this wasnt as bad as the 68 Impala Conv't but i thought i would try some new things out.

first up was repairing the cowl vent area

With the glass being glued in to well to the body (reason i had to replace the cowling) i also had to repair the chrome molding around the back glass

LOL MJ !!!

I really think that you have all the old 67 Galaxies in your basement. Nice work on that one. Every time I see you with another 67 Galaxie I laugh ( or cry lol) because I can never seem to score even one...except for the one Albert sent me and the R&R kit I got at NNL east...

For those of you reading this post and don't know MJ.....I think he has a genie that makes original 67 and 68 Galaxies, and 66-69 Falcons for him.... :-)

Nice repair work - nice color too! I've used that color on two builds, and it looks nice in scale..

James...I uses to make the same plea !! Someone over at another board told me that the 67 and 68 Galaxie molds are long gone. This is really too bad...I guess in those days they'd reuse some of the mold fom year to year on the annual kits. So some of the old molds were partially destroyed to make the next year annual...where some of the parts were actually reused.

I might have that wrong a bit but what I have correct is that I wish they'd re-tool some the 67-68 galaxies and a dozen other kits from the past !
