T Bird chassis? I have one sitting along with a Monte Carlo. I'm trying to finish the Buicks first.

Awesome work! Are those the AMT wheels out of the T-Bird kit?

I’m not understanding what you mean. There is aluminum around the back edge of the bumper in the fender that also goes across the frt under the headlights and grille.ir are you meaning how the bumper don’t fit quite right?

right in front of the of the union 76 decal it looks like there's a part of the blue paint missing. Maybe my eyes arent seeing it correctly.

Well , there you go. Your model looks exactly like the real car.  The ref picture proves it.  Sometimes when you make a model  look too realistic, people think you made a mistake on the model and you have to end up defending yourself with real car photos. I've been through that before.

Tim, that is truly fantastic! The work you did giving it a little more "shoulder" in the quarters look's tremendous. Best one of these I've seen and one of those builds that I can stare at and enjoy waay to long!
