    So here's the conversation between the person wrapping the car and I

    Wrapping the top also?
    yes, but note that my car is a post car and the NASCAR was a hardtop

    You putting all the trim back on it?

    yes, like the race car I'm going to leave the window trim stainless, but the fin trim was body color, so I'll need that wrapped. Since I'm driving on the street, I'll need tail lights. I figure body color, but maybe a hair more rusty. The fin trim on my car (cheaper Savoy) is far shorter than Petty's Fury. I'm looking at the bumpers on the race car, and they look to be aluminum instead of Chrome. Thinking a tarnished and pitted aluminum look wrap for them. They'll be off and any rust and pitting fixed.
    This wrap will have to be printed to achieve the patina look....I assume the hood measures about the same as the wagon(so will have to seam is somewhere). Can you measure the hood at widest points.
    I'm at lake, but I'll go through my texts and email to find measurements

    Matte finish or clear-coated look(shiny rust)?
    Matte

    Do you have that Petty model car? If so send me shots of it all the way around so I can recreate those decals.

    I do have an autographed Petty model of that car, but the enclosed photos might be better.

      Car will look good once it's finished.

      Are you upgrading the brakes to disc or leaving the drum\shoe setup?

              Engine and transmission mocked up and mounts tacked in, I'll have a pro welder come by to TIG them in, along with the wheelie bars on the Thug and shock tower in Pontiac.
