couldnt you type the name in black then again in colour then drag the coloured text on top of the black to create a shadow effect ??? or would that not work.

Bumper Automotive exterior Plastic Automotive design Wood Natural material Event Plastic Art Metal Wood Automotive exterior Automotive design Rectangle Plastic well been waiting in for parcels today so got out into garage and attacked the chevy chassis with the dremel....cut off all original front suspension and mouldings, and filled the chassis legs to make em a bit smoother, widened the bulkhead as i have cut out the inner wings, then added a tubular front x member and some bracing from the bulkhead to the front of chassis where the new spring hangers will be, also cut into floorpan for the new suspension at the rear. finally cut out most of original front crossmember as the new engine is a bit bigger:whistle: waiting to fit axles to determine ride height and whether i need to radius rear arches:tup:

at last..managed to do a bit on the model now that xmas and new year have passed! fitted front axle pirated from a dodge a100 and fitted springs and shackles, fitted rear axle and ladder bars, and finally got it onto 4 wheels!! built basic interior with apair of bucket seats and rollcage, trimmed front grille and deleted front bumper which meant i had to cut front wings to match, and built two engines as i cant decide which to use?? will add pics later:tup:
