    I started building this machine in Dec 2012 and got it finished just hours before the Indy Road Rocket Rumble in June 2013.

    I decided to go back on the lower body and straighten all those little spots that I missed and give it a new look

    Here's a shot from when I got it finished last summer and a shot from yesterday while the clear was still wet. Its still the original mint green underneath the panels with Color Horizons mint green Kandy over it.

    That looks great! Is that the same color that is on the roof?

    Nice job!!
    Always admired these cars and thought they are overlooked as Kustom fodder.
    Glad to see yours being built.

    Yes the top is the same Kandy just a little darker due to the silver base color.

    As a general rule, stripes/scallops are not my favorite, but you have done it spot on.
    I like that a lot.
    Great job ! :)

    Love the scallops.

    Reminds me a bit of Kirk's May Cause Dangerous, less the lace of course.

    Looks damned good.

    Well I think I faired pretty well in my public debut with the new paint. Got everything finished and buttoned up Thursday morning at 5am and headed to the Indy Road Rocket Motorama 1962 later that morning. By Sunday I came home with top honors with the peoples choice award. Totally unexpected and totally awesome! Here's a few pics from the show.

    Nice neat cool car! and congrats on the Peoples Choice Award! I think that of all the awards given out at shows any car or truck or machine that wins the Peoples Choice is the best awarded vehicle as this means the common folks love it, may not be perfect, may have character issues, may not be by the numbers, or better yet, may not be able to classify it in a specific type of vehicle, but the PEOPLE still love it above any other vehicle! GREAT JOB!!! :D
