This is the old MPC Spirit Of '57, isn't it? Great work on it, i like the primered front end, that's a nice touch!

Thanks,guys. Actually, Mike, it's the Rockin' Roller issue of that 57. Not a great kit, but not so bad, either. And I figure this guy just got the fiberglass front clip, wanted to get it on there, but just hasnt been able to paint it yet. Thanks for looking...

So why does the unpainted fiberglass front end have chrome trim on it?  :blink:

Cause he had the trim and wanted it on there,  but doesnt have the paint yet. The other chrome, like the hood spears, will go on later.
