It's finished.
Being a 63 year old kit it has some issues.  The chrome on the bumpers wasn't the best so it didn't seem like it was worth it to BMF the side trim as I originally planned.  Plus there are other fit issues I didn't worry about fixing.  I just had fun finishing it as a sidekick for the Batmobile.

I had already assembled the tires 15 years ago and the sidewalls were painted white.  I masked them off and shot them black.  The paint was dry...

Ya Know;

    Tis funny. When she sat ignored in front of the Barris shop( Before Batmobile insults) she was the original color she had been on the FORD ROTUNDA traveling Dream Car display!

    The Metallic Pale Turquoise ? Paint was in pretty fair shape. It's my understanding the " Mystery "drive Train was the First Naturally aspirated 460 with the then experimental four speed Automatic.

    Showed up in Lincolns later.

Yes, she did...

 

The interior parts were in much the same shape as the body.  Since most of the areas are flat finished just a soap and water wash was done.  Same for the chrome pieces. 
The top and bottom had been somewhat reengineered back when I started building it, so the two halves went together pretty easily.

I started this at least 15 years ago for a movie themed contest, but I decided not to go to the show and shelved it.  I came across it last week and thought I should take a shot at finishing it since it was mostly done.  It's from the movie It Started With a Kiss and this is how it looked before it became the Batmobile.
The paint was still OK, but covered in a lot more dust and grime than I expected.   A quick wash and polish took care of it…  (My camera is having a hard time seeing it.)
