Revell ‘86 Monte Carlo SS built as an ‘84

So I fairly recently discovered Rays decals out of the Netherlands, and when I found that he had a set for an ‘83 / ‘84 Monte Carlo SS, I had to order a set.  Using the latest release of Revell’s ‘86 MC SS kit, I got to work.  Ordered the factory correct ‘84 Medium Dark Metallic Blue paint in a spray can from paintscratch.com, and sourced the wheels and exterior mirrors from the AMT El Camino SS kit.  The interior is Tamiya Navy Blue from a rattle can.  Finished it up a couple of months ago, and am very pleased with the results!

I also just looked at your Buick build and being a previous owner of a '86 Mont SS let me say I appreciate your attention on this build as well.

Those are from the MCG set.  I usually hold down the parts I need with tweezers, and use a fresh xacto blade to cut them free.
