I used the custom parts from the kit to build this puppy and used HOK organic green kandy over a planet green basecoat. Then everything got covered with Nason 2 part urethane, sanded, polished and waxed. The interior features a full length console with bucket seats in each corner.

After taking the pics I noticed the radiator hose was missing. It's on there now.

Very nice looking '57 Chevy! The colors are not very typical, but they look great on this body anyway. Nice engine detailing too and smooth paint work. You always do great work, Jim. Just wish that the guys in the backseat have short legs. :lol:

Those tail lights are fantastic. Beautiful car. I was searching to give me some ideas for a '57 I'm about to start, and found this, good way to get ideas for my own build.

The colors are not may taste Jim.

the funny thing is, that my Bro made the same 57 as a custom with the same color. Just thought when i saw the first picture: "what the...my Bro's Chevy?!?" But, yours is no topchop, so it is another on.

You made a good job, looks as one style from front to end. Well done Jim! Well done.

But, only a mistake, if it is allowed. around the tail lights, i am missing some paint. I think, mounting the tail lights, they fittet very strong? perhaps you can take a brush and the color to paint the scratches it very carefully (very very carefully!).
