Build this out of box, tried a new paint.  Testor's Aztek acrylics.  Colors are white pearl over copper pearl.  This was my first time spraying pearl so it was a learning experience to say the least.  Body spent some time in the purple pond......  Copper is a little brighter and has more pop than I can get in a photo.

Very nice clean looking build. I like your color choice. I hope to have mine finished in a few days with a very similar color combination.

Man that is super nice!

I sure wish I was able to pick one up at HL for 6.95.

Thanks for the kind words, everyone.  I think the next build will be the 66 Chevy Panel Delivery using the same base kit with the Jimmy Flintstone panel body.  I'm contemplating paint choices, will have to do some test sprays to see if my idea will work.

I'm finding that you have to add about 10% of their thinner and keep the pressure up.  I always use a screen in the paint bottle which helps lower the clumping factor.
