New tires on a recently aquired project?
That's most excellent!!
Great job ... but just one question: However did those wheels and tires escape the ravages of time?
= That's praise, Jim.
Love the way it looks. The weathering is great, and the way it is photographed makes it look real, like an photo you'd see of a real one for sale on Craigslist or in an Auto Swapper.

Very fine and convincing model. Also like that license plate. Would that be about the car?

Welcome to the forum and Wow!. A really great job on weathering. On your Samba, try heating with a hair dryer carefully and gradually work it back into shape. It'll be tougher with all the windows but if your careful it will work. Just don't overheat, a little at a time. Good luck!
