Got this from Pat Redmond as a built up he received in a large collection.stripped the body, then had to sand the body down, the paint that was on it actually etched the plastic. So here it is primed, this will be sort of a tribute to Carrol Shelby. I won't show the paint or disclose that part of it till I'm ready to assemble everything.

I liked the black with the red hash marks on the fender but I really like this color better.

It looks like a bare aluminum body now to me. I also liked the black with red slash marks. Nice restoration! I love the 289 version of this car.

That shade of blue is awesome. The build looks really sweet.

Love the blue Nick.  Great paint job.  What paint did you use?  I've got a glue bomb one of these sitting in a plastic baggy..... may have to get it out!

Thanks Guys the paint color is Duplicolor Blue Mist, and it was one of the older smaller cans. Sometimes our second thoughts are better than our first.
