    Beautiful and well done!

    How about maroon? This is a great color for this car. Had a chance to buy a maroon 246 or a Porsche 914-6. I bought the Porsche. Silver with black interior. The 246 was always in need of something. While the Porsche was more reliable. But today I would take the 246 just because of those body lines. And I can afford the repairs. The cars were at Ferrari of Los Gatos. I believe the 246 and the p4 are the best looking Ferrari’s ever. But that is my humble opinion. Great choice of cars. The blue is very sexy also. I believe you can paint this car any color and it would be great. Just like putting different color clothes on Megan Fox. All would look great because of those body lines.

    Hello. Going to make a simple distributor. This engine is going to be very stock. Not going to get carried away like my Nova.

    Old car fan you cannot buff molotow out. It will dull out. But there is another chrome finish that I heard about and will let you know the results on that.

    Thank you kollefornia kid and bisc63. Your right bisc63, they did not fit very well at all. My buddy and I had to spend a lot of time fitting his doors, hood and trunk. I’m restoring a 65 mustang and boy they do not fit very well. My friend Kevin is a restoration guy. I’m at the production end of bodywork. We took several weeks after work to get things to fit with rewelding, solder and lead. But when it’s done it’s worth it. Here is the only major modification that I have to do. Make the rotors smaller to fit the American wheels.

    Thank you ismaelg and Superbird. Putting the motor together. Very stock. 265 with a automatic. Not really exciting but as a everyday driver this is what my buddy used. Had 4 wheel discs so it stopped well. When he got more money he was going to put a hi po small block with a turbo 400. But sold it before he did that. Still a nice car. Had around 225 hp. Had a 10 bolt rear. Not fast but reliable. A cool cruiser. Here is the start of the motor.

    Thank you Casey and Oldcarfan. I have not tried to polish it out. I will find out.

    Thank you Slotto and Dragonhawk. Here is a before pic of the mold line on the chrome bumper .After sanding , priming then paint with molotow.
  13. Just stunning. Love corvettes but a nomad corvette is out of the park!

    Tail lamps are in. Monogram did a good job here. I cut the chrome parts off. I used molotow with a brush to hide the sprue cuts. Cannot say enough about this product.
  15. Revell 1/25 55 Chevy

    Thank all of you for the great comments. My friend Mark gave me some molotow and now I can do the cars I like. 50s and 60s cars! It is a game changer. Not expensive and better than all the others. The smell is not bad. . No grief from the wife. Here is a pic of the front. Put lights in. This monogram kit is a sleeper of a kit. Thanks again.
