I think the Plymouth is a good looking car. Doing a great job John.

I really like the color  too Al.  I'm kind of sorry the Hemi didn't work out though, but it was just going to take too much time and effort to make it work.

The final color  coat is on the coupe now.  The body still needs polishing, waxing and BMF.  



The front end has been lowered approximately 4 scale inches by reversing the spindles.  The rear end has been raised approximately 2 scale inches creating the stance shown.



Dropping  the front end has caused the exhaust headers to come too close to the ground.  I have an idea for fixing this problem and will probably be able to get it done today.



I had planned on this being a "quick" build, but it doesn't look like that is going to happen.  The model has served its purpose though of getting me back in the mood.

Coming right along. I also wish the late model Hemi would have been a go.

Put me in the glad you didn't go with the hemi camp. Engines I see way too much of in kits. Ford SOHC and Chrysler 426 and 392 Hemi's. I've bought kits (Tommy Ivo's Showboat & Mickey Thompson Challenger) just to get engines (Buick & Pontiac respectively).

Paint looking great. Stance is excellent. One nit. I think the bumper brackets should be body color.
