Cool fade job! I love the shine that green flake is picking up on the tops of the fenders and roof. This is a very cleanly assembled for 15 years out of the game, nice work! 

Fun, isn't it? :D

I also think you got the Winfield paint treatment correct. Very clean fit and finish thru out. Fifteen years, I guess it's just like ridding a Bicycle, you just jump right back on and ride. Look forward to seeing more of your builds.

Thankyou!!! Yep just like riding a bicycle! Next on the bench is an AMT 1960 ford Starliner which i plan to do a mild kustom with some sort of 60s Watson paint job.
