Thanks, Ray.   What looks like black spots are actually drink holders.

Thanks, Mike.  I cut the roof off and replaced it with a Carson type roof from the parts bin.

It's actually HOK wild cherry with some pearl flakes added to the clearcoat, Bob.

I started this one before our club build, Neal.  The plan was to see what the kit all about.  The club build will be very different from my normal builds.

looks good, Jim.

 

The club build will be very different from my normal builds.

So does that mean that it won't be SHINY!?

HAHAHAHAHA!!! I couldn't resist

nice job Jim,

 

Are there any kits left for the club build? If so could you bring one with you to Jax next weekend? I'll pick it up at the show.

 

Thanks, Robert

Thanks, Bill, Fatkidd, and Robert.

 

The next Olds will also be SHINY, Fatkidd.

 

Robert - yes there are Olds kits left.  They're $17.00 and exact change would be appreciated.  I'll bring your '50 ford too.

Looking good, Jim. Awesome job on the Carson top. The engine is really cool. I'm using those valve covers in a '55 Chevy sedan, they came out really well.

Thank you, Bart.  My casted Moroso valve covers aren't too bad.
