  1. Not to beat a dead horse (LOL) I did some looking up about the underneath color and discovered that many or most were undercoated with black tar. UGH!!😡
  2. Yep, when I did my last 57 using that kit I decided on the red oxide only because it seemed some of the pro restorations had it that way. I'm pretty sure I looked at a website that is dedicated to the Tri-5 Chevies and that was what it said. BUT, like you and what I said earlier their are definately variations. And again you are doing an absolutely beautiful job and your bare metal foil prowess is outstanding.
  3. Geoff, As a huge '57 BelAir (and former owner of one as well as my Dad being an owner of 2) fan you have nailed this build both in terms of quality of workmenship and accuracy. I do have to tell you though, the under chassis sheetmetal on most true restorations I've seen are red oxide though I have seen some painted body color or black. Please don't take this as a criticism, just pointing it out . At any rate, yep that paticular model has some madening issues. Looking forward to the completion, beautiful job!!!!!πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘
  4. Both very nice but even tho I'm also a Pontiac guy but the W-30 Cutlass looks great and would be my 1:1 choice.πŸ‘
  5. It is complete, still sealed in bags. Gonna have a little fun with hotrodding a Beetle!!
  6. Yep, just after asking that thought came to mind but I was thinking tubing. As we speak I'm working on the springs. Thanks for answering
  7. I'm late looking at this cool thread. Karl, I'm trying to make the front suspension like yours on this Stude. You said you scratch built (which I'm trying to do for my 57 Cevvy Gasser) and I wonder if you can tell mw how you did the ends of the leaf springs??
  8. YAY!!!!! Finally had favorable painting weather Sunday to topcoat the body and other body parts on the TA. Paint was really smooth but after curing out looks grainy. Smooth sanding and polishing to follow.
  9. Went into Hobby Lobby to pick up some Evergreen rod and saw this torn up box on the shelf so I asked how much they'd discount it. Got it for $10.75. Future street rod !!
  10. WOW!! Some great model subjects there....that "ZR-1" Vette is awesome, and yeah, cool 56 and 57.πŸ‘πŸ‘
  11. Nice.......I bought as far as I can remember the first 260Z delivered in New Orleans back in the day. I guess now I need to find a Z model. Cool!!
  12. Super cool rarity!! Great color combo and wheel choiceπŸ‘πŸ‘
