Thats a very nice paint job. I love the way the windows are trimmed. It doesnt really match the VTA theme but Its a great paint job.

And that is key for me with my eyesight now a days.

The guys at my track don't seem to like the bright orange my car is, they sa it's distracting. Maybe it will help, they'll see the orange coming get distracted and hit a wall, that's the only way I'll make to the front.

Luckly not.

And the Net was from a decal sheet for oval body. From protoform, I think. Would have been nice if there was a red one to match the rest of the car.

Default Nice paint!

That Cuda at the top of the page is actually quite fresh. I like it. And there were some wild paint job back then too! The window nets are on ebay and add some realism to the bodys.

Nice paint guys. But some of these VTA's are starting to look like touring cars.
But remember the VTA rules: " Fluoresent color, wild graphics, chromes and non-period correct paint schemes are frowned upon."

What you didnt clean it off! Thats the most realistic decoration you can put on a race car is black donuts on the side. Those are a mark of honor.
