I'm with you on that, Rob...really thought this thread would have been more active, considering the initial enthusiasm.

Looks good, Randy!

Man, Mike that paint turned out SMOOTH. Looks great.

Unfortunately I hit two of the most busiest months (Mar and Apr) than I've had in a long time and I obviously didn't finish mine, but I'm still working on it until it's completed.

So, I bet you all thought I had forgotten about you and the Jairus Watson Artwork Challenge! Honestly, life has been hectic of late, but no matter how hectic you don't let others down. Anyway, the end of the Jairus Watson Artwork Challenge is quickly coming to an end. Here is the plan, starting this evening and ending at Midnight (12am) Pacific Daylight Savings time on Friday April 15th, 2011 submit photos of your completed build to JWAC2011@gmail.com. Submit at least 1 photo that best replicates the artwork that you received at the start of the Challenge ie:attempt to photograph your build from the same angle and orientation of the artwork. Remember the object of the Challenge is to best replicate the original artwork, the same thing needs to apply to the photo(s) that you submit.

Over the weekend of April 16-17, Jairus, James Warkentin and myself will compare your photos to the original artwork, the build the we feel best replicates the artwork will be declared the winner of the Jairus Watson Artwork Challenge. The winner will be notified and posted here on the MCM Forum no later the 9PM Pacific Daylight Savings Time April 17th, 2011.

Again, email your entry photo(s) to JWAC2011@gmail.com no later then 12AM (midnight) Pacific Daylight Savings Time Friday April 15th, 2011. We are looking forward to seeing your completed builds and hoping you seriously challenge us when it comes to judging your entries.

Well, I won't finish in time but I thought that I'd post tonight's work on my Beetle. I spent a few hours bending and re-bending solder for my exhaust. Here is where I'm at with it.

I still need to add the P.E. header flanges, collector and the stinger pipe. Once I start all of that on my next session I'll do the fine tuning to get a bit more ground clearance for the exhaust. It won't be much due to the low ride height and the exhaust having to clear the bumper. The bumper will be able to be raised a bit , but not much without interfering with the engine boot. I also have some paint overspray to clean up on the engine. More in next post.

I also spent some time tonight working on the seat belts, although I didn't take any photos of them.
I had a problem with some red plastic that I'd used to attach the whale tail to the engine boot. It kept wanting to bleed through my white primer so I shot a light coat of silver on it. Hopefully when I put my next coat of primer on it won't show. Although I am not going to finish in time for the contest, I am still enjoying this build and plan to stick on it until it's done. I hope everyone else had fun and I look forward to seeing the builds.

Coming down to the wire, less the 30 hours before the clock strikes Midnight on Friday April 15th Pacific time. There are a few entries in the email bag, let's see how many more we can add in the next day or so. I know Jairus, James and myself are looking forward to you making it difficult for us to determine the winner.

I also would love to see the other builds.I thought this was really fun and eventhough mine is just a curbside it was challenging trying to get the stuff on the paper into the third demension. after being plagued by last minute snags I will go back over this and refine some areas that got shorted due to time constraints. man that was fun!

Guys, you might think you are the only one building but remember... there are about 10 members of Scale Auto Builders Association who are building/have already completed their entries! Most of these guys are older, rarely on the computer, and have many years of experience building. Not to mention they will be at the show with their cars. So.... take excellent pictures of your completed project and post it here or email to Dave Fletcher.

While I am not able to complete my build... we are still looking at 20 - 30 entries! :wub:


Where are they?

The bulk of the cars finished in this contest were completed by members of Scale Auto Builders Association. 10 showed up at the 21st NNL. If you are a member of Facebook, click on the link.

I have no idea why more did not come from this forum. Over 50 entries were handed out and for two months last year I was answering questions and pointing builders in the right direction for most of those entries. I know of at least 2 finished builds that could have competed but didn't and more than 10 entries here were started but not finished. (Read back in the thread to see for yourself!) I didn't get my build finished either due to personal reasons so I can't complain too much.

It is what it is.

Congratulations to all the guys for completing your builds and winning!
Personally, I feel like a lump for not finishing mine, but I do intend to complete it and post it here. Keep watching.

I'd like to see more finished up with the excitement this generated initially. Perhaps too long of a challenge for some? I know I set mine aside for a while to get a couple of other challenge and club builds done.

Come on guys...get them done! You know you want to!! Posted Image
