getting ready to set up a VTA car, where can I get some circles and number kits?
Go to : Internal Decals For Sale

I make custom numbers and sponsor sheets. All T/A decals are for exterior application.

Custom Numbers - 9" x 11" sheet (approx), enough to make 5 cars, $8 - shipping included.
T/A Sponsor decal sheet - (9" x 6") - $7 - Shipping included.

Fonts can be found on my decal site.

Here is my first VTA body. Went with momochromatic bumpers which was an option in 70 for mother Mopar. I have some Number decals coming.

As far as the flat black hood or roof, I'm wondering- has anyone tried painting the flat black on the inside, then just a clear flat on the hood?

That way the back can remain and you can retouch up the flat clear as needed.

DodgeBoy did you say that you were cutting your own window mask? Your lines for the chrome edging are tight.

On another note I have a question about using automotive paints on lexan. Aside from the paints that we all know work on lexan, like Faskolor and Createx, Pactra, Tamiya and the House of Kolor, I was looking for more options. I have asked my local paint shop about getting some automotive laquers for use on Lexan. There were two responses. 1. That getting Auto Laquer was difficult and that 2. It was very brittle and would spatter like eggshell. I have heard just the opposite about the laquer. I know somewhere there are guys using some HOK paints that are automotive. This paint shop reccommended using and automotive urethane base coat instead and, of all things he had a Lexan shell from an 1/8 scale oval car that had been sprayed with it. The paint looked like it was holding up pretty good to a beating.

Anyone else using an alternative paint source?

snoopy,

I used automotive Acr. Lacquer for years...a QUART lasts a LONG, LONG time!

Anymore I just use RATTLE CANS, and since the MODEL MASTER Paint went Lacquer, it opened a TON of New Colors

True. The cans are great colors, especially with the Testors Custom Laquer series. And I can get them at Hobby Lobby instead of driving 45min. I was just wondering. I do wish I could get the Testors in a bottle. I find the airbrush to be more economical.

Thanks for your response.

I'm going to get into VTA racing, and have a few questions, probably more cosmetic then functional. First, What's the size of the Tires and wheels that I have to buy in order to have the them look flush to the sides of a Mustang body. I'm looking for a TC4 or TC5 platform for the body to sit on. Second whats the biggest size diameter I can use?
