Another great build James, color combo is killer. I just have one question, what exactly do the stacks on the back deck behind the back window do? I'm guessing it has something to do with the sterio but to be honest I've never really seen anything like it Neil I joined this site. I also really like your skirt and spike treatment, makes me want to do it to my merc I'm building. What do you use for the chrome spikes? Killer build, sorry for all the questions.

The skirt spears are half round styrene..Evergreen 240.... .040" sanded to a point ..glued in place..then BMF.

Glad you like the El Camino.

Nice build James! The color is perfect and the interior is awesome. I love the pipe speakers you used for it. You can never go wrong with them.
