Looks great Andre! I know you were worried about the tail lights, but I think they look very convincing! Did you have fun building it? 3rd gen f-bodies are what kept me in the hobby throughout the 80`s.

What is the correct colour for the locks?. I see some in black andsome in silver fomr pictured from the web

 

I`ve had 6 3rd gens so far, and all of them had semi-gloss black locks. You mean the door locks on the outside of the door right?

 

Looking forward to seeing it finished! I always liked these in forrest green.  B)

Looking great Andre!! Nice detail on that dash!

 

I built this kit years ago,i think the front end sits a little high and the front fascia needs a little fiddling to look right.but otherwise its a nice kit,another member on here Hawk 312 I believe built this same kit in Jamaica yellow and it looked stunning ,if you use the search button you might be able to find it.

 

 

Here is my version. As you can see, I had some trouble fitting the front nose on it. Just a heads up for you. I`ll also include a pic of the tailights you were asking about, but it looks like you have that pretty much under control.

Lots of interesting stuff here.

 

Disclaimer: I have no idea what I am doing.

I always try to take pictures outdoors on sunny days. Cloudy or indoor pics always seem to make the color seem "off." Whatever the highest resolution is available on the camera is what I set it to. When I copy the files to the computer, i resize them down to about 30-50%.

My camera is a really cheap Sony Cybershot, which I think was the cheapest that Best Buy had at the time. I may have paid $89 for it. I have always used really cheap cameras. In fact, and I`m not sure if Harry wants me to tell you this, but the Big Scale Beauty cover car in my sig was shot with a cheapo Kodak camera that I am pretty sure was under $100 as well. 

Anyway, here is the result:
