    55 Chevy Custom
    I got this new 55 chevy kit and started at once . The plan is a soft custom . Low suspension some crome , just a cruiser fore the night and a ride to the hop

    I started to clean upp all splices and washed the car in water and soap.

    I used the stock axle but put on the blocks so i get a low suspension . in front i used the one with discs but i modified it so no discs , this will be an old shcool so no discs fore me .

    primer on all stuff here is the body . the chassie is satin black with some parts in gun metal (pics will come)

    Painted in Tamiya mica blue and a volvo silversand metallic . ´Looks like a lot of gold in the pic but it´s a kind of light silver ,just a tooch of gold . tyres are some aftermarket stuff and caddilac somberos in aluminium
