I used the custom parts from the kit to build this puppy and used HOK organic green kandy over a planet green basecoat.  Then everything got covered with Nason 2 part urethane, sanded, polished and waxed.  The interior features a full length console with bucket seats in each corner.

After taking the pics I noticed the radiator hose was missing.  It's on there now.

Very nice looking '57 Chevy! The colors are not very typical, but they look great on this body anyway. Nice engine detailing too and smooth paint work. You always do great work, Jim. Just wish that the guys in the backseat have short legs. :lol:

Love how bright it is, Jim, and the interior flocking is excellent.  Another fine build.
