These are pictures of my 1969 Pontiac GTO mild custom. I built it from a vintage (1982) Monogram GTO Judge kit and used the engine, 5-speed transmission, wheels and tires from the Revell/Monogram 1991 Pontiac Firebird Formula.

It features a mild de-chroming (including the rear bumper) and molded front and rear bumpers. I used Duplicolor white primer, Testors one-coat purple-licious color coat and Duplicolor clear. I polished it with 3200, 4000, 6000, 8000 and 12000 pads. I used Novus #'s 3, 2 and 1 polish. As an experiment, I applied Turtle Wax ICE detail treatment. The interior is painted with Krylon Short Shots Iris color covered with a coat of Krylon Matte clear. I used Bare Metal Foil and paint to detail the interior.

Enjoy!

That is one fine looking GTO, Steve!  Very cleanly done.  The finish is beautiful, nice color choice.

You can tell you put work into the paint, looks deep. I'd like to see some more shots of the molded bumpers, cool idea!

Very nice. I have one in my stash. I'm waiting for the perfect 1/24 scale engine to reveal itself before I start it.
