    I double checked and the wheels did come from a TD paddy Wagon kit .  The newer ones are gold but the chrome ones can still be found .

    Thanks for the comments everyone !  
       I originally built this back around 1970 and I'm not positive but I think the wheels are from the Tom Daniel Paddy Wagon .They look much better after being sprayed with some Alcad Chrome !

    '58 Impala Rebuild
    I had planned for this to be a complete restoration but after finding lots of missing parts and lacking the motivation to do the job I decided it would be an experiment in $0 cost model building . No aftermarket bits and pieces , no detailing goodies , even the paint was leftover and sitting on my shelf .  The only extra work I did was to remove the hardtop and use an "up top" from a Monogram '59 Impala .
    It's not a "Top Shelf" but it looks good in my cabinet ! 

    Here's how it looked after being boxed up for 45 years !

    Very very nicely done !  It looks exactly the way I remember my neighbors new Camaro back in '67 !

    Really nice update of a classic Monogram kit , the paint and the wheels and tires are perfect for it !  And you're right , those simple kits can be lots of fun !

    Absolutely gorgeous !  Nicest '61 I've seen and you're right about the wheels , they really are the finishing touch !

    First thing I noticed after admiring the overall look , but I've owned a couple of the real things so it was pretty obvious to me . Actually I think it looks fine with the rails painted instead of foiled .

    Don't know how I missed this one , beautiful work James !  Definitely the nicest custom I've seen .
    Your paint and BMF look flawless . . . just curious why you didn't foil the bed rails ?

    Copy and pasting the IMG code works but the "Insert Other Media" still just spins .  It was working when the site first changed and then Gregg switched to another format and everything quit working .
    It doesn't really matter as long as there's at least one way to post photos , right ?

    I copied the img code from Photobucket and then right click & paste .  Works fine .
    Now I'll try Fotki . . .

    Yep , the only way it will work is to copy and paste the image .
    But Photobucket definitely is working for me !
