The color reminds me of this one, '62 Bel Air Bubbletop with 414 Cid. Stroker engine (Stroked from 348 BBC). ...Located in Finland!

Very nice build! How did you do the trim in the back around the recess for the tail lights?
I used narrow masking tape which I lay down first - the distance to edge of the trunk lid and the rear panel was eyeballed. It's 3M tape which is thicker than Tamiya tape. Then I applied the BMF and cut the foil using the ridge/shoulder of the masking tape as a guide.
What did you use for the seatbelts?
Tamiya masking tape cut to the width which fits the GM Seat belt hardware made by Model Car Garage.

That's a pretty cool idea with the tape. I have this kit and I'm gonna try that out. Did you have any problems with the body being warped at all? The roof section on mine seemed to be pushed over to one side slightly.
No problems with warping. I have another one in my stash and there is no warping either.

Actually, the last kit I built BEFORE taking a hiatus was AMTs '62.
I like the color and detailing.
