I just ordered a tin of C1 Metalizer. Will report once it arrived, but could someone please explain the different effects of the various base coats? I always thought a black basecoat is required, but some of you gents seem to have come up with better ideas.
Some people once did a '41, which leaves even less room for variants. They haven't regretted it. We need the kit manufacturers catching up on post war American Milestone Cars. And the '56 Connie would be a prime candidate. So would be the '57 Eldorado Brougham, the Motorama Show Cars and other notable standout cars. There are cars, that are interesting, despite they never went around in circles, or along a 400 metre long straight, believe it, or not.
The cars were made from 1963 - 1970 (Series 1) and 1970 - 1976 (Series 2). The V8 (actually a modified version of the Buick 215 aluminium engine) was available from 1970 - the end. Funnily enough, the V8 became available before the introduction of the Series 2, so a few 1970 Series 1 cars came with it.
