Sorry for the title, just grabbing attention! My son picked the colors, not my first choice, or second, or third. He named the car Scout Racer.

I think it's Gorgeous !!!
Is the center section Finished Wood, Monokote, ?
I also liked what happened when I "clicked" on the picture. Pretty clever.

Center is Tester's Gold Lacquer. Pinstripes is Pinstripe tape. Blue is Krylon Gloss Blue and I HATE IT! Sprayed it with Dupli-color clear coat and it lifted horribly. My original paint job was much better.

This car is one of four entries my family is entering in Mid-America. I am tuning it next Friday and we'll see if it's a contender or not. If not, I'll build another!

Just a suggestion. On a pinewood derby car, it's best to stay with all lacquer based products. They dry quickly and have a very short "sensitive" stage. For color coats Testors 1 coat cover is probably the best because it covers quickly so you are not building up a lot of weight. Probably any Clearcoat paint could be used, automotive Urethane being the best. I would stay away from all enamels. They seem to cause nothing but heartache.
