Tim - thanks. I tested 3 different reds and picked this one based on pics I took of the car, which I hear has been sold to a collector. Chris - I am looking forward to getting more done too. With all the rain we're getting now, I won't be doing much painting though. John - Thanks for looking. With help from Tim and you on this, I can't go wrong.
A little update - I have the frame painted, most of the engine painted, the front lower plate that was attached to the seat painted aluminum and installed, the rear shelf painted aluminum, the interior tin needs a little more work and then a final primer coat. http://s1311.photobucket.com/user/56ChevKRy/media/USA-1 Tribute car model/DSCF0164_zpsdqovsbdk.jpg.html http://s1311.photobucket.com/user/56ChevKRy/media/USA-1 Tribute car model/DSCF0158_zpsoyiszskc.jpg.html Obviously one photo is before the painting. I just ordered a different rear diff from VCG Resins which I hope will more closely match the 1:1 rear. Thanks for looking . Well, I was hoping the images would be there instead of links.
