Ive got a set of those decals from chuck to make this car, i will also be using the wynns winder car.

May i ask please what shade/name of red did you use for the car? I want to get mine as close to real thing as possible.

If you mean the 'Mr Revell' that was originally done in a Chrysler U.K. red, the Blue was Chrysler U.K. 'Electric Blue' met.
On my model (earlier posts) I used Humbrol 'Signal red' that was just about right.

Nope you cant get a better answer than that :D

Thanks Harefield and Jeff will keep this info in mind when i start mine.

If anyone else is looking to build this car the valve covers in the kit are wrong for the car. I have managed to make a mould of a proper set of donvan valve covers that i can cast for anyone who wants them?

You are correct on the valve covers, I wish I'd put a little more effort into making the correct one. Don't think I'll change them now though. The distributor is also in the wrong place on the kit engine. (I did change that)
