This is built from twokits. I first built this about 20 years ago I think. I stripped the paint, but it didn't strip very well so left it on the garage bench getting covered in saw dust, cobwebs dead flies and a film of brake fluid. Until one day a tin of paint hit the body and shattered the windshield frame. It sat for another 5 years or so collecting more dust. 
Luckily I had removed all the bumper etc . And then about two years a go I saw another one built up on Ebay, with faded chrome and a terrible hand painted brown body shell and beige interior. So I bought it for £9, and stripped the body, and transferred all the parts over, to make this !!! And now I also have a spare set of white walls from the other kit.

Gorgeous! Looks like Bruce Wayne's car from the TV series.

My favorite color is clear. I am also ambidexterous, I can screw up equally well with either hand. I am 53 years old and been building for most of that time. :)
