This will be a must for me. I had a 67 with a 71 grill in it.

If it's accurate to the real one, I hope the make extra beds, the originals only last a few years,lol

 

 

A must for me too! I have a '72 That I'll definitely want to replicate

Like others have said, the colors look good but the texture is a bit heavy. The rust holes down low look good, but they are a little large overall; I'm a big fan of making lots of small holes first, then opening a few up into larger ones.

My secret is to thin the panel from behind with a Dremel cutoff disc, then I slowly run over the area with a ball-shaped milling bit with a light behind it until the material just starts to blister and break through. A small dental-style pick tool works great for popping those body 'blisters' and modding them into bigger holes. Here's my in-progress '55 Chevy stakebed truck with the small holes coming through:

I really like this, how did you accomplish the larger dent in the door though?

Sweet, I like your color taste! And the decal sheets in Revell Muscle's 1966 GTO have redwall decals, if you want to go that way.
