    nice. thanks. he has the stock rims also? love to have them but I am going to throw cragars on it. back in 77, my senior year in high school, my buddy had a 70 W30 and this cyclone spoiler was the ONLY car he could not beat. raced him more than a dozen times. so I am building this kit for my buddy to kind of poke the bear if you will.
     
    thanks for the info, great build.

    auto color library is a great site, that is where I picked the medium turquoise color for my 64 Plymouth project. I heard about the embossing powder but have way too much flocking to get rid of. I am using a duplicolor paint, it comes out kind of flat si I may be able to take advantage of that. thanks for the tip on the brushes also.

    thanks Richard, very helpful tips. the oil on the nose thing is an old bowling trick, if your thumb sticking, wipe the side of your nose. I am surprised I didn't apply this sooner. thanks.

    matching interior color to exterior color
    searched but did not find anything on this subject. I would like to know what all your secrets are for matching the interior color of a car to the exterior. do you use dulcoats, clearcoats and glossgoats? maybe rub the seats down with your finger or something else to get that "vinyl" look? I have read little blurbs in some posts, but can't find anything.
    thanks in advance,
    Tubbs

    I've been in trouble since I don't know when
    I'm in trouble now and I now somehow I'll find trouble again
    I'm a loner, but I'm never alone
    Every night I get one step closer to the danger zone

    good luck selling your house. hope everything goes smoothly. it can be a rough road sometimes. once you buy and get all the household stuff in, then it will be time to introduce the new neighbors to the cuda....hehe....
