Great paint combo, ride height is good, even like those wheels, (now add a modern power plant and an all out interior) just my thoughts.

This makes me think of Surf Boards and the beach.....In my best California Surf Lingo I say "Tubular".....Translated that means Really Really Kool. That is a nice Paint Job.....You mentioned decals. Are you gonn'a put some on the back windows? I remember a Woody that had a Souped up 283 the guy had his "Speed Equipment" decals on the rear window...Gave it kind of a nostalgic look. I am sure what ever you do is going to look great.

Hi Tom I saw your Post about the Wheels, I remember the early issue of the Revell 56 Nomad had some pretty good white walls. I think if you sanded the plating off the "Steelie" area with the center area masked....Sprayed 'em with some of your "Real Pretty Blue". You could turn those Chevy wheels into some convincing "Steelies" with a small hub cap.
