Yes it's all paint, except the grill; and yes it's based on the stevensons camero.

Would take another picture but it's already been raced and has battle scars.

I've been working on my third "General Lee" Charger/Challenger. We are making do with the Challenger body to keep it VTA legal Still, it looks nice.

I used liquid mask to get the front grill to look more like a charger and the same approach with the tail lights. Also put front window side vents on like the Charger had. I just have a little more work to do tonight to get it glued up and the spoiler mounted. He's running the one that I airbrushed for him previously.

I think this new one will be his "show" body. The previous one is his "go" body.

Every time I see one of those I keep thinking someone needs to do a Rosco P. Coltrane squad car as well. Looks good!

Team Blue Groove sells an unlicensed Charger in 190mm no mask or decals, but that doesn't seem to be a problem for you.
I am even more impressed when I see that you did all that with a Pashe t-shirt gun.

I used to use an expensive Thayer & Chandler airbrush, but I swear that thing would clog spraying pure water. The Paasche dual-action with a medium tip and straight Faskolor just doesn't. The only time I get problems is if I go too long between full cleanings. So it's the airbrush I'm sticking with for now. And, our local Hobby Lobby stocks parts for it.

The Paasche is like the AK-47 of airbrushes. It will operate dirty because it has just enough slop in it to allow it to. My Thayer and Chandler was a cheap one. Still it was a ton better than the Badger that I started with at twice the price.
Right now I am spraying with an Iwata Eclipse. I am pretty happy with it. Has the little cup on top. I think it holds a quarter ounce of paint at a time. I've never used a VL. It always looked so fat to me. It apparently works well for you. With RC bodies, I don't see the need for an expensive micron.

Does anybody know if you can buy just the decal sheet from a HPI 70' Boss Mustang, or do you have to buy the body? I am really just looking for the Boss 302 black stripes for the hood and sides if anyone has any they would part with, I would be interested. Thanks

PM rctech user CSeils He does custom sticker sets and may already have what you want.

So you don't need the grill and light markers? C Seils is always a great option, but I might have something. I always save my decal sheets. Whatever is left of them.

Yeah, just the hood and side stripes. If someone painted a body and didn't use the stripes, that would be awesome. I want to use them on a different body or use them to mock up stripes to be painted on.
