Another little update. I got this off Steve on eBay, nice guy and not sure if he’s on here or following but he accepted my offer and received today.

It’s not in great shape so will need to work out a plan.

I’ve contacted Nathaneal at MCI and I’m hoping I can peel these decals off and scan them to him for copies. I think this will help me and lots of other people out there. That makes me happy, as you know I make copies of things and don’t think things are sacred. Many copy decals in the market making many people happy.

The body, not sure.... TGB don’t want to touch it and my home made vacuum former and skills are not up to the job...

Too late, it did look good but I am on a mission, the body really needs work.

I've pulled the decals off as carefully as possible and scanned them in for MCI. Fingers crossed, along with the photo's he can get going.

I am missing the KC spotlights though and it seems the from light square backs. Does anyone actually have one of these who could help with measurements and maybe pictures PLEASE B)

I had this thought, I wouldnt be surprised if they were a little larger. However I do not know this not having the light itself. MCI would have loads of mocked up examples already flo, considering they much do things like the blackfoot decals. Thanks for the offer :y:

Now where did you get to with this build? Finished?
If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem mate :)

Funny you should ask. The chassis hasn’t progress but after some back and forth with Nathaneal at MCI he produced the repro decals and I have two sets here with me now.

After trying to Paint strip my Renault 5 Turbo originally Body I’m really nervous about doing the Chevy. Basically used Tamiya cleaner for polycarbonate and it opened up the cracks, pretty much fell apart in my hands :(
