Well here's the final out come of a challenging build. After sanding the rain drip rails,door locks,and the emblems off. Giving it a smoother look.Spraded on the neon,and 7-up green,and a little clear coat. All paints were Testors lacguer. Done a little engine detail.I decided not to use the mirrows that came with the kit.They were a little bogus and didn't fit worth a darn.Ended up using 62 impala mirrows as well as tail lights. Hope you enjoy.http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh106/TOPBANANA13/100_2584.jpg[/IMG]

That's definately different. Colors are a nice combination, and I like the detail work on the engine.

Nice...the full fender covers give it almost a euro look, but back at that time period, and before, there were US trucks running the same full wheel cover...mostly dodges!
Very nice....how...she needs a trailer...
