This will be my first post on this forum. I thought I'd show the 69 Pontiac GP model SJ that I finished over Christmas vacation. I sprayed it with 96 Cadillac Medium Montana blue with a white vinyl top & navy blue & white interior. I used the factory Rally I wheels from the kit. It's basically built box stock. Hope you enjoy.

Welp, ya sure do know how ta introduce yourself! THAT is a VERY nice kit! Didja save it, or were you lucky enough to be able to start with an unbuilt annual? I got two of these rascals, but they both need the front turn signals of all things! GREAT job on a GREAT model!

very nice, I used to own a 71 model J with a 400 engine, car was a great sleeper in the days i had it in the 90's.

 Is this an old kit or is it readily available?

The '69-'72 Grand Prix had a distinctive look that your build shows off nicely.

This is very nice!! Sounds like you started with an unbuilt kit. I have a built one to restore and I wish it had those wheels instead of the wheel covers. This is just beautiful.

Wow, thank you for all the great comments! You've made me feel right at home. This was an unbuilt annual kit that I picked up off of Ebay a while back. It was 100% complete right down to the skiing equipment which I didn't use. It went together very easily with exception of the windshield whch had a bad tire burn in it. I used the Micro Mesh polishing kit to sand out the burn & then McGuires clear plastic polish to polish the glass & I had it looking near perfect when one final rub cracked the windshield in half. I used some thin sheet acetate to make a new windshield as well as the rear window as I broke it when I tried to cut it loose from the front glass. Just wasn't my day.
