I used some Tamiya "Clear Smoke" to add depth to the grill lights and the spot light. They were cast as one piece in a mold I made from some old Yodel parts.

NIce job G, I like the use of the Impala wheel covers and the Caprice steering wheel ;) :D
The radio and mike look good too, what kit did they come from?,

The radio and siren box were cast in resin. I made a master from the parts in the 71 Ford kit. The mike is scratched from sprue.

Good looking build! Did you have trouble putting the mirrors together on this? I could never get the mirrors to glue together and stay on the vans i built.

Mike I haven't tried the mirrors as yet due to those very issues. I'm thinking dechrome everything, assemble, then paint using foil for the mirror surface. The work vans didn't have chrome mirrors as I recall.

Hi Wayne,

Wonderful van!! The latch and step on the rear are really nice scratch touches. Great decals.

Congrats!
