de rough wood work is done , now its a massive sand job and clearing the wood so it will come to life
then i need to get some interiour stuff started like seats color etc .. then make some doorhandles , truk handle , tails and headlights ...

here you can see the round shapes i sanded in the wood
there is some discoloration but that will go away its from the firs layers of clear soking into the wood a bit
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
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
cut the basic shape
and gave it some mild curves
did that in a hour or so , now its clear coated and drying

weird i can only go on the forst page of every topic on the forum , the rest all give a error screen ..
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
wih the bodyborad , the line will be changed to a tiny poly line , this was a test evrsion with electrical wire
usually you dont take pictures with the sun on the otehr side (against the light) i just tried this and i love how it came out

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.

Wow, that real wood looks just like real wood.
Great job !
