Well it's done. I think it turned out fair. Not my best but not my worst either. The experiment of using Aluminum Foil and Foil Adhesive for the trim was a great success.  You really have to work at this kit to get it to be a sow's ear, for it to be a silk purse you would have to scrap the one piece chassis and start over. I would build it again but as a Pro-Street car with a different chassis. Any way here it is.

It's still looks very good Buck - you can only work with what you are given.
Trouble is, we are getting spoilt with the detail in modern kits.

Great looking old chrome-laden classic. Love that kit.

I could overlook the chassis if they just got rid of those radiator wall screw bosses on the reissues!
