Absolutely, I will be selling both, it is somewhat my core business after all. I just needed something to supplement the body business.
I am also doing complete cars, built to order, any level of hop ups you could want.
I have three cars on the bench right now that will be photographed for the website, but will also be for sale as well, with a 4th and 5th to follow.The online store is admittedly a bit crude, but I wanted to get something up and running. The important thing is that anyone can populate a cart, and checkout after they are done shopping.
I am trying to figure out how to present the decal sheets in the store, hopefully that will be resolved in the next week or so.

nice! there is definitely a shortage of f1 decals in the u.s. to be able to buy a already painted f1 body with decals would be great for some of us who dont have the painting talent.

All seem to be made of the same fibreglass material & the same thickness.

So one could just get a Kit T-Plate and dremel out the U slot to convert it to the High Traction Plate, yes?

I also found when sanding the Kit plate black finish seemed to be layered throughout the plate (different material I think). So in summary, the modified t-plate was better then standard but the High Traction I think is still the best for grip.

Default F1 2011 teams on the catwalk

Some more Ferrari, Lotus and the Mexican driver/sponsor Sabuer.
It's good to be back in F1, Pedro Rodriguez drove last time for Ferrari and other teams back in 1968. Incredible that we still don't have a U.S. car!

I am glad to see that ugly long air intake gone (looked like a sailfish!)

Nice

Adelante Scuderia Sabuer Telmex




Lotus cool




Cheers!

N = Medium
W = Soft

Do the same

No need to, just run them. I clean them with simple green after each run some folks like to do it with Goo-gone.

thanks ahead of time..
No problem... M
