Mini tubbed 55 Chevy


Recommended Posts

hey Brian, glad I found you here, facebook is too hard for me to follow.  the 55 is looking really nice, as usual. I see you posted up your 67 camaro, now you need to let people feast their eyes on that nova you built.

I need to retake some pictures of them for sure and post them in the under glass section. Pics will not upload from my phone unless the picture is taken sideways. I may do that this weekend

Hey guys made a little progress in the past few days. I added some embossing powder to the package tray and floor. I also foiled the trim on the door panels. I added an auto meter tach with a shift light because...well they're just cool!  I guess you can tell I finally decided on the color. I still like the idea of silver and have also thought about solid orange(I may have to build 2 more one day). I hope you guys like it and thanks for all the previous comments. 20190108_172005.thumb.jpg.ecc6ab59efc3365444d90f6367cd4369.jpg

Hey guys, hope everyone has had fun at the bench! Got a small update. I had a few slot cars to do for some guys so having the bodywork pretty much done I shot some gravity colors rally green. Then it happened!!!! I dropped it! I got it wet sanded out yesterday and reshot the color. I got a chance to spray some clear tonight and it turned out pretty decent. I know it's not a big update but hey 1 step closer. Thanks again everyone for the comments and please let me know if you see anything I can improve on.
