Thanks Tom and Atin!  With all the changes I have made, this is starting to look more like the car I have seen on TV.

I have to admit, that from all the Foose kits, this car is by far my least favorite. And I AM a Foose fan. You are doing a great job with the kit. Can’t wait to see the end result. You should take pictures of the body color under sunlight. I bet that green will pop!

Thanks Michael!  I have seen this paint in the sunshine and it is striking!  Unfortunately, I have no pictures.  I have no pictures of the other models I have used this paint on either.

I got the Foose Coronet into three coats of Tamiya TS-13 Gloss Clear.

Looking good, real good!

I, personally, am afraid of Tamiya clear. Especially around metallics. It is way too hot sometimes and I have restarted quite few paint jobs due to it. That’s why I switched to two-part clear. I know all the risks with it, but then, I also like bourbon, guns and bacon. LOL

Thank you Michael!  I don't like the complexity or the hazards of two part clears.  I prefer hobby clears.  Tamiya clears with Tamiya paints and Testors clears with Testors paint.  I find that Testors clears are hotter than Tamiya clears.  But, always use what you feel comfortable with and enjoy using it.

A mockkup to check my progress and the stance.  Lowering the front suspension made all the difference!

Love the color and great paint.  I owned a buffed silver and a copper metallic 1967 Coronet R/Ts.  Great cars, kind of sleepers compared to  the later muscle cars.
