Default my first paint job "General Lee"

Let me know what you think. I did the flag, numbers and lettering myself using Photoshop 7. I didn’t find anything out there that I like so I did it myself… Hit me up if you want me to send you a copy of my template. All you need is a vinyl sheet and your set.

I think I may take you up on your offer, I just finished painting my charger body, and I still can't find any decals. I would love it if you could provide a template!

Here you go!

I want to check it out when you’re done. Just to help you out a little I placed an orange line around the flag, numbers and letters to make it easier to cut out...

Thanks, El D Yours looks pretty sharp too. Maybe we should market these decals, I looked High and low and NO one offered them.

you should be able to put the HPI classic car bodies on anything, from big monsters to low profile street rockets, it's all in the cutting and prepwork

i've got a little question:

how can you remove the blower frome the hood of the dodge charger?

and where do you get that piece that's covering the hole?

The blower can be cut from the hood and the extra piece is actually moulded into the excess plastic below one of the wheel arches so you just cut it out and stick it in place.
