    Hi
    Thought you might like to see some photos of my new toy! It has been finished about a month but haven't had time to get any good photos yet, so here they are! It is a 62 Chevy Suburban called The Tahitian, it is painted in VW cream pearl, with House of Kolor Gold base coat and then Roth gold flake on top, then red/orange lace panels everywhere!! The interior is painted in the same cream with VW gold. The front seat is covered in old style Barkclotch, with cream vinyl and gold flake piping, then matting on the roof lining, also floor cover and sun visor, then to finish the interior light is a puffer fish!
    Everything has been pinstriped to finish.
    It has a brand new crate motor which is gold painted and then flaked, and then the wheels and tyres are Coker red bands with gold flake wheels!
    I love it!
    Sue.
