Calling this one,..Done


AMT/Ertl kit. '99 release, lowered a bit more than box stock. although it was "lowered" a bit, out of the box




I liked the all white front end and bumpers,..White is Alclad white filler primer (tough stuff)



Made up the hea, vent controls, and put in a steering wheel from the spare parts collection



Swapped out the 6 cylinder for a 409 out of the '62 Impala. Added a new, bigger master cylinder, and a windshield squirts jug,..



Macgyver'd in the hood supports to hold the hood open.

This one went well until,..you guessed it, final assembly, I swear I dry fitted this whole thing at least 20 times, but in the end I ground out the bottom of the windshield, ground off the top back lip of the bench seat, ground off one bottom edge of the rad,..etc. All while fully painted OMG Whew....it's done.

Thanks for looking in

Q,C,+C's welcome

Cheers

What process did you do for the blue? I'm intrigued by it. Beautiful color and interesting finish.

I mixed 99% alcohol with Craft Smart, ICY BLUE acrylic poster paint, then mixed in approx. 5 drops of the Createx Pearl blue. Shot thru my air brush at about 15-20 p.s.i.

The finish is quite flat, but all of the mettalics in the paint gives it a glow.
