I finished this build last week just in time for the Jaxcon show - and I lost the pics. 

 

I cut the door post off so it would look like a hardtop.  Front & rear rolled pans; frenched taillights; '62 Chrysler headlights (that I now cast); kit engine dressed up a little with a sorta '56 Caddy air filter that I also cast and a Fatkidd distributor.  I make those little easel signs for every model.  It reminds me of what's been done.

 

So here's the pics -

Looking good Jim as always. These cars made a great looking custom and one of my favorite AMT models. Love your front end.  :)

Thanks, Ron.  The front end is somewhat different.  I'm casting some '50 Olds headlight buckets so I can use them on the Hudson I'm building.

Thank you, Ray and Bob.  The signs look cool at a show - especially when I use the mirrors and spotlights.  Almost like a 1:1 show car.

Very nice, Jim. Love the canted quads and the air cleaner is killer! I may have to get one of those at the next meeting.

Another excellent build Jim, you always have personal touches on your builds and use body color on your chassis. Really sharp...
