Nice build Randy super shiny smooth paint as always! Great stance on the car never was much of a 57 Chevy fan but you did it justice for sure

Thx Ernie  It's not one of my early favourites either,  the body is a little too big and would need a lot of power to make it move!!

Thx Modeller...Used a Testers Purple-Licious one coat lacquer on the body and PlastiKote Almond Pearl on the roof, there was three light coats applied with beers in between. Good ice cold beer made the difference

 Thx Ernie that wagon wouldn't have been the same without you, I usually toss candy bar wrappers in the trash can, but not no more, I'm saving them now for you!! Cheers Big E  We'll leave the wagon at home Ernie, let's take the funny car, I call shot gun!!
