This is a rebuilt and repainted diecast to add to my "Buck Simmons" collection...the Gerald Voyles owned car he got his 1000th career win in. Paint is John Deere green and yellow from Tractor Supply, decals are my own. The actual car is currently on display at The Georgia Auto Racing Museum in Dawsonville GA. Thanks for looking!

Looks great. fbr How difficult is it to strip the paint and redo if you don't mind me asking? :lol:
I have wondered what it is like to be normal.

Thanks, Y'all! Stripping and repainting a diecast isn't hard at all. Since it's metal, I stripped it with Aircraft stripper I bought at Advance Auto. Be sure to wear protective gloves, because that's some nasty stuff! Then I removed the mold lines, did all the bodywork with Bondo, scuffed it with steel wool and applied an etching primer, which I also got at Advance. You can then wet-sand and apply your paint over that. It's pretty much like working with a real car.
