thnx m8 and hhmm no i only do one project at a time , in fact when i was doing the garage i did not start any car build :)
now i took a break from the garage to build some cars , but i really only do one at a time and finish it completly and then take out a new kit ..
works best for me :lol:



dryfitted the engine

526992_284101418389442_1846362301_n.jpg

hated the way the valvecovers came out so i took some corvette ones with the chevy logo those where not high and by shaving some off the ones glued on the block made the nbew chrome ones on top of the old ..
the old where to glued to remove so using low covers worked pretty good

521899_284101478389436_930386889_n.jpg

painted the chevy logo on the center of the aircleaner housing black keeping the logo copper , that was tiny
then handpainted the inner circle red , really pops and ads realism i think

good vieuw on the distributor , sadly when in the engine bay you cant see a whole lot of it anymore

then it was time to do some painstaking painting , again all done by hand with black enamel paint ..

this time did the whole engine bay black , hated the white and i think the engine will pop more in a blank background

also did the roof again in copper metallic

thnx :)

well i tried bmf on the rims but that was not perfect , then some chrome paint with the handbrush , that looked more like grey ..
so i ended up doing the rims completly black leaving the outer edge copper , i really liked this look

11654_284523468347237_760073587_n.jpg

the sticking out thing in the lip is a valve thing to add air that will be chrome later on

535866_284523478347236_1900331789_n.jpg

took the battery and made a bracket , some wiring and a decal , was all balck at first but the whole engine bay is black ..
so that would not pop and a lot of batterys are white plastic on the side so i tried to replicate that look

557869_284620228337561_1791050412_n.jpg

a dryfit to see how the engine looked in the black engine bay , bit dark on the pic irl it looks better

579676_284620191670898_1353053702_n.jpg

rolling on 20'' :)

536646_284620181670899_764647937_n.jpg'

the cab needed 2 more coats of clear to match the hood better

thnx !!
 
i got way better pics now in daylight and some updates from todays work





with a lot of patience i did the inside of the hood black and also the edge on the bottom .. the springs on the hinges will be done in chrome later on

534791_284977434968507_1651832004_n.jpg

fitted the battery

17430_284977428301841_247564263_n.jpg

now the inside of the hood is black the vents in the front of the hood pop way more (depth)

58490_284977441635173_1301009321_n.jpg

front window rubber black

533406_284977471635170_1819428031_n.jpg

529378_284977488301835_1345192523_n.jpg

with the hood on , because the underside of the edges is painted black it now creates like a darker panelline without being able to see paint it looks black , i liked the effect myself

485149_284977484968502_1692108137_n.jpg

58831_284977511635166_51334213_n.jpg

now some black on the inside of the cab roof is needed and glasswork , got everything dryfitted and so far it really looked good ..
not gonna show then its no supprise when i post the finished pics :P

 

oh and a real wooden floor in the bed , but thats for last

today i painted the rear window rubbers black and painted teh visible top part inside the cab all black

11600_285343311598586_1100178537_n.jpg



made a bed floor from real wood with styrene strips in between , the idea was to make the strips chrome but i liked the matching white , also wanted to do 2 clear coat layers on the wood but now i like the contrast of the matte wood

loose testfit

383170_285343298265254_433861287_n.jpg

glued in

541869_285343314931919_1033242655_n.jpg

551349_285343351598582_1454946808_n.jpg

then made a bed cover and kept in inbetween the side edges

533819_285343364931914_1375661007_n.jpg

this is why the cover is painted in copper metallic to match the roof and make the rear more one with the cab stylewise

well almost done , but still need to do details work

1. window wipers
2. doorhandles
3. make a exhaust system
3. small details in the bed , like toolbox or.....
4. make real nice endpics


i actually never ever taped stuff or painted a real design , the bed cover was the perfect test part

561164_285999011533016_2076875365_n.jpg

sprayed the bedcover and started assembly and soon it was sitting on its wheels

550967_285999018199682_246572066_n.jpg

undercarridge , all the work with painting the wheel well indised underside of cab and bed payed of , the chassi now really pops

543705_285999028199681_1743507600_n.jpg

then i got a big smile , turned out my not well thought over design was actually really cool , just taped something without real thought ..
i love how it ties in everything

554091_285999121533005_1416992431_n.jpg

521979_285999178199666_919578273_n.jpg

554214_285999241532993_2024265231_n.jpg

would be cool to get the copper ford on a trailer behind it !!

534766_285999231532994_2006251874_n.jpg

and last clear coated the bed cover

Wow, sorry I'm jumping in this one a little late, but what a beautiful, classy looking truck.  Great job on making it look contemporary.  I would buy that truck today if I found it on a showroom floor.  Great work.

the clear coat on the bed cover

554933_286021638197420_347594253_n.jpg

63474_286021701530747_2136835460_n.jpg
