I always assumed the parts were dipped like a metal chroming process, I didn't know they're sprayed. Either way I think it's just a BLAH_BLAH_BLAH_BLAH shoot with resin.

 

As for my avatar pic, I'll never tell! :D  (And no, it's not Phoebe Cates! B) )

Thanks! I wish all those chrome goodies were available on the aftermarket back then. Most of it wasn't that difficult to make, but the full rear fenders were a bit of a chore to make out of styrene.

I don't want to deviate too far from trucks here, but that GTO was loosely based on Bill Bolin's double-blown '70 GTO. Everyone, even the blower companies, said it couldn't be done, but he proved them wrong. Obviously it was more for show than go, but it worked. He eventually dropped it back to one blower and sold the car. Google "Bolin GTO" and check it out, there are even videos.
