JL Chevorlet Malibu WIP

HI all this is my latest WIP. This is JL Chevy Malibu from the JL 4 Pack. It was ZINGER car and hate zingers, but loved the casting. So I picked out some KITT HW rims and used the old JL Pontiac Firebird base, a little dremel action and Woahla.... Still need a hood and the wheels dont roll the best right now, but all stuff I will get too.

I've always liked these Malibus. Those wheels look pretty good on there. Almost like factory styled wheels.

I built one of those Malibu's a couple of years ago. I kept the paint job, as you have.

Now, you need to go to a toy show to find some more Malibu's for parts cars... for a spare hood, and some engines to test fit. Then you'll be picture perfect.

I was working on photos for another thread. I thought about looking for some pics of my old Chevelle Malibu.
After digging through my computer for a while, I found some. I hope it's ok that I posted them.
