Recommended Posts

Havent posted on here much and havent been building much... Got this started the other night...Its the Lindburg kit and so far a nice kit..

Paint is Duplicolor Nissan orange mist metallic...Still no clear and this was a mock up on it... Gonna try to get it this low hopefully

Gonna try to do a lot of detail on it as I can... Gotta place an order with Xtreme scale detail for some stuff

Great color choice Shane, I've got a can of that set aside for a '74 Javelin one day! If you can nail that stance, this is gonna be one wicked 442, bring it on!

Wheels are from Pegasus and I get it from Xtremescaledetail.com.

I have good luck with Duplicolor and get more for the price too... The clear I use I usually do about 5-7 cars with a can and thats using 2-3 coats on each car

Got the motor painted..Used Inca gold and a shot of DP clear..Got it wired and headers made...Was a tight fit but got em in between the rails..

Pulleys are from Parts by Parks..I polished them up.... Use the Holly carb from Futurattractions on this one too

Also painted the wheel centers light gray...It was too bright to me and this looks way better
