One of my favorite times in kustom history is probably the Watson era, mid 60's coupes, a little shaving, healthy slam, and candy paint is a winning combo in my opinion. Heres my take on a 64 Impala. Shaved everything except the mohawk chrome strips on the hood and trunk, deleted wing windows, egg crate grill, rear roll pan with tube insert. Added some Bellflower tips and a simple panel paint job.

Thanks guys! Means alot. Lots of firsts with this kit. First time using the AB, first time with 2 part clear (waited too long to sand and was left with slight orange peel and micro trash..ughh), first full foil, first channel job, etc. Being my 5th serious build, it has its mistakes, and some things Id do different, but hey, thats what the next kit is for.

Thanks Glenn and Sam. To be honest Id probably use a different taillight and tube the front grill for a little continuity. Are Edsel grills odd as taillights?!? LOL
Thanks for the props everyone, this site is very motivating!

Oh mamma...that is gorgeous! I really love the front and rear end treatment and how you laid it out so nicely. I also like what you said, "One of my favorite times in kustom history is probably the Watson era, mid 60's coupes, a little shaving, healthy slam, and candy paint is a winning combo in my opinion." I would have to agree and say this is the perfect example of that. Very nice job, well executed.
