This is my first attempt at BMF. I'm pleased with how it finished. Hard to see next to silver paint. This will be a 69 Nova SS 396. I bought this car from the showroom floor in 69. Also bought a 66 Nova SS 327 from the floor in 66, & I'll build this one next.

Looks great! Hopefully my first attempt will look that good. Did you just push it down in and trim with an X-acto?

I cut it wide & push in with toothpic then again with a large leather working needle I had about 3" long. Burnished with a Qtip then trimmed with new blade. Most tips I got from here....thanks to the forum. Waiting on a set of Goodyears & I'll post the car. Man wheels & tires are hard to fins since GMP went out of business.

Finishing up my 69 Nova SS & about finished with my 66 Nova. Anyone know where I can get an after market steering wheel? I had one on my 66. I checked Detail Master.

Ok so this car isn't going to win any model contest, besides it wasn't built for that. It was a nostalgic build of the car I bought new 43 years ago. I Googled Oh plates & printed with my ink jet. I have WIP of my 66 Nova when it gets completed. The 69 was kept stock just like I bought it.
