Just finished this Revell Ford F100 Street Rod. Some of the things I added that were a first for me was the Wood Bed and the Coil springs on the rear shock absorbers. I removed the stock gas tank from the frame and relocated Mustang gas tank between the frame rails in the rear. I also removed the chrome from the front and rear bumpers to do some clean up work to the front and ended up painting them the same color as the body. This was the first time I used Lacquer paint and was real happy with the results.

I applied foil to the emblems and the tailgate and then detailed the emblems with a red sharpie

 

Thanks for the compliments everyone, it was a big help being able to read other peoples tips and techniques on this website

Nothing short of perfection, it looks beautiful. Especially the paint, and the foil, the detail work, and the engine......I am gonna stop here, I think I made my point
