Another model car finished. I have to say I had pleasure to build this car, everything fits good and overall look came out nice in my eyes.

I tried to combine OG(original) look with lowrider style.

Alright, I'll give you overview what I've done:
Body:
*Primer: some kind of Mr. Color Surfacer, I think.
*Paint: Zero Paints Brilliant Red + Zero Paints Pearl White
*Clear: DuPont 3800S - ChromaClear HS
* I didnt use any kit decals except license plates. All emblems and trims are done with BMF.
*Panel Lines darkened with Tamiya Smoke
* I used Zero Candy Red to make taillights more realistic.

Chassis:
*Some random wheels from my drawer. I used 1964 Impala kit's stock version whitewalls, they were too big in diameter tho, I did some cutting and they fit like a charm.
*Frame + Axles + Exhaust mufflers are engraved. Frame and axles got Alclad Chrome paint. The Frame was not separated from bottom so I had to mask it out with tape to paint.

Engine:
*Fuel pump from 1964 Impala kit
*Fuel lines and filter.
*Ignition wires with PE clamps.
*Hydraulic lines and cylinders

Interior:
*I tried to achieve OG look.
*Details done with BMF
*Lowridermagazine and Impalas Magazine on back seat


Ok too much bullshit, take a look at pictures and let me know what you think :D
