I haven't done too much yet, but rear slicks are from that Monogram kit. I had to make some room for Centerline wheels, so I removed some material from them, to make wheels fit. Those Centerline wheels are casted by Marko Piironen, and they are really great quality. Front tires are from my Parts Box, those what came with the kit, didn't just look good.
I've also done some sanding for that engine, and it's ready for primering now. Maybe I can primer it later today, but let's see that later. This kit is great quality, so I hope this will turn out good.

Hey Dave - I'm working on some..., including the double-drilled rears. If you want to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org, I'll send you a pic or two.

I don't doubt you a bit, I do remember them being very nice.
Bart, those are Fentons in the 59 Camino

Didn't know about the wheels, thanks for correcting my mistake! They were sold as Centerlines, but luckily I know, what they are really. What Dave said on his first post, that center cap will stay there, since those wheels are resin and I don't wan't to do too big modifications to them. But "drill the alternate bolt pattern into the wheels between the lug nuts" is something, what I should try. So I hope I can post some progress pictures soon, stay tuned.

Speaking of rims, this Torino kit is to have the best looking Cragars SS rims. Niko, can you post a picture of them please? I'd like to see if they're as sharp as I've heard.
Yeah, sure. Here you go:
I have to say, that those Cragar wheels look really good to me. Don't know yet, where I'm going to use them but maybe in some Street Car.

Re those Cragar SS's in the Torino kit, they are wrong for the Ford, yes they are nice but those are in fact for the small bolt circle "A" body platform Chryslers .. Duster, Dart, Cuda, Valint and, re the Cuda, that is pre 1970 before it switch to the "E" body platform. So if you use those Cragars in the Torino kit on anything other than what I mentioned, it would be wrong.
