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.

Antonio that 57 looks incredible!
Nice and shiney Luke, never noticed how the front end on those look like a HD Holden.

Keep up the great work.
I suppose I can start cleaning up the paint and such tonight on mine. Had to give it time to cure.

started off by doing any/all body work, then primered with Tamiya white primer.
Followed up with Model Master 1451 Aluminum Plate Metalizer paint
After that was done, i proceeded to start painting the green, lightest color first of course.
I put more emphasis on the roof because i want that area to be predominately that color, separating itself from the rest of the body but in the same color spectrum.
you can tell the sides are a little lighter.
while i was waiting for the body to cure i started messing around with the interior. somebody gave me a couple bucket seats. i'll be using that for the rear seat bench area and plan on making some sort of design around them so it's not just two bucket seats sitting on a bench seat.
i'm removing the separating wall between the rear seat and the trunk so you can see through it. at least that's what i THINK i want to do. once my mind kicks in gear i'm sure i'll decide on what i want to do with that. if i turn those back seats into a bench seat (bench bucket seat!) then i'll make a rear wall area with an amp rack and speakers. this also shows that the top of the wheel wells will be able to handle some interior foam or felt and flow well with the rest of the interior.
test fitting shows the trunk fitting great with the foam on the floor.
