Tim this is looking good and I love how you cut out the scoops. I am building a replica of a '68 my dad had when I was a kid. I filled the hole in on the hood and I painted mine Burgundy metallic. Keep this going...I will always have a soft spot for the '68's.

Very nice body work with the GTO! It's always nice to see when someone has enough patience to do bodywork like that. I know that I get usually fed up with it, and then the model might stay on the stash for a long time before it gets back on the bench.

Maybe I would paint those wheels like this, they would look more Old School.
