  1. The Del Rio was pearl painted to look like a 50's custom with flat tail lights. I had those lights on both of the "57's I owned years ago.

    I stand corrected! Thanks for letting me know rather than just ignoring my mistake, it's the only way to learn.

  2. El Paso

    Out in the West Texas town of El Paso
    I fell in love with a Mexican girl
    Nighttime would find me in Rosa's cantina
    Music would play and Felina would whirl

    One of the greatest cowboy songs of all time penned by none other than Marty Robbins. I knew him as a musician long before I knew he drove cars. At first I thought it must be another Marty Robbins that raced ūüėā. Now that's a talented gentleman!

  3. Hi James, you may want to look into getting Micro Set and Micro Sol. Micro Set prepares surfaces for decals for better adhesion and Micro Sol softens the decals to conform to irregular surfaces. They can help on difficult decals. I started using them after having trouble like yours and have had good results. The rest of your work is looking great.

  4. I meant to say it before and I got interrupted and forgot. Your interior looks very good. Did you brush paint the seats? What I can see of the dashboard looks great too. I have one of these in the works and had a blast doing the dash. I can't wait to do another.

  5. All are very pretty. You do great detail work notably on the undercarriages. I'll have to go against the crowd and take the El Camino and Ranchero as my faves. One problem though your Del Rio is in for a ticket without those taillights.
