All right, so here's my '62 impala build. I'm still touching up the paint, but I like we're it's going. Here's a pic of the body and the motor so far. Wait till you see the headers.

The area where the cylinder heads would be is orange, not red.

Intake should be orange, and you missed sanding the mold lines by the c pillares. Are you going to clear it? What colors did you use? May I suggest better lighting for pics as well. Nice start otherwise. Like the 2 tone.

I keep updated.

Sorry it has been so long. Just applied my first decals. Never done it before. I know that sounds shocking, but I've just always worked my way around them. It feels as if I have opened a new page to modeling. Thanks, and expect more too come soon.

The camera didn't focus too well, but they are there.

With this model I am going to keep the whole interior simple.
Anyway, thanks for hanging with me.

Thanks of any input,

Nice work. Some folks like the contrasted frame vs. components but I like the single color (other than the exhaust and suspension components as you have).

What really got me was how much the interior door panels lean in to fit with the dash and rear seat.
Anyway, I should wrap it up today.

Real nice progress. I would paint the brake,clutch and gas pedal black. I myself paint my gas tanks silver or leave them black. nice work...

Nice job, but it appears you have the shifter sideways, should be facing foreword.

So since all I've done lately is take pictures and work, I'm going to just throw all of my pictures on here up till the end of the build. Thanks and expect more projects soon. And yes, midnightprowler, I did end up clearing the body after I had had it on the chassis to somewhat ensure that the decals would remain for now. Without further to do...the most pictures you've ever seen together...my build..

The box will be its final resting place and I'll post one last picture of it wrapped tonight. Anyway, this is the end of this build.
Thanks for tagging along;)
