Thx for the compliment Moparfan but I am by far not the best modeler around there are soo many I look up to here in the forums that have far better skills than myself, Mr Obsessive, Scale-Master, John Teresi,TreeHugger Dave. These are just to name a few, and im still learning. as far as the A-arms go Im the type of modeler whos sees shapes and materials, the A-arms were made from piano wire that can be brought at your local hobby store, and very then sheet metal(also bought at my LHS) these were also my first attemp at welding parts together with solder. Oh and I also used brass tubbing. I know this doesnt tell how I made them as it is rather complexed and it would probably be easyer for me to do a tutorial on it. Hey maybe i'll put one together. Anyway thats enough of my jibberish, I hope you have a great day! :)

I am looking forward to it dude keep up the great work

That is a serious build man. Keep up the good work. This has given me inspiration to build the two 58 Chevy's I want to build once I get my Rod shop off the ground. One is a 4 door cruiser like I had in high school (and I am only 32 :lol: ) with a triple carbed hi-po 235 blueflame I6 and a 3 speed an the tree with OD. The other is a 2 door SC with a twin rotrex supercharged EFI 409 backed by a 6 speed and a Halibrand Quick Change rear.

well heres the update i promised ya, I was able to get the racing harnesses completed and on the seats. Im gonning to show you how to get a more realistic looking belt.

I start with the Racing harness kit by Detail Master, they make a really nice kit and you can use the kit by itself and have some really nice harnesses but if you want something a lil more detailed then try this....
Posted Image

Instead of using the black tape material that comes with the kit I use medical tape from Johnson&Johnson it has the same texture as the real racing harnesses and it looks great once your done. Just check it out for yourself and you tell me what you think.
Posted Image

First layout a few strips of the medical tape on some plastic like a sandwhich bag,then use the patterns that come with the kit, place the patterns on a few strips of the medical tape and continue to follow the kit instructions untill you get all the belts cut out.....
Posted Image

Once all the belts are cut out, dont remove any of them yet first you have to color them the color you need. I need black belts so I used a black Sharpie, You can also use a blue, red, green, or whatever color you need. be sure to use a sharpie because it actually dyes the tape the color your using, and you dont end up covering up detail with paint. (plus paint gets hard)

What a cool idea! Just wanted to add that it has to be SILK tape, as there are a number of different types of medical tape available. Don't ask me how I know! B)

Now start trimming up your belts and putting your parts together. Look at how good these more realistic belts look compared to the black tape stuff that comes with the kit. Oh and the plastic bag is still on the back of you belts if you pull it off now you have self-adhesive belts and you can apply them however suits you. well let me know what you think.

Heres the finished seats enjoy.... B)

the belt tip is very interesting ;)

any problems with the thickness of the tape and the plastic bag together going through the slots? i've mangled a few sets of harnesses trying to assemble them :lol:


Dave

Not at all Dave it slips right tru just make sure your diameter it correct B)

Excellent work, but you knew that, this is really coming along very nice. Each little sub assemble is a model unto itself....just the way it should be. Great craftsmanship on every little detail. Just amazing...it will be a very impressive model when complete.

Dang it, he did it again, I blinked and he posted something! LOL

Romell, man, bro, that so far looks down right beautiful man. I love your attention to detail. But if you don't mind me asking, how much did the harness set you back?

Hey fellas latest update ... Just got some small detail parts done in the first picture you'll see the digital Tach which will mount on the dash. also in the first picture you'll see the four Wilwood break calipers if you look closely you may be able to see the extra detail in the calipers.
Posted Image

in the next pic you'll see the finished hood and in the back theres the radiator I made and electrical plug for the motor.
Posted Image

you'll notice in this pic that the rims have been removed thats because I wont be using them and I need to change the whole break setup.
