I like it. I like the interior color and it sits nice. What rims are those?

Pegasus, I stripped the chrome and painted them semi gloss black.

Looks pretty good to me. I assume the blue painted window moldings are on purpose? I'd paint that washer bottle translucent white.

 

And this isn't your fault, but I've always wondered what those two things that are molded onto the top of the passenger-side fender well that begin and end in midair are supposed to be?  :lol:

The moldings where to be bmf, but due to weak body seems and poor planning on my part (too lazy to scribe the body panels in advance) . I got tired of repainting the car...... 



Thank you to everyone for the comments

I loved the look of the car. Looks really mean. I built the same kit some time ago, and swaped a Chevy six under the hood.

Best I can figure is that they're meant to resemble heater hoses, despite where they begin and end.  One of the first mods I made to my '67 was sanding these off.  .
