Hi
I've purchased a highway volvo p1800 (as my dad use to drvie one while I was in charge of the overdirve button) and I want to source/make the decals for the car. Its a road car so it only needs the volvo insigna on the bonnet and the chromed VOLVO for the rear.

I want to also replace the painted headlights and indicators with lens but have not a clue where to start. Also I want to add the boot handle and petrol cap key - anything better than a blob of paint!?

Here are some pics of the decals I'm after (the logos are low quality so prefer higher definition ones (or does that not matter?))

cheers
Matt

Marlon - if I can find no decals better I will try these. I'll also try your pin idea.

Fate - yes please, as all advice, methods are very welcome.

Gunther - I intend to do a write up about this model for the forum when I've finished, but don't hold your breath.

cheers
Matt

that would be excellent as I've tried printing silver and it just looks washy. The decals required are the VOLVO (seperate letter one) emblazoned on the rear, the rear badge which is the 1800 with the S under it, and the trianglar volvo badge. If you're able a few of each of those would give me scope for trial and error (inevitable with my current level of modelling skills!). Let me know how much and I'll get the cheque in the post straight away.

To the 1:1 version: when I move to the country I intend to get myself a real one but at the mo the slot car version is as close as I'm likely to get. We had a '68 P1800S in green with a tan interior - just got loads of excellent cruising memories. The E and ES versions are much rarer and now command a hefty price tag for original ones.

thanks again and any other help adivce welcome esp on:
- how to on lens
- how to create a decent looking dashboard
- sources of steering wheels and rear view mirrors

cheers
Matt
