The only actual 1:24 model of a '66 GTO.

The friend who removed the tampos would be me! Welcome aboard, Randy! In answer to Mark, I used non-acetone nail polish remover on Q-Tips, and for broader areas, used a cotton makeup cleansing pad (a pack of these can be bought for about a buck or so in your local supermarket or pharmacy. Very handy). You have to use a few to keep the tampo ink from smearing around, but it takes the graphics off quickly. After removing, I wiped it down with a wet cloth, and then buffed the paint with Novus 2 on a cotton cloth, to remove any residue from the paint. One thing to be careful of is to make sure the polish remover does NOT come into contact with any graphics you'd like to keep, such as the GTO lettering. Any contact risks smearing or removing that too.

I have a bunch of pictures of mine, but I can't post them at the moment because I'm having difficulty accessing my personal website, and can't log in to upload my pics to my diecast page. If I am able to correct it soon, I'll post shots. I really wish we could upload pictures here directly.

Best,
Rich

Thanks. This site is a great resource for the diecast community. I've used a LOT of the tips in that section. Recognize a lot of cars and names as well.

I would assume like most cars, some non acetone fingernail polish remover, cotton swabs, paper towels, and some time and effort would remove them. It needs some street treads on rear too to be completely street legal. I like the idea of the non marked car, but I like the drag version too. Plus I have a 66 plastic kit for a regular street car.
Mark S Posted - 09/02/2020 : 17:20:45
So, how hard would it be to remove the graphics? Would love a 66 in my collection.

Welcome to JSS Randy.

This is a great replica. And well-priced in many cases. Another friend has removed the tampos so he has a solid gold version - looks very nice without the graphics. I think I bought mine after seeing yours elsewhere?

Mark, Icons/University of Racing. I only paid $20 AND free shipping for this on Ebay.
Mark S Posted - 09/02/2020 : 07:23:16
Cool, who made this one?
Skylark Posted - 09/01/2020 : 18:07:06
I really like the rear window design on this era of GM mid-size cars.
tcam Posted - 09/01/2020 : 12:06:53
I know to bad no one else ever made one. Nice pics Geno.
Billy Collins Posted - 09/01/2020 : 11:07:40
Very cool / outstanding pics.

I forgot this came out in 1:24.
jimmcdonald Posted - 09/01/2020 : 09:52:39
Nice.
Evan M Posted - 09/01/2020 : 08:57:09
Nice pics, I've never seen that one before.
JCarnutz Posted - 09/01/2020 : 08:37:28
That looks good. I have thought about it a couple of times.
Myron Posted - 09/01/2020 : 08:07:25
What a sweet model.
