Lesney #20c-Chevy Impala Taxi Restoration

This one has been floating around in the toolbox since this blog started, and I finally got around to doing it up. Nothing too crazy, just a nice repaint, but I think it came out nice. Here's what I started with.

I originally was going to go for a lighter blue, but the paint came out horrible, very blotchy and rough looking. Same thing happened with another car that I tried to paint with the same color, must be a bad batch of paint. But a darker blue looks nice on it too! I didn't go for too much chrome, and the Lesney wheels make it look like a real base model, which I like as you don't see base model cars in 1/64 very often..
