Hi Barry, here are some more pix. After taking the tire pix, at the suggestion of some here, I turned the tires around and put the white lettering out of sight. You should be able to see how I had the white trimming done all the way around the car, to set the top off a bit more from the body. I get many, many nice comments regarding the paint job. Both colors are a metal flake paint and when the sun is shining on it just right, it sparkles, including the white paint. It certainly is non-traditional, but gets raves when it is out and about.

Barry - just ran across this on ebay. Have not ordered from this seller just thought you would like to see the color combo.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/SUN-STAR-196...item232198cfdf

My Thunderbird (as well as a few others on the forum) were actually used as a template for these models. The company doing the work gave me an original draft of the drawings they used - pretty nice. Sunstar sure got the contour of the front bumper wrong though.
