Obviously it still needs BMF etc....., but wondering if you think a few tastefully added scallops would be OK or too much?

Interior is gold/champagne

Body is Testors Auto Lacquer Artesian Turquoise Metallic.

W-170C wheels from ModelHaus.

Tires are Firestones painted by Irv Arter Jr.

I vote scallops, but maybe something in silver?

Super cool Pat , I'd lean towards white licks with BMF or de-chromed with the gold , cool wheel choice very period , what flakes did you use and can we see the back.............

John..., all I have is the Fred Cady Gold scallop sheet.

Clean lines , good stance gotta love it kinda build , maybe a little scroll work down low . I used that Cady sheet in red on my '62 ford pickup build , but ruined it by grabbing gloss coat instead of dull coat CSC'd and started over , be careful on the long decals the split kind of easy.

Pat, those scallops are dead on perfect, as are the chrome wheels. Have you given any thought to baby moons with those rims? They've always gone well together.
