A perfect inside/outside color combination for a classic car.  I still laugh when I think about the first time one stopped in for gas at the truck stop where I worked and I couldn't find the gas cap. The owner laughed and laughed at me. What did you use for the chrome trim?

I hand painted it with a fine liner brush and Testors Chrome Silver paint .that was nerve wracking could not breathe when painting the trim!The gas filler is on the left tail fin.

Yeah, Eugene, eventually I found it.  Best example from Detroit of hiding the gas cap on a car's design.  Have you tried the Molotow chrome pens?  Once again great job on the 57 Chevy.
