I really wanted STP stickers for the quarters...

I like it! Not to be picky but those are the exhaust pipes coming out of the front under the bumper. I like that you have "team colors" shared by your TC and T/A (judging by your avatar). I do the same:

I like the orange!!!
Crap...the exhaust does not exit there? LOL
Yes you are correct...at least I think you are, I pulled them from a new 350 Nismo body sticker kit. And in my case they are now front brake ducts
I like the team concept...I am also building another one that my daughter is going to try out...all the same except pink where there is red...if nothing else I will have a backup car.

Question to Pegasus or Parma body owners: How is the durability of those bodies?

Just saw a new black Mustang GT with red stripes. I think I know how I'm going to paint the body I won last weekend.

I had assumed that the regular HPI Mustang body came with the dual exhaust stickers, as the '65-'66 Mustang GTs had dual exhaust that exited through the rear valance like that. So I was wrong about what I was seeing as well! Brake ducts are very useful though lol.

Actually, I just looked at the decal sheet and apparently not...but anyway trying be a little creative. I also tried to make the front license plate area look like a rad inlet by cutting another piece of a grill decal from the Nismo sheet. Too fun!!

The Pegasus are lighter lexan. The Boss Mustang has held up pretty good. The Cuda and Camaro, with more complex front end shapes, are more fragile.
