Interesting about the "hours to complete" information on the box. Quite amusing, actually.

Nick , Hi !

 You know , I was very disappointed to see they took the opening doors out of that kit . With carefully thinned paint on the door edges they fit so well . Still love the chrome you have to put on them .

 I usually do the anniversary series paint combos .My fave ? The Classic anniversary Gold Metallic with a Creme top . Put the chrome on and ouch ! Wear Sun - Glasses !

 I do like the job you've done so far on the engine .

I'll be keeping tabs on this build. I learned to drive in a new black '58 Chevy with automatic trans. The day they took me to the State Police barracks for my test they put me in a stick. Needless to say I flunked out. Went down the hill, stopped at the stop sign, made the right to go to the stalls for the 3 point. Instead of just turnig right, I made a u turn, jumped the curb and went through the fence. The tropper hit the other brakes or I would have gone off into the field. Took it the next time in a stick and passed. Loved the car though.

Silver blue will look great!!! Whenever I think of a '58 chevy I visualize the opening scene of American Graffiti with the white '58 chevy and Toad on the scooter. That's a great movie.

My 1st and only 58 was white with a red white interior in 1973 of course no BMF to much  chrome to paint at 13 but yes American graffiti is a great movie with my favorite bullet
