1993 #55 Ted Musgrave USAir/Jasper Engines Ford Thunderbird

Another car for my "Project 93". That is my project to build every single car from the 1993 season I can find decals for, culminating in the full field in scale of the Daytona 500, which was the first race I ever saw.
Quite an ambitious project.
I do not remember this car running in real life. ( I was 8 at the time!) But, like I said below in my original briefing, it fits into 3 of my now 5 Multi-build projects. (Just today, 5/27/05, I added a scale collection of Elliott Sadler cars).
And, being a Ted Musgrave car, I had to build it, and it won out over 4 other white Fords for the body (89 Ernie Irvan, Jeff Gordon Baby Ruth and Dick Trickle Carolina Pottery) but once I got the Ted Musgrave decals I decided that it was really no contest.
These decals were hard. Not just hard, but difficult. They needed Micro-sol to conform, but yet they did not react well to Micro-sol either. It was a constant battle when applying them, but it looks good and was worth it in the long run.



Kit is a 1995-issue 1992 Mark Martin Ford and Blue Ridge decals. I love Blue Ridge but boy were they hard to apply! This also falls into my Jasper project and Ted Musgrave projects as well. Nice to have one car fit into three separate multi-piece projects!
