Second Chance Redlines

Monthly Newsletter - April 2023

Welcome to our Monthly Newsletter!

Hello hobby friends! Here's the Second Chance Redlines Newsletter. Spring is here and outside activities will be taking up a lot of our time. We will be on Vacation the first week of May, many of our parts and supplies will be limited during this time. All decals will be available during this period.

In order to pass savings onto customers, we are moving away from the eBay platform. We will soon only offer Decals on eBay. eBay is an expensive platform to sell low cost items. We currently offer more items on the website. The website is 10%-15% less expensive than eBay and with our coupon codes and loyalty discounts, it can be as much as 35% less. We ship at or below cost on the website, eBay shipping prices have to be inflated to capture the true shipping cost for us. We would rather pass the savings on to you than pay them in eBay fees.

It's the same store we're just asking, use a different door.

New Ventures

Here's a cool little project we've been involved with. We created some custom decals for Mac's Customs from the Dungeon Diecast Syndicate that were given away at the grand opening of the House of Cars in Myrtle Beach.

These are pictures shared by our customers. Send yours in and we will share them. Enjoy!

Featured Build

This month we feature a build by Scott Turner. He requested this decal to be made and knocked it out of the park with his build.

Our main focus is on 1/64 scale decals, first there is huge community of little car hobbiest, and second they are just easier to manage than larger scale decals. We do make some other scale decals, mostly 1/24 scale, and we do get request for other scales. When Mac's Customs asked us to scale the Chick Magnet decal to 10th scale for an RC car it was a challenge. But we were up for the challenge and boy did it come out right.

The Chick Magnet is a real car that belongs to Leslie Horne and races on the current SEGA circuit. Leslie is the reigning champ of the 2022 SEGA A/G class and set a new SEGA A/G record.

Tip of the Month

Recently we added some new paint to match the solid colors of Hot Wheels released in 1973. We named these paints, Retro-Flame 73. Unlike the Retro-Flame Candy Colors, these paints require the use of hardener. If you do not use the hardener, the paint will not dry properly. We also added a silver basecoat paint that can be used as an undercoat for our Candy Colors.
