I finally got some color on the El Camino this morning !  I'll let it sit over the weekend before spraying some clear and starting the BMF .

 Is it red enough for you ?

I've been debating if I should modify the rear bumper ,  so after I sprayed the taillight panel I stuck the side trim and rear bumper on to see what it looks like .

 Everything looks good ,  but the bumper is going to bug me if I don't fix it !

 Most people don't realize the difference between the Impala bumper and the El Camino bumper ,  but once you know it you see it every time you look .

 Here's a photo showing the difference around the license plate area .

Modifying the bumper was a lot easier than I expected ! 

 Here it is .

I spent the last couple of evenings doing the BMF .  This is my fifth build using it and I'm getting the hang of it finally !  There is one piece I need to redo again but otherwise it's done .  Now it's time to start putting everything together !
