Are those whitewalls the ones that Don specifically tooled up for the kit, or are those one of his standard offerings?

Those look good for this. I might add them to my rep-stock.

A 15/16 circle template is the perfect size for painting super wide whites

Looking forward to seeing more on this one Bryan. Ed is making some custom pleated interiors for this kit.

since this car has that HUGE apron at the front of the hood, i figured i would add a little more detail to it.......i really enjoy adding stuff like this.

Posted Image

i drilled out the hole for the hood latch, then opened the square hole that the hood release rod runs through, and finally made a anew rod from some 28 gauge wire.....

im gonna add some bolt detail to it as well......

im still trying to think of some ideas for this build....if you guys have any, throw `em at me........

i think its going to be light blue, with a white top.

cheers
bryan

Olds' & GM had a sort of light salmon color that was almost an orange (very light though) when it faded, I can remember well seeing a few Chevy's in this with a white top, but I only saw one coupe in this color, & it belonged to my late cousin. He later had the coupe painted in a lime green flake with an emerald green fog around the trim & body lines. Yes, it was in the '60's.

Yeah, it seems as though most of us have at least a dozen or so of the small barrel ball point pins that don't seem to work, & they make great "Swamp Coolers". along with Detail Masters (or equivalent) speaker covers for the inlet vent.
