    Thanks everyone, tips and all. This was a lot of fun for me. I'm happy with how it came out, but I could have done so much better if I had had the supplies I needed, but money is tight right now since I bought a old Chevy truck recently, so I worked with what I had lol Next I'm gonna probably start on the 70 1/2 Camaro.

    Thanks man. I had plans to use a brighter green, but when I saw this one at Hobby Lobby I figured I'd give it a shot.

    They came with the kit. Thats the first time I bought a kit with them already painted, oh and thanks. Thank you.
  4. PROJECT FINISHED!!! You can find it here. http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=101265&hl= Any critiques are welcome, and thanks guys for the help picking out an interior color. I never did 2 tone interior before.

    It's finally done. There were some things I wish I could have done better, but in any case I had a lot of fun building this. I managed to use some photoetched parts on the carb linkage, and run fuel lines down to the fuel pump. I also wired the distributor. I made my own hood pins and clips. I tried making a working flip up license plate to show the gas cap, but that didn't go so well, but it could have been worse lol. I also painted my first 2 tone interior, and made a working trunk lid with carpet and spare. The only thing i really didn't like about this kit was the grill, since they molded the headlight in with it with no seperate clear lenses. I don't have anything around here to strip chrome off, and I didn't have anything close to the color I needed to make it look right. I just had to learn to live with it. Now on to the next project!!!
  6. Got the hood mocked up with the hinges, also I found metallic sharpies work great for chrome trim. I was thinking about it last night and I'm gonna attempt to make a make the license plate work like the real ones. I'm hoping I can get a spring mechanism to close it when it's flipped down to show the gas cap. Only problem is finding a spring small enough.
  7. I remember my dad had a 69 Charger that had a similiar set up Thanks! ^__^
  8. I was thinking that myself, but I was worried it would look wierd. I think I'll give it a go though. If it looks bad I can always start over lol
  9. I'm getting there fellas lol Right now my biggest issue is interior color. It's either gonna be white or black.
  10. Thanks Bandit. i checked em out, and it gave me a pretty clear idea and where to start. I'll give it a try when it warms up today.
