Sure you can. Just throw a nice, clean, towel over it.

Clean and simple is the way to go with these cars, most of them ran the paint scheme on them they got from the factory. All the cars looked good at the race at MIMI's

My body has the same defect. But it's still a cool looking body.

I will be the first to admit that Parma shells are pretty far behind the pack. The least detail, worst decals, The only thing positive I can say is that they are thick and will take a pounding. But even with all that, I think you guys are being pretty rough on ol Parma. Im glad Im not the guy in charge of product development for Parma. Then again if I was there shells would actually look like the cars they are trying to represent. And I would make a Javelin.

I had a friend that had a 63 Split window Vette on an old Tamiya Hot shot. I think it might have been a Parma shell. Maybe it was Bolink.
