Alfa Romeo B.A.T.9 concept car 1955

This one started out as a fleamarket beater.

I did a "mild" built on it as it's a pretty funky design straight out of the packet.

Went through the usual prep: dis-assembly, strip, casting cleanup and primer.

The lower body was painted silver and the upper body a pink pearl nail polish, metal foil was used for the chrome trim followed by clearcoat.

Glass was restored using "Future" type floor polish.

Wheel swap was a challenge since the wheels are so skinny and are completely inside the body, so very few wheels will fit this casting.

Managed to find a Jada pickup with skinny wheels and they just fit the BAT9.... it almost rolls :o)

Interior was sprayed black to make the blue glass work better with the pink paint.

Thanks for looking.
