Thank you for all the positive feedback! It is very appreciated! I have made lots of progress this week, the body is sanded and polished, the interior is finished, and I figured out what grille I'll be using.

Simple yet sweet. Some of the slightest alterations bring the greatest results. This build is awesome. Keep going

I have been following this from the beginning and I cannot believe how nice this is. Fantastic work. I love the color and the interior, but the wheel choice is my favorite part. Beautiful build.

Later-

Thank you all for following along and for all the encouragement you all have given meduring this build I really appreciate it! I've been really busy trying to finish it these last few weeks and after several mishaps it is finally done. Here's a few teaser pics until I post the under glass thread.

Sweet build. I'm especially impressed by how well you fitted the front of the top to the windshield frame. That's one of those things that really jumps out if it's not done right. It ALL looks great, and the care, thought and planning really show in this model.
