Random disconnected NR2003 thoughts

So I've rummaged through various set ideas, and ultimately decided to overhaul an old project from last year.

In mid 2023, I wanted to do a retro carset backdating the then-current years driver roster to 2001/2002. I got most of the way done with the Primary schemes and did a handful of alternates, but ended up never finishing it, and with the new season in full swing, have decided to start fresh for 2024 with a complete overhaul, including new paint schemes from the ground up.

So with that being said, I've so far finalized the primary paint scheme/driver list for each of the 36 Charter organizations. Most were fairly easy translations, some required a bit of research, and Kaulig's #16 and Rick Ware's #15 were a right PITA since all of their sponsors in Cup so far didn't exist back then (with the exception of Riley Herbst, but I felt like Grala, who is making the bulk of the starts fits better in the ride) Heck I'm can't even find when Jacob Companies was founded, so that might have to be nixed anyways.

So here is the current preliminary roster. One of the big changes from last years roster to this years is the addition of Oldsmobile, Plymouth, and Mercury to the grid with some of the sports smaller teams.

I would love to see what those plymouths and oldsmobiles look like. Will you be using the Alero or something like the intrigue for the Olds?

I will be using an Intrigue template I cooked up a while ago. Here is a example of a car done up for the set using it

Nice! That looks slick. I've always used the Alero myself but I dig the intrigue's looks as well.
May I ask if it could be possible to get that template perchance?
