After. New wheels and paint job. Not one of my best paint jobs....I also slightly bent the base while trying to remove the wheels so the body didn't quite fit properly when re-assembled. :angry:

Thanks! :thumbup:

I kinda like it better than it was but again I am just using cheap rattle can paint and clear coat. I didn't use primer however I am starting to see that I should be. Oh by the way, the wheels came off a Matchbox Snorkel Truck.... :lol:

Anyhow it's fun! :toy:

That's mostly what I use too, doesn't have to be fancy! It's all in the application.

Nice job on the restoration, and also for giving me an idea. I didn't know HW made a Seville. But if I could find one, I would give it a try to make it look like the '84 Eldo I once owned. They were pretty much the same car from the B-post forward.

Thank you! I was lucky that the wheels fit without any modifications to the axles and I too really like how they look. :thumbup:
