Here’s another one I just finished, this is the early Monogram 1955 Chevy , when I got this kit the windshield post was broken and after trying to repair it  a few times I finally just cut it and glued the windshield to the custom bubble top and re made a new windshield post allowing me to be able to chop the top, adding most of the kit supplied custom parts ,shaving all the chrome and giving the car the stance I wanted , it was ready for primer and paint, candy green mixed with candy teal and sprinkle with a rainbow flake, and topped with a 2 K clear coat, all this over a silver metal flake base, pearl white and candy teal interior, I didn’t like the way you could look down though the bubble and see the stock rear seat so I made a rear cover, all in all it was a fun fast build of a vintage kit ,complete build about a week, hope you enjoy.

Great looking kustom. Nice smooth body mods all flow together. The Bubble Tops were all the rage. I like the rear seat Tannu cover and the bucket seats. Nice fine flake paint.

Really cool! Love the color! I just got one of these first issue 55's on ebay and the guy packed it poorly so the windshield broke on mine too. Luckily, I was able to repair it.
