1967 Pontiac Bonneville, Update, 9/4
Posted by Goofy62 on Thursday, August 17, 2017 2:45 PM

Getting a start on this MPC '67 Bonneville resto.

I think that I have most of the mods done.

I believe that I'm ready to start priming.

Colors will be "Plum Mist" with a white vinyl top & a black & white interior.

Looking forward to seeing how this build goes. This isn't a car that was very well represented in my circles back in the day. Knowing how great your builds look has me curious to see the completed project. Keep those photos coming.

Thanks guys.

Several of the clear coats have been applied.

Just a couple more & I will be ready to move on to polishing, interior & engine.

This one caught my eye. I was a senior in high school in 1967 and worked after school in a body shop that did touch-up work and repaired transportation damage on new cars for the local Pontiac dealer. General Motors had such soft and elegant metallic colors then which really complemented those flowing body styles. Your build brings back those memories and I'm looking forward to seeing it completed.

Looks great! That is the last 'handsome' year for the big Pontiac.
Check, though, internet pictures of the real ones to see if the A-Pillars are supposed to be body ('A') color or the color of the roof.

I'm not sure which is right.

A couple more shots.

The color shows better in natural light.

There was a color used in '65 called "Burgundy",

It was close, but more on the red side.

The purple that year was more of a lavender color & was called "Iris Mist".

Nice. I remember a wagon in that color.  Would like to find a pontiac wagon to build in that color. 

How did you foil the scripts?

Same as I always do.

I foil them before the final color coat, clean the script off with a little thinner after the final coat & then clear coat.
