'62 Impala SS by Lindburgh. Another WIP that is festering in the pile and gets dragged out for small step to completion.

Auto store blue & Dulcote for the interior, and I'm trying to get a red oxide finish for the underside.

Silver on the interior makes that above average. Red oxide is certainly a different chassis look. Good luck on the wrap-up!

I used the "chevy talk" forum as a reference and the tell me red oxide was the OEM finish back in the day,
They're a really helpfull bunch there and are a great resource when searching for obscure details re component colours & finishes.

Looking good man, I like the contrast between the blue interior and the silver body! Nice work on the engine too!

convertibles are such a great subject for interior work, and your looks bang on.

I really like how the silver body helps pop up the detail in the interior - that blue works so well.

I reshot it in Tamiya Gloss Aluminium. Much better result this time and it polished out well too.
BMF in progress over the weekend.
