Panel Painted '58 Thunderbird Traditional Custom

Larry Watson is my favorite painter/customizer so this car was done in his style. I started on this car a little over four years ago and I finally finished it up last night! It's the old Monogram kit. The front bumper had holes in it to install bumper guards. Those were eliminated and the bumper was rechromed. Seventy one holes were drilled into the grill and seventy one pin heads were installed to replicate grill buttons. The interior is box stock with the exception of foil and flocking. The car was dropped by way of scratch-built spindles, ball-point pen coil springs, dremel and Pabst Blue Ribbon. B) This one was a lot of fun but it also tested my patience along the way. I'm very happy to have this one wrapped up.
