The idea here was a car that was done up as a mild custom years ago, mothballed, then dragged out and treated to a mechanical refurbishing and an interior refit- just enough to get it road-worthy before a repaint. I did polish it in spots to burn off the dark grey primer and expose the 'original' green paint beneath, and the chrome has also been 'refinished'. I left some debris in the paint on the stone guards, though, in an attempt to make it look like lightly pitted pot metal.
The model has the chopped body from Morgan Automotive Detail, a Revell Cadillac three-two manifold (from the '49 Merc) as well as that kit's side pipes, Orange Crate valve covers, and the replacement printed wide whitewalls from Revell. All glass was cut from .010" styrene
