Quick Update:

 

Painted the engine Indian White.

I think it complements the body color pretty well.

Got some other parts painted as well. Metallic silver, gloss black and flat black.

*BONUS*

 

I decided to look at this kit I got for next to nothing at a yard sale a while back. It's a virtual cornucopia of useless and missing parts.

There's parts from a few different kits in it, possibly the same kit from different releases. The engine is not from this kit, the suspension is broken and or missing, original tires are missing, etc. It's a mess and just beggin' to be rat rodded.

 

I think the frame had been painted with a sharpie. As soon as I can get an engine and suspension parts together I'll give this box of junk a new life and a fresh coat of primer.

I love the color. Make the interir chocolate brown. I think it will compliment the exterior quite well and it will keep it somewhat unusual.

 

 

Just a thought....how about a cream kinda colour on the upholstery?

 

Great idea guys, and I wish I would have thought of that. Unfortunately I already started one upholstery panel with black... All is not lost though, black interior is not unheard of, lol.

Wayne's suggestion sounds excellent!

Yes it does. I'm concerned about the black interior though...

Looking good so far!

 

Last time I did a rod in a similar color I used Krylon "Almond" for the engine. It provided just enough change to make the engine stand out.

Hey, now that's not a bad idea. How do you think that would look with a black interior?
