I have to wonder about a glass smooth, shiny, elaborate custom paint job on the roof of an otherwise faded and worn car. And the wheels seem to be sticking way out of the tires...  :blink:

 

BTW... your interior photo is backwards... unless this is a rare right-hand drive Impala!  ^_^

Interesting save. That paneled roof is terrific! Dig those stretched tires too.

It's actually a fairly common trend in the lead sled world to have the roof finished and the car unfinished. I think it looks great! Very nice weathering on the paint. I do agree with Harry about the tires though. Love the rims though, seems like they just need some wide whites on them.

Never heard of such a thing.

its actually very common. in most cases it would be a flat a paint or primer job on the body .as far as the wheels that's how they look on a 1:1 tire and wheel combo . they mount a 5.2 tire usually on a 7-7.5" rim which gives it a lot protruding lip. i actually mount the reverse wheels on their 5.20 style wheel . I spoke to joe at Pegasus about their 5.20 tire having the option of a wider white wall, they do have them for the crossbars and I managed to snag a few sets mounted on the soveriegns . thanks for all comments.

They were, but it's 2014 now :)

Looks cool - nice work on the model.

thanks for all compliments !!! yeah some members just seem to be a lil I wouldn't say harsh but maybe mislead even when I haven't seen anything they've done. but anywho as far as the interior its just the app I used the pic is flipped to make the layout more appealing but a right hand drive on a lowrider is very common in japan which has an extensive community.

Very sharp work on this one - reminds me of some of the ones I've seen on the H.A.M.B. with the same treatment. One minor suggestion - you need a little patina/wear on top of the door from the driver's elbow! ;)

Edit: Do you have a rear view shot of it?

I CAN DIG IT!!

Harry, if you haven't, you should check out Gary Seeds work... He paints real cars patterns mostly 60s and 70s style lowriders, but he did a 1:1 53 Bel Air I believe... It was patina but the roof was patterned very beautiful work with mexican blankets over the front and rear seats... If I can find the pic, I'll post it up ...

I agree the rims need to be sunken in more so they fit better on the tires.... Otherwise this is killer!
