Thank you guys. Shane, color is Maston spray paint color avaible in here Finland, maybe you got something similar there on Dupli-Color or some other company paints. In Maston color map it has code 7527, its metallic crimson red or something close to that. I painted lately Ford Galaxie with this same color: http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=49885&hl=%2Bford+%2Bgalaxie&fromsearch=1 I hope this helped :)

Wow! It's really awesome, you did an awesome job of painting. I don't know if the side decals/paint is smudged or what, but it looks awesome! It gives the car a tiny tiny little touch of weatherization, makes it look like who ever owned the car didn't just have it for show; they used it for fun!

Also, the frame+exhaust and what-not on the bottom look spectacular! Especially the gas tank-really nice build!
