Here's a shot halfway through framing the tail lights. I have two stand-ins marked red with a sharpie and am bending a triangular extension of the body molding completely around them. The actual tail lights can be seen below made from clear red sprue ... they are not cut to length yet. The rectangular shape seems to reflect the boxy shape of the wide rear end to me. The molding will be sanded and will be body color. I might make a shrouded license plate cover but waiting for the lights to be done to see.

Here you can see the tail light surrounds better in primer.. I'm happy with these filling in the vast wasteland from the widened fenders.
It's looking more and more like a license plate shroud will be appearing.

It appears the major bodywork is done. I took a suggestion by Charlie8575 and put 3 vertical slats in the grill opening which will be body color. It was much easier than I thought, but with a lot of sanding and test fits. I like how it looks ... as if I planned it from the start! :lol:

The license plate shroud got on today also and just needs a little putty to mold in. Just some .02" styrene. The back looks complete now with no big, flat expanses.

I haven't thought hardly at all about the interior during all this bodywork, so this morning it was time. I knew fitting things in with the fenders welded to the body would be tricky. Everything underneath had been cut back as much as possible to allow the interior to be placed. First was the glass. I cut the AMT glass leaving just the windshield and that fits good with the windshield frame from underneath. The AMT rear and side windows are to wide to fit now and just as well ... I'll cut some new glass to fit the rear and side windows.

The Revell interior sides got 10" cut from the bottoms and fit well. The AMT bucket has plain side panels that don't look that good and the bucket won't go in anyway. The AMT '32 has a rear package shelf while the Revell has the seat right up against the rear of the body. I figured the AMT would look better in the AMT body so I cut the sides off the bucket and sanded until it fit between the Revell sides. That all worked very well and the Revell dash even fits! Eventually it will be a Tan leather color with maybe a little wood if that fits.

I'm flattered you liked my grille idea enough to use it, Mike, and very happy it worked well for you.

Those taillights are nice. I really like how this is coming together.

This is pretty minor but it's my last primer check after all the little bodywork things were cleaned up ... lower hood rear edges meet the body better, grill touches ( a few areas need some sanding yet from the photos), just the top front of doors need scribing now. The wheels haven't been on for awhile and I fit the engine after these photos. The oil pan hits the road so it needs to be shimmed up little by little. First I need to get a new 3/64 drill bit that fits the engine mount pins. Getting the final fit on the engine all around and all the accessories inside that hood will take a bit of work and my next task.

The elements are fitting together pretty well.

This is going to be pretty spectacular completed.

Been working on the SHO engine mostly. I had to relocate it to allow the fan to fit and raise the engine as it was dragging on the ground. This is the air intake with a K&N filter. The pipe out the manifold needed to be longer but it was already superglued in so I just extended it with a plastic tube and another piece of the plant wrapping wire. Most will be tucked under he firewall so it needed to stick out more. I'll probably wrap the tube with wire to simulate rubber.

The intake tubes on the manifold will be painted with a transparent red over the silver.

This is just a photo needed to zoom in and check paint touch up needed. Yes, there are some needed as usual. I think this scheme will work. I used Tamiya Clear Red on the intake pipes.

Looks great so far, are you going to chop it when you finish the rest of the body mods?
