This is the completed build on my 1965 Pontiac Bonneville. After looking at the box art of the custom version, I knew I’d have to give it a go. This has been one of my best paint jobs with an airbrush so far. This gold is left over from when my grandpa still painted cars. Turns out enamel holds up fine after 40 years. As always I convert my builds to slot cars so they don’t sit on a shelf for long. Overall I’m pretty happy with it.

 

Thanks,

I agree, that's a great looking paint job and I like the color, it reminds me of a '67 El Camino I owned years ago.  The custom body parts blend well with the body lines. So, this is going tobe a slot car?

I appreciate all of the kind comments I’ve received on this build. Unfortunately I did not take a picture of the interior before installing it but tried my best to take a few more. I’ll have to take a video of it running around the track soon and post it as well.
