def. not going to do this a lot , maybe a bit of rust here and there
thnx and yes i saw a guy who made leafsprings like that , very cool
here is a loose testfit of the grille , just sitting loose in front of the car will sit a tad higher (not much )
the stuff on the rim whats on the shiny ring needs to be toned down still , thats not staying like that
also will ad a pinstripe like on the dash on the top of the grille ...

fitted a moontank i still had , it was crisp but i roughed it up just a tad to match the roughness of the car better , gave it aa base silver coat .
i will add a fuelcap and fuelline later on
also cleaned up the rims edges some more , gave the axle struts a little silver layer (more washed) and gave the rocker covers
a bit of chrome (only the top layer)

then made a first set up for the fuell line out of the moontank , drilled a hole and glued in a piece of plastic where the grey hose you see fits in , so it has some depth and looks nicer , the plan is to cut the grey hose right after where it comes out so only a tiny bit sticks out and thenm add a thinner fuelhose inside the grey hick hose
maybe i even put on a chrome sidevieuw mirror (top end side of the windowframe) and chrome doorhandles to break the brown)
also will make the sprak plug wires red

I didn't build this but I've owned it for a while. It was nice enough that I didn't dump it into the parts box but it sure could use a rebuild. You've given me inspiration! Yours looks super!
