So it's a Faux-vak servo? Where did you get the label made?

Used to be a kit car Ferrari replica made in the UK and they sold Farreri badges for it to get round being sued :lol:

How/what do you do to make it look so shiny and smooth as glass? Man that's sweet.

We clean it good, then clear coat it with automotive clearcoat (not spray balm). It seals in the classiness to be viewed for eternity. These novak escs (4,t4) single handedly defined rc racing for us in the 80s. The lemans 240st was a close 2nd. Two best RC products ever made, EVER!

You mean legit auto clear coat you pour in a spray gun, and not something like Dupli-Color clear coat spray you get at the auto parts store?
