Hemi Powered Impala - Iron-Man

Okay so while working on the engine for my impala AWB/Gasser, I stumbled on to a color combination that gave me a theme idea for the car. I will be slow working on this one, but here are a couple pics.

Most of the parts are being snagged from one of my new kits, here is a shot of my most recent purchases.

That's going to be one wild ride. Great colors you painted it.

Thanks for the kind words guys. Like I said, the theme was accidental. I had painted the engine block red, and while piecing everything together, I ended up with a couple parts (the oil pan and the carbs) While I was looking at it before I put the scoop on, I noticed the shape and colors really reminded me of the iron man suit. So I ran with it.

I do have to redo the paint, when I went to pull the masking, it ripped some of the paint up and off.

I have noticed folks talking about custom decals, is there anyone on here that can make them? I have all the logos I need, except the old style lettering for the car name.
