Thank you. Here is another teaser. Isnt it nice that you have to order 2 model kits just to get bumbers for your current build? <_<:D

Impala001-vi759.jpg

besides AMT`s Buick Connie kit, im using front bumber from Revell Impala SS California Wheels kit since it suits better on lowrider than one what came with special edition kit.... ;)
