Thanks for the nice comments guys! Yes, I'm all about saving an old kit whenever possible. I think I actually get more satisfaction from doing rebuilds than building a freshly opened kit. Especially an old out of production model.  Alan, the color on the Ranchero is House Of Kolor Kandy Organic Green over a black base. I use a lot of HOK paints on my builds, along with Kustom Shop & factory colors from Paintscratch.com. My clear coat is always HOK UC-35 Kosmic Color Urethane. I'm glad you enjoyed my past builds. I have more photos of these builds as well as older models that I can post if anyone is interested. Just let me know.

Thanks for the paint info Ron. How about more of the green Ranchero and your teal 63 Biscayne ?
