1962 Thunderbird - AMT

Recommended Posts

Been working on this, on and off, for about 6 months. Was not looking to the foil work. Finally decided about a month ago to tackle it. That  fine trim portion along the fenders and door was challenging, But pleased with the result. Interior bucket to body required body trimming as well and the rear bumper the same. Onto the details. Interior: Duplicolor Champagne Pearl with Duplicolor White inserts. Exterior: Duplicolor Champagne Pearl and Duplicolor clear and buffed out. Engine: Ford reed and added plug wires and an MAD distributor.

Excellent work on the paint and foil, also the interior details.  This is possibly my favorite T-bird body style.

Beautiful job and the color looks great. Great job on the foil as well. Did you spray from the can or decant? I think the soft top in black would go quite well.

My daughter gave me that model for Christmas of 2013, and that started me building again. That model was also my first foil job. Yours in a really nice build.

I sprayed the car directly from the can.
