You finished it off great.  The grill looks very nice.  You still smiling about that pinstripe?

Bill, I feel you deserve two big "brownie points" for this build. First, it's simply a stunning model with exceptional detailing. (Yes, I'm in awe of your pin striping technique!) Second, to have pulled off a wonderful build with such a sub-par kit (that should have had either it's molds repaired long ago, or simply retired) is simply amazing. Take a well deserved "bow", my friend. Bow Fury3

Thanks Dave! The body on this one needed a lot of attention, door lines had to be scribed deeper as they would have been easily lost under a couple of coats of paint. There were three position holes for the axles, none of them worked or even looked close to correct. I spent more time on this low parts count build than any of my other builds just to get it "right".

Very nice as always. That pin-striping looks great and goes together so well. Nice work.

Great build plumber. It came out fantastic!!  What is the color you used on the body? My father used to have a 67 LeMans in this color.

Thanks for the comment! I used Duplicolor Bahama blue. It's a 11oz can from the Truck, Van & Suv line of paint.

 Thanks Randy! I wish I had a couple of these kits when it was originally issued before they started messing with it.

I'm updating this thread to show builder's who say this kit is junk and unbuildable, that there IS a gem inside that box! It just takes some effort.

Looks beautiful!
