Finished up my second build of the year. An old JoHan Olds. Reef Turquoise Metallic, white interior, Olds blue engine, (I didn't wire it due to the kit's lack of underhood detail), some vintage mags and redlines. Can't get enough of JoHans.

Your redlines are perfect for your build. Did they come with the kit? Nice work!!

Jim, I didn't bring that one Saturday. Don't know why, as I could have. 

 

Chris, the tires are the JoHan kit tires, with 3M vinyl adhesive redlines that work awesome. I got some from a member on here that makes them, can't remember his name at this time. I hope I can find where I wrote it down, because I'd love to get more from him.
