Thanks Dave.. I got a Tom Mcewen 57 chvy funny car kit last week off ebay, and decals are good condition. So I've got the decals covered I'm trying to come up with the colors for the paint.... I like the two tone paint like this...

Killer build Ty. Looks great now and it'll look even better with some color on it, whatever you decide, I'm sure it'll be a knock out.

That blue and white 2 tone would look great. Your detailing is first rate. Can't wait to see it in paint.

The blue and white isn't a tri five original color. I know you have done many in black. My suggestion would be to go with that aqua/teal color and white like an original 57. IMHO The blue just doesn't fit the classic car well.
