While airbrushing, something got in the paint so it sneezed on the car. It will be fixed and I will make sure to take step by step photos.

The roof pattern is a decal from Franklin Ink. More to come as I feel motivated. Thanks.

Good to see James and Antonio joining in.

Antonio that 57 is looks excellent so far.

James that 55 is going to look nice.
Here is one I built from that exact same kit as Lowrider last year.

Thanks guys; it's good to see the lowriders getting some love since so many people "hate" them. B) Since the timeline for this build is so lengthy, I'll build another one as well once I figure out what it's gonna be. :)
