1955 Bel Air

11 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

Hi guys. I just finished my 55 Bel Air. I am quite happy with the way it turned out. There are little flaws here and there but that is all part of getting back into shape. It was the 1st time I ever did spark plug wires. I know now for next time the little tricks. Thanks for looking and am open for feedback good or pleasently constructive. post-10505-0-20186700-1360261625_thumb.j post-10505-0-16245100-1360261664_thumb.j post-10505-0-33392600-1360261702_thumb.jpost-10505-0-03279000-1360261726_thumb.j

Okay you asked for it! It looks great, love the colors you used, spark plug wires look good, just a little more foil or chrome would help. One thing often over looked on a '55 is the trim piece on front fender and door. Also the piece above side window glass on a Bel Air should be chrome. There you go, looks good in all other respects. Love a nice '55. :wub:

Yep... beautiful model. I love the color combo.... but it needs a bunch of BMF to really finish it off.

Yeah.... I realized that I forgot to do the chrome around the windows. Mind is in another dimension I guess.

Thanks guys. The backdrop picture I took over 25 years ago in Alberta on Highway 11 just off the Jasper Highway. Onto the next one! A 1978 Chevy Step Side Shortbox P/U! Mike

I can't get into the wheels, but the rest of it is very, very nice.

That photo used for your background is super.
