Very slick. One of my favorite GMs and my favorite GM color. Any remarks or reviews you would offer on the kit itself? It’s on my wishlist. A positive word on it may convince me to pull the trigger and buy it sooner.

Very clean looking build. I like the standard 442 appearance you chose. Smooth paint and a timeless color.

Very nice 69!  I like the correct air cleaner in the correct color.  Did you have to do anything to the ride height, my 69's always look a little low in back when assembled.

And a special thanks for NOT putting on that incorrect pair of trunk stripes that AMT felt necessary to put on the decal sheet.   I wish they'd put the correct trunk stripe on the sheet (attached).

Great kit but the ride height needs to be corrected to a more realistic height. Decal sheet should have included the W-30 air cleaner decal.

Thanks Dan. Yes the ride height needs to be raised and the wheels need to be centered within the wheel openings.
