I had some issues when building the 1965 Fairlane Modified Stocker, so I dented it, rusted it, flattened the tires, and parked it in a field.... I call this "OUT OF ACTION".

Awsome build. Seen lots of these "retired" racers parked in back yards and fields.

Thanks everyone. The comments mean a lot to me.

My next dio will be a dirt track section, with billboards, wood guard rails, and.....who knows what else.....

Maybe this will help you out. No billboards but gives you some Ideas.

Ed the guard rails are just strips of corrugated cardbord box. I cut the to where I had 3-4 bumps. Then wet the backing, and pealed off the outer layers. Use a spray bottle to apply the water. the pots are just wooden dowel rod cut to size. I pained them with Silver Tempra paint, or you could use spray. Glued to the dowels with white glue, then placed in the dio.

The fence is dowel rod again, with window screen mesh( fiberglass this time), painted silver. Diluted glue was thrown at it, then real dirt added.

The half tire on the infield are a bunch of old tires I had from varios kits just cut in half, and painted white.
