THank you Jack, One thing I would recommend for when you paint the brakes is that you use spray paint, not brush on paint from Duplicolor, brushing the paint on the calipers is easy, easy but the drums are a PITA. You would prolly have to paint the drum three times like I did to get decent coverage.

It'* actually quite simple. I just brought a Duplicolor paint pen (GM Red of course) and just used the pen end (do not use the brush too much paint) and I just filled it in. Easy actually. I did all the Bonnevilles letters.

I'll upload a pic of that now. Give me a half hour or so... damn dial up...

edit* also kinda like that rice flame pinstripe... couldnt make it all the way to the rear though
It does go all the way to the end... I just didn't photograph it. Plus, I thought it would look stupid if it went all the way to the taillights, so I ended it past the C-pillar

I really like the lettering. I may have yet another project for springtime. Let'* see the corrected steerinf wheel, too. I always thought about that, but never got brave enough to test my bad eyes and shakey hand.... (insert old man joke here)

I'll get pics of that soon, I added a white line around the arrowhead. It looks nice... and MOS if you're afraid, just use nail polish to remove paint, they come off easy.
