..just shows what a couple of hours a night for a week can do.
Okay, the body was already painted before I got back into it, but hey - it's finished.

Well done    

The white walls, fender skirts and lowering give it that realistic look

Very nice and clean. I agree completely with the others about the great stance and look of the car. It really fits the period correctly. Great job.

I could have got it lower, but the front wishbones would have been scraping the deck,
and the driveshaft would be slapping the inside of the tunnel...got to have a hint of reality, what?
...thanks everybody !

How on Earth did I miss this finished build? I would have sworn I'd posted about it!!!!

You did a cracking job on her Ron. Looks just right for a mild custom including the gorgeous paint.

Thanks again All !

I keep doing that all the time Al - I keep seeing stuff all the time that I have missed.
Considering this forum has a tight circle of modellers - it's always busy.

Great color contrast on the rims.
