Beautiful build as usual Dave. Your another member who's builds are always a lesson. It's not finished and it's already stunning.

BTW: Love your solution for adjusting the "ride" height!

Thanks again for the comments everyone.

I've got a little bit of progress, taillights are in, speakers are in the front doors, I've repaired/added a bit of rivets and started the woodgrain on the interior parts.

The taillights are rhinestones.

Posted Image

The interior woodwork was done to imitate a burl wood finish. I used a flat brown enamel followed by a wash of dark brown mixed with black acrylic. When the wash was dry, I then went over it again in a random haphazard pattern about 3 times to get the burl finish. I still need to clear it.

The rivet details.

Door speakers.

A couple of shots of the rear with the tailgate sort of in place.

Still waiting on the Uschi decals for the woodgrain.

A little more progress. The headlights are in and the windsheild has been modified and checked for fit.

The grille is just sitting in place, it's not mounted yet.

Posted Image

The windshield is split with a gasket molded around it.

Posted Image

This obviously wont work with a chopped top, plus I wanted a smooth molded in one piece look. I started by wet sanding the gasket and center piece flush with some 320, then 600 and up to 12000 followed by Novus 3, 2, and 1 I heard a slight crack when sanding with the 320, it split right in the center on the top, you won't see it once it's mounted. It sure made the rest of the sanding and polishing a bit nerve wracking.

Here's what I wound up with.

Posted Image

It sure has a much cleaner look to it.

I just recently started on a custom '48 woody of my own, and I thought it was going to be pretty extreme. Not compared to this one! Guess I'm headed back to the drawing board... B)

Still waiting on decals and stalled for the moment. Had a snow day today, so among getting caught up with some projects, I started one that's been in my mind for quite some time. I didn't like it at first and thought the idea was a mistake, but after a little cutting here and bending there I'm starting to like it. I'm toying with making it a Woody too. Or would that be Woody 2?

Finally some progress. I got the woodgrain decals, unfortunately I made the base for the panels a bit too dark, You really have to look to see them. I've got the frames about done, just a few spots I need to darken up in the jambs, then the final clear for the wood.
