Car to proud of. Good work!

When I screw up on a paint job I just explain it as "simulated racing damage". Just tell people you wanted the look of the car "After the Race".

Excellent work on the Jeff Gordon car. I'm glad to see someone out there still likes Nascar replica slotcars besides myself.
