    The guy that gave me this kit did one very much like you describe in Marina Blue with grey centered Torque Thrusts.  It looks great and surprisingly believable as a "stockish" street car.

    It's what can happen when you don't have any plan or idea what it will look like from one day to the next.  Although it is starting to gel.

    Full coverage of the metallic green and I decided it did not need to be brighter to go with the black graphics I came up with.


    The tires from the kit were salvageable.

    If I were to do it again, I'd start with this:

    I decided on a green, but not the Testor’s Jade Green I had been leaning towards. 
    I test shot this Tamiya TS-20 over an olive green and didn’t like the coarse look of the metallic.  Over yellow it looked much finer.  It still needs another couple coats and I might tweak the shade to be a bit louder after I see how it looks with full coverage.

    Thanks guys.
    I think the rims were from the Revell AlterNomad.  I got one loose rim years ago and cast copies, this is the first project I found that I thought they would work on.

    I cast a bunch of wheels in a couple styles and offsets for a friend and I decided on the Daisy’s from those for this project.  They were cast modularly (each of these are two pieces in the photo) and these would normally make 15 x 8s, but I will add another rim section to the back and make them 15 x 10s.

    I lowered the ride height almost 1/8 of an inch and I made lenses for the mirrors.  The original Atlantic wheels were hogged out to accept some Centerline 5 spokes.  The rest is just a repaint to give it a different personality.

    Thanks guys.
    I decided to take a cue from Bugatti and made some body accents in a French Blue.

    Thanks guys, I decided to add one more "unique" detail.
    My near constant companion in the truck was Rocky, a 108 pound Golden Lab.   A great dog that knew how to hog a bench seat.  I modified a Hood Hounds figure and painted it to match.

    This was a factory built promo version of the Lindberg Atlantic kit that had been disassembled and partially painted about a dozen years ago.  Then shelved and forgotten. 
    Since it won’t be a replica of the one-of-a-kind Atlantic, I decided to rename it and give it a little different look.
     
    I cemented on and faired in the nose to remove that seam across it.  I scribed a new hood line and made some adjustments around the grilles to match since the hood lines used to run into them. 
    It had been originally painted with Testors enamels, so I sanded it smooth, primed it and then put down a base of lacquer gray for a solid base for the lacquer main color.
    Here it is after prep and bodywork, ready for primer/undercoat.


    I chose Tamiya TS-40 Metallic Black for the color.


    I machined the centers out of the Atlantic wheels to accept a set of Centerlines I cast copies of.

    You know...,  I have the AMT '63 and the Revell '67 handy.  Too bad I didn't I didn't see the question before I did this to it:

    Wheels and tires were changed, I custom made all the decals since the kit came with stickers.
