Just finished up this evening, (still need clear headlight lens), pretty basic underneath. Dark grey primer and dull clear, the roof is Tamiya lime green with a clear orange top coat. And a little black lace. The seats are a pattern printed on tissue paper as seen here on MCM. Wheels/tires are from a Impala kit 62/60. Still need a little touch up and clean'n. Thanks for looking....

Thank you for the kind words. Here is a roof shot as requested. I think I could have cleaned it up a little better before clearing, but we all live and learn.

It makes a cool shelf model in my cabinet.

Very cool build J2. Watching Dr. Cranky videos has been making me think about some creative paint jobs...this just pushes me to want to try even more.

I love the slightly iridescent sheen of the primered portion. How was this achieved.

‚ÄčThank you, I like how the front turned out also. I'll save the truck grill for another project.

The lower body was painted with Dull Clear over hot rod primer.

Really nice looking build! Dull clear looks great on the primer. And, IMO, you couldn't have picked a better color for the roof!

You're the 2nd builder that's done a SHINY :( bottom. Is this some new fad or something?
