1953 Ford Sunliner


Recommended Posts

Finished this one this morning. 

After seeing the red '53 go, I decided to build one for me. 

The color was mixed from Acrilex water based paints to represent Timberline Green. Since the acrylic paint dries flat, I gave the body two coats of automotive two part clear.

Mixed a slightly different tone of metallic green for the interior.  

Foil is home made.

Still don't know about the fender skirts. Think I like the car better without them. 

Also plan on the future, to get a set of wheels with wheel covers for the car, instead of the Pace Car wire wheels included in the kit.

Absolutly amazing, I really dig the colour. One question, all that amazing work and attention to detail, why no plug wires, just curious. 

Thanks!! For me it's very rare to add detail other than what comes in the box. Still trying not to make a mess with what the kit provides, LOL!!!
