Thanks for stepping outside the box, Rob. It's a treat for the rest of us.

The top is looking great; as is the woodwork.

Whoa!! How did I miss this build? You have some amazing stuff going on there, Rob. Now that I found the Jolly Roger, I can stay tuned in. Will you be finished with it by October 14?

Now you got me confused, Rob. I have paperwork showing the October 14-16 SE Street Rod Nationals is also the MAGS model car show. We already have a room down there for the weekend.

JaxCon is February 4, 2012 at the UNF University Center (same place as last year). It looks like we'll be holding a Florida Auto & Scale Trucks Model Club (FAST) meeting there too. Member or not, you're welcome to the meeting.

Okay, my bad. I got the shows confused. Perhaps ready for the show in Pinessas Park in November, I forget who's putting it on.

I painted the frame to resemble wood. Got the top glued on and the steering wheel is nearly done. I still have to weather the top a bit.

Thanks Rommel, if things go well at work today and tomorrow at work, I'll have the weekend off and will be getting back at it. The steering wheel is in the dip. I was unhappy with how it turned out. I'll try something else.

Rob this is looking great. I really love the detail on the floorboards. And the top is killer. Can't wait to see more.

Dashboard and steering wheel done. I also dirtified the top and added a lip on the inside of the roof so that it fits nice. If the shift lever and directional look a bit exaggerated it is intentional. Still working on the front seat. Body work very soon. Gotta hinge the trunk and we'll be ready for primer.
