I can't decide which one I like the best between the deuce coupe and the sedan. The blue color seems to work well with the flat black paint and metallic gold hubs. The metallic gold looks much better when it is actually on the black wheels than it does when it is drying in the rack. 

I use axle pegs instead of the solid axles called for in the plans. My totally unscientific testing buy rolling toys down a board with my grandson assisting clearly indicated the axle pegs rool better. I also add nylon washers behind the wheels to keep them from rubbing on the body and nylon acts as a bearing allowing the wheels to spin easier. I also wax the axles.

I've definately got to do a better job of dusting things before I photograph them.

Advanced techniques are the basics perfectly applied.

I like the flat black with that blue - it looks great.  I think it makes the blue really pop.
