    AMT made a few 66 Nova kits and also some  65's,  But if you look at the kit tail lights and compare them to the pics my66s55 posted it looks to be a 65. Also the body lines are different

    I was going by the lights in the front bumper but found this so you are most likely correct

    You might take a look at Duplicolor Dark Canyon Red , it may be darker than you want  (not my build, just a google pic)
    I used it for the dash and package tray and Krylon Banner Red for the rest Satin clear used on top

    Here is a spec sheet for them. With some modifications the look like they might be doable.Top height is a bit too tall but could be shortened. Not sure what to do about the large base diameter?

    I have been using the Autoair Colors paint and you can buy the Pearl in individual color or mix the pearl with the transparent colors'
    On my current build that is pearl white with pearl blue panels. I found the pearl white (Createx) has more of  champagne color so I used the Ceramcoat pearl over Duplicolor gloss white to get the color I want. For the blue I just add the pearl to transparent blue. The have other paint effects like color shift and hi-lit interference that you should be able to mix in for different effects .

    I do as Foxer does with aluminum tubing. I use aluminum tube for various scratch building projects so I have it around anyway.

    As said shaking and smooth surface is the key.

    Bridgetown closed down and is now a Pot shop. (This was one of my favorite stores)
    Speaking of SABA of which I am also a member. If your in town on the second Sunday of the month you could drop in on a meeting.

    Stay away from downtown Portland, it's weird 
  13. Jon Haigwood added a post in a topic Masking Tape Help   

    I have been fighting with the paint on this Hemi Hydro boat for awhile. Trying to get some good edges on the blue sections. After several drownings in the "Pond". I ended up with using some old pinstripe tape that I have had laying around for some years.
    I start with Autoair Pearl White and then a coat of intercoat  clear (Autoair 4030) , lay down the pinstripe tape and then another light coat of 4030. Then sprayed the Blue Pearl (also Autoair) and another light coat of 4030. Now after it dries (and I touch up where some blue slipped thru) it will be cleared then polished.
    The pinstripe tape leaves nice clean edges and no residue.
