    The few I've seen have been mostly intertwined with Cup photos. There are a few over at Motorsport.com in the Cup gallery. Kenny Wallace has a few Busch photos posted on his Google+ profile as well from that weekend. But other than that, I really haven't seen any.

    @LarryFoyt50, I would just recommend to make a post on Reddit like I did. That's how I got in contact originally with the person from Dover. Maybe there's some other users there that also have pictures from that race. ;)

    The life of a perfectionist. lol. By dumb luck, found a 'high-res' picture of the back of Blaney's car that had the 'BP' decal on the back, so, I've finally found out what the 'real' text is beside the BP logo. It's "Lubricants", not "Ultimate". So, another decal to redo for a car, but at least it shouldn't be too hard to make. haha. :)

    You probably don't need anymore reference material, but here's Happy Hour from that weekend too.

    Any extra reference material is always good. :) Still on the look out for a video of Qualifying. That would be the most helpful for the DNQ cars like Rick's #27.

    Well, it's finally update time boys. I've finally found the time to get the #5 overhaul finished. So, I'm going to show it off now. :)

    #5:
    [​IMG]

    Some of the fixes include the following:
    Rebuild the base scheme from the ground up.
    Redrew all the Kellogg's characters from the ground up in vector format from either personal pictures or my scan of my 2001 #5 hauler. Pop was the only trouble maker, as the picture I took of him on the souvenir hauler had a completely different neck tie compared to the one on the 2001 car. Trying to find a picture showing how exactly it was on the car was a pain in the butt, but I finally found an o-k reference from a diecast shot.
    Redid the 'Kellogg's' logos to work way better with the warp problems on the QPs.
    Corrected the 'EA Sports' decal to the late-2001 version from the early-2001 one.
    Created a custom made Aeroquip contig decal of the 2000 version of the decal, as for some unknown reason, they ran it here at this, and only this race weekend in 2001.
    All the associate sponsor decals (including the USA ones) have been completely overhauled, including the 'GIANT' one to add in the missing text below it (the supermarket's catch-phrase).
    Created brand new car numbers for the car (which includes the mostly missed 'registered' icon that's on the side numbers).
    Brand new custom made rear spoiler (hard to see on the render because of the model I use).
    Overhauled firesuit for Terry (not visible on render).
    Brand new custom made pit crew for the car (not visible on render).

    Enjoy and if you see anything wrong, please don't hesitate to let me know so I can correct it on any of the cars I've shown off in this thread. ;)

    Well guys, I'm back and I have some new overhauls to show off. This time I'm showcasing 2 of the cars out of the Roush Racing stables, the #6 of Mark Martin & the #99 of Jeff Burton.

    #6:
    [​IMG]

    Some of the fixes include the following:
    Rebuild the base scheme from the ground up.
    Fixed up some of the associate sponsor decals (including the contig decals).
    Corrected location of the #6 on the headlight.
    Fixed up the USA Flags on the car.


    #99:
    [​IMG]

    Some of the fixes include the following:
    Rebuild the base scheme from the ground up (including some 'star' issues on the passenger side).
    Created brand new numbers for the car to fix drop shadow issues.
    Fixed some minor placement issues for a few of the associate sponsors.


    Enjoy and if you see anything wrong, please don't hesitate to let me know so I can correct it on any of the cars I've shown off in this thread. ;)

    What the deuce, another update in the same month?? Has hell frozen over?!?! :p :)

    Today I'll be showing off the teammates out of the Robert Yates Racing stable, #28 Ricky Rudd & #88 Dale Jarrett.

    #28:
    [​IMG]

    Some of the fixes include the following:
    Fixed up the USA Flags on the car to work with the minor warp areas that affect decals that normally go beyond the hood and onto the fenders.
    Brand new custom made car numbers.
    Created brand new 'Raybestos' decals, including adding the catch phrase to the one on the rear (which I originally had as just the 'Brakes' text).
    Created new 'Havoline' text that works way better with the warp problem areas on the rear quarter-panels.
    Corrected the font case of the 'Extended Life Anti-freeze' text on the trunk from lowercase to uppercase.
    Completely overhauled the pit crew to match the few shots I could find of it. <Not visible on render>
    + some other minor fixes to the car.


    #88:
    [​IMG]

    Some of the fixes include the following:
    Rebuild the base scheme from the ground up.
    Fixed up the USA Flags on the car to work with the minor warp areas that affect decals that normally go beyond the hood and onto the fenders.
    Fixed some problems all instance of the 'UPS' text to better match the correct font (including warp fixes on the quarter-panels.).
    Brand new custom made car numbers.
    Corrected the font for the 'www' & '.com' text on the rear-end (and yes, the UPS logo part is indeed suppose to be off-center from the 'Ford' logo).
    Brand new custom made 'Mr. Peanut' decal for the B-Pillar (yeah, a lot of work went into this one just trying to find good enough reference pictures for that 'small' decal, because of the 'Official NASCAR' part, lol).
    Fixed all associate sponsor placement in front of the rear wheels, including color corrections.
    Added missing white arrow jack marker on both sides.
    Corrected Dale Jarrett's signature to the correct one for 2001 (custom made).
    Created a brand new custom made pit crew for the car instead of using the 'default' one that came in NR2003 for the #88. <Not visible on render>

    Enjoy and if you see anything wrong, please don't hesitate to let me know so I can correct it on any of the cars I've shown off in this thread. ;)

    What can I say, it's something that I wanted to always finish, no matter how long it would take. Wish I would have never had that massive painter block back in the day. Plus it doesn't help that RL prevents spending as much time as I would like to on this as well.
