Trying to get all 5 of the DOT cars done, only have four more to go, I remember doing the City Chevy one several times, first when I was kid, then a few years ago, now as they say, 3rd time is the charm, thats the one I am working on now

I am not sure what you are going to use for the chassis color, but can I suggest one to you, its SEM paint, number 61113, perfect match for the chassis gray used during that time frame

The very first model I ever built was the city chevy. Thanks for the tip on paint

Nice detail work so far on the chassis. I can't wait to see what you can do to the body.
