    Yes, it's molded in black & the top is removable.
    I know that the top is a little different design than the '60, but I wonder if the windshield frame & boot from the '60 would be the same.
    There's a unbuilt, in the box one on eBay right now for $90.00 if you're interested

    This '61 Plymouth was done this way.
    It was molded in the yellow & then just polished out with a polishing kit.

    Keep your eyes peeled for the "Junior Craftsman" '59 Bill.
    There seem to be quite a few of them around.
    I got a builder pretty cheap last year that way.
    Although, I'm not sure if they did a "Junior Craftsman" convertible or not.
    Mine's a hardtop but they're just like the '60.
    Same kit with different top treatments.
    Might be able to use the '60 parts on the '59 body.

    The '53 Chevy has never been one of my favorite cars, but when you see one this nicely done, it's hard to argue that it's not beautiful!
    Nice work Tulio!

    I have a pretty nice '60 Olds I might be interested in trading Bill.

    Same here.
    I used to get a lot more involved years ago, but I found it really began to become work after a while.
    The things I really enjoy about a build are things like paint & interior & exterior detailing.
    All of the engine & chassis stuff never really interested me much.
    I do enjoy a little engine detailing on occasion, if it's an unusual engine configuration, but I can only stay interested in so many big block Chevies before it becomes really boring.
    I guess you could say I'm more of an "automotive design" kind of guy than a mechanical groupie, so exterior & interior detailing is where I like to focus most of my attention.

    If your foil is fresh & the surface that you're applying it to is smooth & glossy, the foil should be very difficult to remove in one piece.
    I burnish my foil down very well.
    That not only makes the foil very shiney, it also makes it stick well.

    Sometimes it can be very useful in preventing very bad people from taking over the world.
    Being from England, I'm sure you remember a quite nasty group of individuals called the Nazis that needed a little intervention.

    Yup, I knew Modelhaus did the Polara.
    I've seen a few built-ups & it seems to be a pretty nice kit.

    Thanks Bill!
    Well, I am getting closer, but it will have to wait for another week while I'm on vacation.
    I'm shooting for finishing it yet this month......but you never can tell.

    Just a brush & paint Gene.
    & you might be surprised to see the size of the brush I use!
    I've never had good luck with those little "one bristle wonders".
    I just can't seem to get the paint to flow, or to flow where I want it to.
    I always wind up with a mess with a small brush.
    A larger brush will hold more paint so you don't have to start & stop all of the time.

    Well of course!
    You know it's very difficult to tell the difference between Puerto Rico & Illinois!
