The body is painted. I used Testors MM rattle can for Cordoba gray. It is actually
gloss gull gray aka FS16440. Still have to mask and paint the top semi gloss black.---John

Nice, good color choice for the car. Something you don't see everyday.

Body and interior assembled, windshield and mirror installed and the top is
now semi gloss black. AMT had the attachment points for the windshield
frame in 6 bad spots, I had to sand them and lost some chrome. I painted
the whole frame chrome silver instead of Bare Metal Foil. The fenders are also
painted but drying as of now.---John

Gary it does sort of look like the Jaguar emblem. I think it is
suppose to be a greyhound though.---John

Nice save on the windshield frame, John.

For small spots on chrome pieces, I use a craft product called Rub n Buff. It's a wax based product - just dab a bit on the sanded spot and then buff with a Q-Tip. It comes out a very shiny silver like aluminum. The dark spot's gone and at a glance it's unnoticeable.

Mike: I've heard about Rub n Buff before.  Where do you find it?  Haven't been able to find it here in Utah.

Definitely want to try that rub n buff. This would have made a neat looking
hot rod. Back to work, need to gloss coat fenders.---John

John, Ive just got the AK Interactive wax True Metal paint tubes (10 in all). They are a rub and buff type and very good.

If one built one as you picture (sans fenders, hood, etc) it would make for part of a cool diorama.  Also grey is a good common color back then.  Interiors tended to be in a color called taupe, tho grey was also used.  Good progress.

Thanks, I was thinking taupe but I have done a lot of interiors in that and similar
colors so I decided to go with something I haven't used, gray. The gray inside for
the interior is a light gray with a blueish cast, the exterior gray was a light gray with
a warm tint, brownish, U.S. Navy gloss gull gray, not too different than cordoba gray,
I think.---John

Here in the midwest there's a chain of craft stores called Michael's. They have a sectiion that's all metallic coatings like Rub n Buff, paints, leafing, paint pens, etc.

It's also available on ebay, but without the advantage of using a Michael's 40% off coupon, of course.
