Thanks, Rick! I appreciate your comment!

Here are a few pics of the interior. I need to trim the horn ring a bit and paint a black center in the steering wheel. Otherwise done! Thanks for looking! Cool

Thanks, McLovin, I appreciate your comment! Yes, I'm retired and with the Chinese virus everywhere I have to stay indoors pretty much so I have plenty of time to build!

Very nice and neat work obviously. Engine detail looks great and I see you added the wiring and heater hoses. Did you paint the body stripes or are they decals? Lastly I like that interior color as it would work well for some of my future builds. Lowes carries Krylon so that should be easy to attain.

Thanks, Amt and Buick! I appreciate your very kind comments! Amt, the black stripes are decals from the kit and the heater hoses were also included in the kit. I always buy my Krylon at Michaels or Hobby Lobby as I can use a 40% coupon with their app. I am not familiar with what Lowe's has but I think Krylon may also an enamel line so be careful to check as I have awful trouble with enamel out of a spray can.

Nice job, jr.  I didn't think much of the body colour in the first photo, but seeing the model completed with the trim and on its wheels, gives it a different look.  Good neat work on the hemi and the interior as well, I really like the overall result.  Cheers, congrats.

Thanks, Steve! I appreciate your comments! I like trying different colors from time to time just to see how they look. There is a bronze color in the 67 Plymouth pallet, maybe not this shade but close.

Turned out great! I finished mine a month ago. Bare metal foil on those vent windows was a mother. 
Everything else was great.
