The hinged Hood, Doors, and Trunk help to show all of the extra details on the interior and engine. I'd like to see more of the Photo Etched Grill, being such a larger part of the front end I'll bet it adds a lot to the look. Perfect Wheels for this style build.

Bomb-style cars are cool! I really like the artillery wheels....... Do you make those?

Thanks. The artilleries are resin casts from @classic_scale on Instagram. I believe the orginals were from the 1st issue 36 Ford kit.

Excellent low rider!  Is the headliner a Mexican blanket?

Thanks, yeah it is. Wanted to add that element in there, but not to take away from the otherwise mild demeanor. So the headliner was a perfect spot.
