Long and low R/M 59 Caddy. Inspired by Maurice's Cadillac, on Northern Exposure. Had interior and chassis painted and assembled, body painted Mocha Brown, clearcoat started to crack, got frustrated and it went into a box for a few years. Rummaging through boxes one day, thought it was too close to finished to leave it in this state. Into the Super Clean it went, which also softened the plastic on top of fins! So I decided to make it a mild custom. Rounded top of fins. Shaved, nosed and decked(I think). Late 90's Dodge orange basecoat w/ fade highlights and HoK candy Tangerine, BMF'd then clearcoated. Slammers Blackforce wheels and tires.

That looks really great! My favorite thing about it? The subtle two tone on the upholstery!

AWESOME JOB GOOD COLOR and GREAT INTERIOR!!! A fyi for those into caddies.. the small section between headlight bezel and fender is body color.For some reason Revell molded the front fenders short. It does not hurt your car though!! Paul Posted Image

That is gorgeous, Rob. That's one of my favorite colors, and there's plenty of sheet styrene to show it off! It turned out very cool, and the interior looks great. Nice!
