very cool build! i like the chipped paint . the mud may be a little heavy handed and uneven. you could soften the edge where the mud meets the rubber of the tires. try a mud colored wash in the areas that didn't get the spatter to give a dusty look. this hard for me to say since I am very heavy handed myself i often put some mud on then wipe it off then repeat the process until I like it. hope this helps, tom

Hey Nick - Slammin' Sammy would be proud! Great job. Just a pointer for ya here - take some of that mud and feather it onto the nerf bars and chassis on each side, and then a light smatterin on the front lower part of the hood. Usually, the front part of the headers gets a fair amount of mud/dirt on them during a race too. One technique that I use: Take a fairly stiff brush (usually one with white or tan bristles) dip it in your paint, then dab it on a paper towel till most of the paint is gone, then dob the brush onto the areas where you want some weathering - kinda like dry brushing - you can do this with your mud on the tires/wheels, nerf bars, headers etc. The effect is great, and it is super easy....here is my weldin/push truck after a night pushin off sprint cars at the track - it was heavy and slick before they packed the track in!! I used the "dry brush" technique here:

Hope this helps, and keep experimentin, you are there with some fine tuning! Remember, if part of that car is getting all muddy/dusty, the rest probably is too. Especially, the parts that stick out - nerf bars, headers, suspension etc! Keep up the good work, and good luck in the show! Let us know how you do!
