Looks nice, great paintwork. When I was at school I used to sit in my room in the evenings, building model cars and listening to (then current) ZZ Top's Afterburner and Recycler albums. This is a great model which brings back a different era of hotrods and customs.

Very nice! What did you use to tone down the shine on the rims?

Looks good and the way it was meant to be built.  I remember seeing the real one in Indy one time with the ZZ-Top girls signing autographs.

Thanks guys!

Very nice! What did you use to tone down the shine on the rims?

Time.  I did nothing to the rims, so I surmise that time has faded the chrome a bit.  Then again, they could have been that way when I first built the kit back in the mid '80s.  I don't remember...time has a funny way of doing that...   :D
