back. Wonder who actually drew it or sketched it out? Probably some young new graphics dude who got paid an hour's wages for it. It was worth millions of $! Cool looking Trans Am... Like the matching headlight covers especially.
