I was just busting your chops. Many of the guys here are even running silver cans (and winning). RCGT has gotten so huge here that VTA doesn't stand much of a chance so we can't take it all that seriously.

Since you say you lost a bunch of paint, I hope you didn't make the same mistake I did- used enamel instead of lacquer?

Default First T/A Paint

Saw a VTA race a few weeks ago. Had to have one. Chassis is TC3. Paint is Faskolor Faspearl Blue, Faspearl Silver and Fasorange. Stickers are from CSeils -- he's somewhere on this board.

Got some good ideas at historictransam - dot-com -- they have a good list of currently running historic T/A cars in period livery. Lots of photos. I wanted to have something unique, yet still in the spirit of the old T/A paint schemes.

Will begin to scuff it next weekend.
