Paint is from Duplicolor....Its a factory GM color and cant remember the exact name of it but I think it was called cordova brown metallic...I did it over a black base coat on this one..

Thanks everyone...Been working on the interior the most right now

Very nice color, and fantastic paint job! I bet this will be great quality build once finished, since you do excellent work with every build. But those wheels just don't fit with this body at all, it needs 15" wheels with narrow white wall tires. ;)

Oh well, actually I think every single car can't have any bigger wheels than 15" (Including new Camaro, Challenger etc.), so...... :lol: .

Those wheels look great on there, especially with that great paint. I don't get the hang-up with the big wheels, traditional or not, that's not what hot rods and customs are all about. It's PERSONAL expression. As a side note, cars with 15 inch wheels ride nice and cushy, but handle like an elephant on stilts.

Again, nice job on your build.

Those wheels are from a VW bus kit my son had from Miasto I think...They was extras and I just used Pegasus tires on them
