Here's my '64 Mustang Pace Car.  This kit was opened and missing a few pieces and the windshield was rather scratched.  The door handles came from the spare parts bin and I had to make one of the arm rests.  I added flocking for the carpeting, and I drilled out the air cleaner snorkel.  I also added BMF and valve stems to the wheels.  The decals were printed off-register, so I had to make my own based on pics of the originals.  I got most of the fonts pretty close (note that they are different than the fonts that came in the kit).  Other than those few changes, it is box-stock.  Here she is:

Beautiful, all it need is a nice set of whitewalls and then it'll be perfect.

How in the world did you do the silver detail around the steering wheel? Very nice build.

Great model.  And the story of what it took to overcome the missing parts and bad decals makes it that much better.  Nice job.

Thanks, everyone.  I appreciate the comments.  The steering wheel was done with the tip of a fine paintbrush.
