I don't see how a thread getting too big would be an issue- a healthy thread means a healthy forum, right?
Yep, I didn't bother with an end date. If this gets so big as to be an issue to Gregg or Harry, we'll work something out then. But so far responce has been luke-warm. I'll keep it going though.
Back on the Bench! CBP

Here you can see my work bench
And here you can see where I painted the molded-in exhaust.
I used the ol' clicking ball point pen spring trick. You can see the kit-supplied springs versus the spring springs.....

Here are a few teaser pics of what I have been able to get done so far.
The tabs to help mount the C5R rear suspension.
The rear end mocked up.
And a couple mocked up with the wheels and how she'll hopfully set after i get the front end figured out. OH, and the "body kit" I threw on there, too.
Let me know what you think.

After taking the pics, I'm gonna make some inserts for my paint booth to take pics. Just can't get enough light off of florescent bulbs.

Ok, I'll bite. I've got this Monogram '58 T-bird that's been painted and has been stalled and sitting now for way too long. It's time to get 'er on the bench and finish 'er up. This is the perfect build thread to make sure that happens.
Love the paint work on this Greg! I'm very tempted to try something similar on my '62 Buick.

Some work on the Stude.
I'll feather the edges of the primer with some 3600 grit tomorrow, rinse and hit it with another light coat of paint. We'll see how it looks.

The updated C5R engine. I ordered my stacks from Wheelman and shortened them to fit under the hood. I sat at work on Tuesday while on break and made the fuel rails and installed the braided line for some extra effect.
The interior. Generic red & black, with a mixed red & black flocking for the carpeted areas. I think it looks fairly sharp.
And the wheels. Standard C5R BBS wheels. Painted the centers the same Cherry red as the interior for a little accent.
Comments and suggestions welcome.
Thanks for looking.
