    Thx. Stan good idea as i am just jumping out of the box and wanting to be able to chop and match up chassis in my builds to come . i also want to work on the engine compartment on some upcoming builds . get rid of stock fender wells and scratch build tube upper frame rails and put 1 of those aftermarket Gibson Engines in.

    Thank you Joe looking forward to build many more Pro Street and some Pro Stock kits done my way !!!!
    I love old muscle cars and like them even better when they are all beefed up, Blown and tubbed out !!

    yes the decals are from the kit with a few coats of clear laquer on top !!
    I usually do not build to look like the box i build it to look more like something i would drive if i had the money to build the real thing !!

    Thank you John !! i did this on a very tight budget but i am very interested in taking my builds to the next level by purchasing some detail products to do better wiring and plumbing !! i used Testors paint on this one because of the particular shade of blue i was after. I really don't care for the model spray paints they are very thick in my opinion. I typically use automotive spray paint with many coats of clear laquer then hand rub. My painting process involves my refrigerator and a hairdryer since it is very humid in Florida i must control my paint temperature during the drying process. I also plan to build a few select kits that do not come pro street and turn them into pro street cars as that is my favorite style old pro street muscle cars !!!

    Shane i am on that facebook page !!
