That color combo looks sharp! One thing I can warn you about this kit is that the rear wheels won't center in the fenderwells if you place the trailing arm pegs into the holes in the frame or the one I built didn't. I had the same problem with the frontend,but that could have been my doing since I had converted it to a '67 and had swapped frontends.

Roger, that could be the case if you used the Clip from the 67 SS. The station wagons and El Camino's used a slightly shorter (door to Wheel opening) fender than the rest of the Chevelle lineup. If Revell's cars are true to scale that very well could have been your issue...

Now that the big project at work is over and I’m using up some vacation days, I am catching up on the 66 El Camino Pro-Touring.  I have a week and a half to complete this for the club project.  Hopefully, I’ll get it done.
