Pics: Well, Karl, “full rotisserie restoration” in 1:43 may be a bit of a stretch of the imagination
but Im a firm believer in the world of make believe. I will rig up some way to rotate the body so as to reach all surfaces outside and underneath. My intention is to have it replicate this fine example as closely as possible. Found this color of Krylon paint which is pretty close to Sunset Coral.


The car is being shipped tomorrow and is due to arrive by next Saturday. Have yet to determine the extent of repair and preparation. Chrome bumpers look a bit rough. Will, of course, need new tires. Now, for a set of Kelsey-Hayes wires!
