the wood had goty its first 3 layers of clear , started a two tone in the interiour , wanted to resemble a sort of metalflake apolstery in the middle

here you can see the round shapes i sanded in the wood

318077_235321069934144_2138463975_n.jpg

there is some discoloration but that will go away its from the firs layers of clear soking into the wood a bit

564512_235321036600814_261864711_n.jpg

also did the dash in metallic blue , tiny thing and luckely i was able to get it tight (the outer line) on the clear coat layer that was on there

165081_235321086600809_1454951623_n.jpg

maybe i will do some of the dark blue on the doorpanels later , bit cramped now to paint there but maybe the armrests and the upper line under the wood will be possible to paint still
next time i def will keep the interiour loose and pre paint but because this was nessecery due to the wooden outer skin i wnet about it this way..

for me it was a first with real wood so i had to just try something

Looking good Rich!

I have built quite a few wood bodies in the past. Even have a thread here on MCM forums... but a lot of the photos are missing due to Fotki swapping servers. Something I am currently looking into and attempting to repair.

Keep checking back and eventually they will probably all come back one way or another.

because unintentionally it kind of got the surf feel / beach feel along the way i decided to make a wooden bodyboard for the rod

a surfboard would be a bit big and well a boyboard is something different :)

 

a example from google i found > now there are loads of shapes and some pretty square , i took some styling dues from 2 different boards and wanted to keep it basic so it looks like a bodyboard instead of ending up with something that looks like a surfboard too small for the scale

i used the same wood as i did for the body and made smaller strips and glued dark and light wood together , let it stick ou (the dark wood) and flattened it

553184_235381829928068_745494149_n.jpg

cut the basic shape

602921_235381849928066_1652797880_n.jpg

and gave it some mild curves

388313_235381893261395_1453501693_n.jpg

did that in a hour or so , now its clear coated and drying

i was home early today and the sun was shining a bit , so i took the opportunity to make some betetr shots .

shot them on a painters canvas outside

the previous posted pics where all shot in the evening , these all come out way better

 

the clear on the wood dryed up great , no more stains from soaking into the wood

Looks great, only thing i see is the master cylinder looks to be upside down. The reservoir should be facing the bottom of the floor.
