.......Are those Pegasus Hellas? My sets don't look that good. Did you alter the finish? Bart.
Oh, BTW, very nice five-seven! l really like your unusual 2-tone combo=makes it very original.

Thanks guys. I painted the car with sherman williams auto paint. The bottom is black with the top a magenta to gold multi tone paint. The clear is hpc 15 sherman williams clear. The wheels are pegasus hellas,I painted the centers silver tamiya then took a tooth pick and lightly scraped off the silver to make the chrome edges. I am new to this posting thing but I will try to post new pics soon.Please forgive me if I do make a mistake as I had a stroke just last year and my memory and motor functions are not the best.

bruce what do you mean your motor functions aren't the best? that thing is awesome the trim lines are flawless, paint is perfect, engine spotless.
beautyful job, keep it up.
