The center console is made and painted top body color and has the AC dials, also you can see in the circle part is where the custom shifter will be. In the dash you can see the gauge plate is now made and is two tone black. This will house 3 gauges and then there is 3 more smaller ones in the center of the dash and have to make the DVD player screan to fit into the bottom part.

Just put on the first of 4 coats of black to all the parts and body and chassis, This will give the bronz a good base once done and also the chassis will have 3 diffrent colors plus the flat black to the high lights in the rear inner fenders and also parts of the chassis and front roll pan.

Center console with ac nobs and center dial put in. Now need to paint them black, You can see the inner fenders as after the clear coat is done this will be done in all flat black and the lower spots in the inner fenders be tape off so it gives a embossing look to it.
Chassis with the first of 3 coats of 7900 Du Pont clear, showing off the gloss black with the Toyota 4U3 Sunset Bronze.

Making the shifting lever, this does have a leather boot on it that fits down in the hole in the center console. The shift nob is sanded down to have 5 flat spots and also has 3 custom holes in the lever its self.put together and ready to be installed.



Chassis after having the flat black put on. This is a Du Pont Hot Rod black that does not have to have any clear coat as when it drys it's very hard and not easy to chip away, Polishing out the low parts back to gloss black.

With all the high spots done and the full rear of the chassis now complete done in paint. The front roll pan I will show in the next pic.

Runt getting the 1st of 3 coats of HYUNDAI S2R Red Allure and its really nice to work with such thin paint. This really looks good as it's not a flake that is too big out of scale and not over'ly flashy when the clear is added to it. Next to the Bronze it really pops out.

thank you, I just like to make it a nice part of my collection but trouble is RPM Hotrods already has spoken for it once it's done and been seen out west next year. Think the guys from RPM as they just have made this build such a blast doing it with all there help.

Sorry no updates this weekend as I took the weekend off for a show on saturday and then just some alone time today. This week is all new tooling and setting up the machines for some work and getting the nice little parts made for this car. 1 of the biggest things I will be machine on is the Una Ball Joints and studs. This is really going to be fun and also getting the gagues clusters made up for both this car and two other builds as i'm doing one set I might as well do the others now then later.
