Looks fantastic so far. How did you find the decals, particularly those large blue areas around the doors, anything to be aware of, any fitting problems..??

Thanks for your messages!

Steve, many problems with the blue decals, a lot of decal softener is needed. My advice is to start with the upper decals and let the bigger one to the last.

Re: Mclaren F1 GTR Fina 1997

Looks fantastic, really nice work..!! Thanks for the heads up on the decals. I had this really crazy idea that I might try and paint the blue areas on the doors..?? I have a Fina logo in white that would fit after the blue paint. Suppose I'd just need to find a suitable blue paint to match the decals and it should be relatively straight forward..

Great progress, did you spray the dash with low pressure to achieve the finish?
