    Paint job is sheer genius!

    You guys are cracking me up!
    I remember my late Grandfather, who came of age in the late teens and 1920's, complaining that "all cars look the same today, not like when I was a young man" while I was oohing and awwing over the new '64s in Motor Trend (oh, man, that Galaxie 500XL!) in the fall of '63.
    Seems every generation whines about the same things, among them, "all cars look the same nowadays." File that next to "Oh, these kids today and their crazy _____ (music, clothes, hair, etc.), don't have any_____ (respect, ambition, etc., etc.") along with the all-encompassing (and always inaccurate) "Life was so much simpler back then," and all variations thereof.
    Of course that's coming from a geezer whose standard of comparison in car design is, "Is it as memorably beautiful as a '57 Dodge Custom Royal Lancer?" Now that I'm just shy of the same age as my Granddad was when he made the eternal "all cars..." complaint, I've finally learned to identify some of his beloved cars from the teens and '20s, but it gives me a headache because, well, "they all look the same," just as it does trying to sort out all the various SUVs, crossovers, and four-door "coupes" of today.

    Great work, Andy! Looking forward to crisp photos from your new camera.
    Oh, and don't tell anybody else, but did you notice how the top edge of the fins on the Del Rio curve up for the first inch and a quarter or so. They should be straight. It's the same on the Custom Tudor but is less noticeable because of the trim.

    One of my favorite cars in a very attractive color combo! Good work, Rich!
    I've got this kit in my stash. Any pitfalls I need to watch out for?

    Nice color!  One vote for the original Chrysler wire wheels and WWs! Those wire wheels are THE look for mid-'50s Mopars!

    Very impressive workmanship!

    Looks great, Tom!
    Did you have to modify the front inner wheel wells to lower the front?

    Yeah, man, that's way better! Nice work, Andy.

    So nice! Well done photos, too!
  11. John Goschke added a post in a topic '59 Ford Sunliner Mild Custom! Interior Done! 8/11/15   

    Somehow I thought this was going to done sooner than this, but anyway, I finally managed to finish the Sunliner's interior, wrestling with Essential Tremor frequently while working. Going to have to change my building style to get the Fun vs. Frustration Quotient back in proportion.
    The interior on this mild custom is stock except for chrome garnish moldings. Mods to the kit part includes side panels from Revell Skyliner. Revell Skyliner steering wheel on AMT '57 Ford column with scratch shifter and signal lever. Heater, radio, and clock from Revell Skyliner notched into AMT dash. Window cranks replaced with the scratch power window switches. Stretched sprue lock knobs.

    The Starliner is looking great! Very nice color and I really like the wheels and tires you've chosen!
    With you and Steve G. building these my Starliner is getting restless shut up in its box!

    Very sharp, Steve! Great color combo and the perfect stance. I also like the improvements you made with the radiator support and the taillights and will be stealing those ideas when I get back on mine someday!

    Great restoration! Really like the color combo and the wheel/tire choice. Nice detailing under the hood, too.
    Since you asked, my only suggestion would be to add some spacers, or something, to widen the front track width a bit. The wheels look like they're tucked too far inside the wheel well.

    Yes, helps a lot! Thanks!
