Here are some more photos of the 63 Vette Roadster that I finished in 2012. This is the AMT Prestige version & I painted it with GM Lemans blue paint. Basically box stock. Hope you enjoy.

Thanks for the great comments guys! I feel this is one of my best paint jobs so far. At least my favorite color.

Hi,

 

Really nice build - not just a good paintwork itself but good preparation as well.  I've started working on an AMT '63 vette and there's a fair amount of work to get a clean foundation for the paint.  The blue with the white works really well.

 

Cheers,

 

Jim
