Thanks, Slusher and Timonator! I appreciate your comments!  Yes, Timonator, I did have some flash on the bumpers but I sanded the back of the bumpers and the edges from the back and then painted with Testors chrome silver trim (it dries faster) where the chrome came off. You can't really see it as I didn't take off too much chrome and only worried about the top edge.

It's a long fly ball to deep center field! going, going , it's outta here! Jr you hit a homerun here my friend! Well done from top to bottom. And the detailing is off the chart as well. Again I think this is the best 69 Camaro build I have ever seen. GREAT JOB!!!

Its only plastic until you add imagination! CG63.

A few more:

And while I was trying to get the hood up with some Handi-tak and knocking off the antenna the sun went away!

Thanks, Csaba!  I appreciate your comment!  However, I am not as ambitious as you are with that Challenger! Cool

Me too... I (would) like any driveway, actually. Laugh By the way, It would be great to see a muscle car/pony car group photo (at least of the latest builds). How about that John?

Thanks, Rik and Csaba!  Actually, that is the cobblestone walkway or edging around the pool. That's when I was working and had some money! The grandkids like it so we have fun in the summertime. But I should have spent the money on a modeling room where I could paint and build anytime. I'll try to get some muscle cars together, Csaba, but I haven't built too many lately. Thanks for the comments! Cool

I have always know brake fluid acts as an excellent paint remover.  however I thought it would melt plastic quickly.  Have never tried it.  What's the duration for parts?  Has anyone else used brake fluid?
