Yo Brett - why a SHINY :(  body?  I'd make it all SHINY :) :) :) , but that's me.  Good looking build though.

Thanks guys, really appreciate the nice comments.

was wondering when you were gonna raise that Jim :lol:.The next one will be shiny. Haven't got the kit yet but wheels and colors have been chosen.

Nice looking chop! Looks great with the paint on. Just an FYI, technically, the chop makes it a full custom, rather than simply "mild."

thanks Bill, aint nothing compared to your cuda though , painted the headliner, installed glass, visors int mirror etc etc last night and installed floor/chassis for the last time. Couple things to note if you're gonna lower one of these... The frame rail behind/above the diff has to be modified to clear the pumpkin , the floor plate gets wider at final fitting and you're sure the bodys gonna snap before it fits in place and thirdly the front brakes push the wheels out hard against the body but removing anything means taking the chassis out again, so I'll live with it this time cause I aint fitting that again. Oh also you have to aling the exhaust manifolds exactly or the keep breaking off and I at least cant fit them while the engines in place, that said

Thanks Anne. If you mean the writing on the rocker covers, they're a decal that comes in the kit. Block, heads any of the green stuff was airbrushed, the orangey was rattle canned cause I was too lazy to decant it (if I 'd been thinking ahead I could have done them the same time I did the roof, but at that stage I hadn't decided on anythiung but body color).Carbs, exhaust manifolds and all other bolt on parts were done by brush. If you look at any of my other builds you'll see I do a lot of detail painting with a brush. hope this helps a bit. This builds under glass now.
