Re: '57 Chevy to the paint shop - did someone say Fireball?

Decided to try my hand at a #22 Fireball Roberts tribute using a set of decals I snagged off eBay. I still have to do passenger side decals - but needed to let the current decals dry/cure for a bit first - but thought I'd share a "progress" shot just the same. :D

Finally had an opportunity to get the '57 finished up!
I took a couple outside shots coming up on dusk - so they are a bit dark - but happy with how she turned out!
:D

Here is a view I hope a couple other racers end up seeing...
