50' Olds

Recommended Posts

This is a very nice kit to build, but with the kit wheels / tyres, even after lowering, it sat way too high, so i pulled it apart

and did a wheel sway to Pegasus DZ's, now it sits RIGHT!!  :)

Paint is all Auto Acrylics, and the basis of it all is Ford Viper Purple, ( pics look too blue), with some white faeds.

There are 25 different color stripes on the roof..

Wow - that's the nicest, most unusual "lowrider" I've ever seen, probably because I don't ever remember seeing a '50 Olds done up that way! And I can't believe it's acrylics - Auto Air, I take it? What did you use as your clear coat? It's very shiny... certainly as good as any lacquer I've seen!

Thanks heaps guys, i am extremely happy with this one. :)

Frank, the colors are duplicolor through the air brush, and clear coat is Valspar Automotive Acrylic clear, and polished with AUTO GLYM   Resin Polish .    

THANKS. :)

Dale, this Olds looks great.  I love the color.  I'm also working on one of these at the moment and am hoping it comes out looking as cool as yours does.

I'm not much for customs or those type of "lowrider" style wheels, but nobody can say anything negative about that paint!!

Fabulous!!
