Great detailing job. Event to the fuel and brake lines. From seeing that, i think i'm gonna start adding brake lines to. lol Looks MUCH better that painted raised lines.

Good job.

I could care less about why the large type, but I am curious about why the colors are stated as beige and gold. Either way, it's a real beauty.

Sierra Gold is a Dark Copper color, the photos probably make it look more red than it really is. Like you said it's very well done !

The underside looks great. How did you get the "weathered" effect?
