     Both ways look great on your build BUT.!!!  My brain is 75% in for no rake.!!!

    Hi no it's not a Perry's resin I have one of them. The Perry's is nice and has good detail the one in the photo does not even come close to a Perry's I had to add the trim to the grill his does not come with it and I had to send the chrome out to be plated. The one in this photo has way more detail and sharper detail to the chrome.

     Any chance we can just get the dam thing out I'm 64 and want to be around to build a couple of them.!!!!! There models they will never be perfect that's up to the model builder that's why we are MODEL BULIDERS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!....The problem is 90% of the young builders can't time away from there video games and there computers to really set and build something anymore they want it all handed to them problem free.!!!!!

     Hi I want to add one thing to this I have got a lot of items from Perry's a few years ago and it was all very good quality I was happy with all of it it's to bad he let the site good bad that being said I just for the hell of it checked back with the site last year and you guys are right it has not been updated the last date is 2008 but be very careful if you do go to the site it has been hacked when I hit on a couple of photos my McAfee lit up like a Christmas tree.

    Hi MCW makes the 68 and 69 2 door Biscayne in resin I have both and they are very nice it's a small change to make a Belair out of them the 68 takes the AMT 67 chevy kit as the doner and the 69 takes the AMT 70 chevy kit as the doner.

    The kit from Motor city is a great kit it's a repop from AMT and it looks like a plastic kit I have 2 of them all you need is the AMT 66 to finish it and when you order it you can ask Jeff to have the parts chromed he will do that for you.
