Bill Elliott's  1981 Mel-Gear  Thunderbird
Built By : Eddie Bass

This car was made using slixx decals & a 81 monogram tbird kit. The car was built straight from the box . The outer body was sprayed dark blue metallic & interior as well as chassis were sprayed ghost gray. I used bare metal foil aroung both front and rear window frames instead of paint to give  it a better look. The rims were sprayed with a dull glosscoat to tone them down. The only extra step i did was to drill out the exhaust pipes, this will add a lot better look to your model rather than the closed  pipe that comes in the kit
