    Did a little bit more on the hood & just put the second coat of black on the back half, it's in the box drying. Those little barbwire lines are a real hoot to lay on there. Not. They are wiggly little turds. LOL

    Burns my butt that I just noticed the barbwire & tape don't line up. It's a pain getting the to come back off but i'll have to do it. Disappointed in myself..[​IMG]

    Is the barb wire on backwards?

    No sir, I got one side either to long or to short however you want to look at it. The tape that covers the two outside hood pins aren't even..

    Welcome to the disappointing club, my friend. Just wait until you only have one decal to get it right... and you put it on the wrong side. Or you're all done... except for that door number that's now wrinkled and stuck to your thumb. Or you place that decal that you thought had a white background, but it's clear. Chock 'em up as lessons learned. They're gonna happen. Just try to enjoy the journey, that's the whole idea.

    That is better than completing the decaling and then sealing it at which point you notice the GoodYear decal over the right front tire shifted big time. Had that happen on a Robby Gordon 1/64th custom I did.

    It does, but it is what it is...other than that one "flaw", it looks good.

    The truck looks amazing! It's hard work but worth it. Can't wait to see the final product.

    This side is about done. Micro Sol is on an doing it's 24 hr magic.. Hard not to continue on but don't want to damage the decals.. That's just the way I like to do it..
    As always comments are welcome & appreciated...
    I really hate those little pieces of Barbwire..
    Glad i'm on vacation...
