1965 Pontiac GP- my 1st vinyl roof

That looks really nice. Like others have said, I'm not so sure about the wheels, but the overall execution is great. 1965-'66 Pontiacs are one of the few cars that I think look good lowered.
Skip- try one of the places stateside that custom-mix paint. As long as they can get the code from someplace, they'll be able to make it. As a side-thought, Model Master Anthricite Gray is about the same shade, perhaps a hair darker. Tamiya also makes a paint in their acrylic bottle line called Gun Metal (X10) that's also pretty close to that.

Real nice job on that one. I don't even mind the modern wheels...in this case, they work.
On the pic thing, this is what I've found I need to do. With the fotki image up, right-click on it and copy url. Hit the "image" button here and paste the url. For whatever reason, it's the only way I can get it to display them correctly.

Great looking GP. Everything on it is spot on. Do you remember what the name of the Fujimi wheels are? They are perfect on it.
I'm glad at least some of you like the wheels. I wanted to go for something that might be seen at SEMA, or something like that..
They are Fujimi's Hayashi Street. I think they're about 15"

Beautiful looking "Land Yacht" Guy! Nice work on the roof, and the wheels, and stance give it a bit of a "resto-mod" look.
