Cosmo, you've done a great job!
Thanks everyone for the comments. Sorry I`ve been out of this for a while. Just finished school and started working which got me kinda busy.
Here are some updates, I decided to go with the metallic copper color and no vinyl top to give it a low-priced, low trim level curbside model.
I love it!!! The concept is great!!!!!

Thanks everyone for the replies, I just finished this project. Please check this page:
Wow I'm sure that looks particularly impressive in person,.how long did it take to "damage" the sheet metal?
Thanks, I was using thick aluminum foil (from the kitchen baking supply). I covered the foil to the original plastic part and carefully shaped it and took it off. And then I just twisted the foil to the desired look of damage and I used epoxy on the back side to secure the shape of the foil. The whole process took me like 15 minutes or could be less
How much arm-twisting would it take for you to do another one and send it off to D.R.A.G. to cast it?
Great work.How much arm-twisting would it take for you to do another one and send it off to D.R.A.G. to cast it?Charlie Larkin
Thank you Charlie. Haha I`ll put it in my calendar, next one should be an accurate "glasshouse" style 4-door sedan with the correct Caprice full trim.
How did you scribe those door lines so nicely?
I used pencil to draw the outline on the primer body first, ant then I just used X-acto knife to slightly do some strokes along the pencil line (free hand). After a couple of strokes for the depth I pushed harder to achieve the desired depth for the door lines. I think it just takes some patience and a fresh blade
I'll have to try that.... Mine always come out too jagged
