both custom vettes look great. im going with the road warrior/rat rod look. i painted the body krylon matte or semi gloss black, the wheels will be the same color and it will be topped off with red interior. going for another quick build if i can. oh and the guy i bought this off is at the cleveland ohio autorama every year. he sells alot of stuff and i think models max at 15 and diecast at 25 dollars. he s a huge dale earnheart fan so the have #3 kits and diecasts.0913121512.jpg0913121507a.jpg0913121506.jpg

I STARTED THE ENGINE YESTERDAY ITS GOLD. NO IDEA WHY I CHOSE GOLD FOR THE ENGINE BUT I DID. IM PRETTY SURE EVEN THOUGH THE KRYLON CAN SAID MATTE BLACK THAT ITS CLOSER TO GLOSS. THIS IS ONLY THE SECOND MODEL IVE USED KRYLON ON, ALL THE OTHERS WERE TESTORS EXCLUDING A DIECASFT FORD TRUCK PAINTED TRACTOR SUPPLY COMPANY INTERNATIONAL RED FOR TRACTORS.

I like the street machine approach, did mine that way. It's got green-purple flip-flop paint, 97 vette seats, small block power and sits too low to drive over bumps!

glue it in after you put the body on frame. theres little tabs that stick out of the inner fenders thats where the radiator will sit against.
