55 Chevy Wagon

This is a 1/18 Johnny Lightning diecast done by Ertl several years ago. It has opening hood and rear gate but not the doors. Door handles are molded on but does have some nice detail over-all.
If you're going to get serious about cutting up diecast, you need this RotoZip.

Here I have the panels cut out and hand filed to the window edges.
Time for paint removal. I like using the Mar-Hyde Tal-Strip II Aircraft Coating Remover. Note: The Klean-Strip Aircarft paint remover is not very good.
The body in primer with the rear side window post added. I also had to add a strip of styrene to the top of the interior side panels and mold to the body to fill a gap.
Interior painted and detailed. I also added plug wires to the engine.
Thanks for looking, Tom

I'm doing a 1;24 57 Sedan Delivery as a junior stock.

A coat of green paint.
Under the hood. Just some battery cables, a radiator hose and some paint detail.
Well, it took a few reloads but here is my update.

I went with the green to keep the plain Jane look. Steve, Your friends cars looks great.
The 55 my brother once had.
