Thought I'd help put the pics in the thread since it was a really nice job here. Good work Travis.

Beautiful work Travis, great color for that car too! The vinyl top looks great, I did the same thing recently and was amazed at how easy it was to do with masking tape!

Nice job Travis, looks just about right. I have one of these, currently one the oldest models in my collection from 1963 (I was 13 years old when I built it.) Yours looks way better.
