This is a resin body that I got in a trade recently. The paint is Tamiya Gunmetal with Tamiya TS 20 Metallic Green then topped with Tamiya X 25 Clear Green. The chrome has three light coats of Tamiya Smoke sprayed over it. Thinking of something like an LS7 for power.

Aww yeah, this is gonna be a cool build!

I love the wheels, and the effect that the Tamiya smoke gives over the bumpers is really cool - storing that tip away for the future!

Yeah, I like the look of the darker chrome. I'll definitely be using it again.

Really like where this is going Tom. That green is sweet. I did a curb side ‘66 in Bahama blue with the tinted chrome and think it looks great. I’ll be following. 
Cheers, Steve

Thanks Fellas. I wasn't sure at first on the color because it looked like too much but I think with the chrome it has grown on me.

The green looks pretty kewl Tom and the stance is killer.  Still trying to get the paint worked out on my 66.

Thanks for all of the kind responses guys! This one has gotten held up.trying to find an engine for it. I am also debating with myself on ideas for customizing the interior. I think I have the interior planned out now. As soon as I find the kit I'm looking for to rob an engine out of I'll be moving forward.
