I know how you feel. I would love to get some redbull nascar decals, but it's almost impposible to find a store that sells the. The best way to get your decals, is to buy a vinyl cutter, and get the logos from http://www.brandsoftheworld.com. It isn't cheap, but over time, it pays for itself.

You can get a 1/10 COT body from McAllister Racing and a #20 decal set from Mike's Decals.

Forum is not allowing me to post URLs but if you Google for both the above names you will find them.

I found the website following your directions. Thank you!
Mike has Jack Daniels decals, Amp/National guard decals and well at Earnhardt senior decals.

One down one to go...we are now looking for either Carl Edwards, Jimmy Johnson, Matt Kenseth, or Jeff Burton decals.

Great to hear - I made this #20 a few months ago for my Tamiya TT01-D chassis and I recently ordered an 88 decal set from Mike, to make a new Dale Jr body for my Slash

I'm a bad gauge of how long it takes to build/paint bodies, because I am generally impatient and rush things... but it turns out that my rush method usually yields halfway decent results, so they look ok.

BTW here is the completed Dale Jr #88 Amp Energy body for the Slash which I wrapped up this weekend. This one took a lot longer as it involved masking 3 primary colors (metallic green, pearl white, black) plus 2 different backing coats, plus a bad experience with Pactra's "Pearl White" color which is super translucent, so I had to run out to pick up a Tamiya White to put behind it.

This was all done with rattle-can spray paint.

The #88 decal set is from Mike's Decals.

There are high quality decals available from Bruce Patto @ http://members.optushome.com.au/pattosplace/home.html
He is not shipping until the end of September but his stuff is first rate. Some have said a bit expensive but considering the time required to do your own it seems fair to me.

Wow, nice selection, but US$50 ... Don't make any mistakes while applying them!
