After posting some stuff I'd finished, I thought I'd share my current project, just started this past weekend. The body was done with six coats of Tamiya TS-12 orange, and three coats of clear. I did the foil scripts prior to painting, and cleaned them off carefully with some lacquer thinner.

The interior will be white seats and panels, with woodgrain accents on the black dash and console. I'm still debating whether or not to use some black stripe decals on the hood and trunk. It won't be stock in the long run, and I am going to add a photo etched SS badges to the center of the back panel, as well as the fenders. I doubt I'll use the rally rims in the kit, so the search is on for the perfect wheels. A slight rake in the back and some fat tires, those are definitely on the menu! ;)

 Sounds like some good plans SFD. I can't say I've ever seen an orange Monte Carlo before. I believe you , if anyone, can make it look cool. Can't wait to see more. :)

Here's the body after the full monty micromesh, Micro-gloss, and with stripes added. I used decals from two different ' 69 Camaro kits. ;)

Thanks BK, Dragfreak and Erik. So far, no paint mishaps which is always nice. I got the underhood area painted black, just have to take some of the sheen off of the cowl with some flat clear. I'm having trouble deciding what wheels to use. I'd like to save the rally rims in the kit for another project, so I'm open to suggestions.

Maybe a set of torque thrusts would look good on it

It's actually too bad that Chevrolet didn't offer that from the factory. That looks good.

So, a little update on the Monte. The body is as good as done, adorned with foil and black wash along the bottom. Just needs the glass in, now.

The interior is finished as well, and I decided to snitch the column and wheel from the Revell ' 69 Nova kit. I also bought yet another ' 69 Nova kit this morning, (I have four now, three Special Edition, one Yenko) for the rally rims, and have decided to use them on my orange beast.

Hopefully, I'll have more progress to show soon.
