UPDATE TIME!! :rolleyes: Ok, I wasn't gonna bore you guys with the 4 days of styrene putty drying time, then 2 days of sanding, bondoing in the low spots, and sanding some more. I have to say I'm rather happy with the results. I do see some spots that need fixed. The saying is true. No Two Hearses are ever alike! LoL Enough of my blabbin'. On to the pics.

I scribed all door lines, trim lines, etc after all the sanding was done. Then I sprayed it with 1 light coat of primer and sanded it to find the spots that needed work. This is the result of 3 light coats and one good coat of "Filler/Sandable Primer" by DupliColor. Then a light polish to smooth it out nicely.

Ok, I got the side trim done! Here's how I did it. ;D

First, I took the "stock" trim and lined it up on the car.
Posted Image

Then Cut the front and rear door sections free.
Posted Image

Then I trimmed the new quarter panel trim.
Posted Image

Then I took another "stock" trim from another kit and cut it into 3 pieces. Only need the front door piece.
Posted Image

Ok, Need to locate the pin in relation to the body and make a new hole on the body for this to fit into.
Posted Image

Posted Image

Then place body trim in position and cut the excess off the rear secton.
Posted Image

Posted Image

And now you have the side trim for the extended body! Easy! LoL Just repeat for the passenger side.
Posted Image

Enjoy till next update! B)

A thanx to those who have commented on this build! It helps keep me motivated on this build. Havin' a li'l difficulties on the rear door hinge but I think I'm close. You can also see where I'm fixing the roof as well above the front doors. Enjoy! B)

Wow, what a build! Excellent work, and very nicely done, too. With the demise of the Town Car, I could see a 300 becoming the new standard-bearer for the hearses, at least until Cadillac and/or Lincoln get their heads glued back on right.

Jason, that is going to be a great hearse! Of course, you do have some more detail work and clean up to do. There is a crease that needs to be filled. If a crease needs to remain, I suggest the crease stays horizontal, perhaps disappearing as it transitions from front to back.
Also, the triangular area needs to be cleaned up.

Don't give up! This has great possibilities.

Well, I've pulled this wreck out of the box to see what I can save. I had to make new sides out of one solid piece of styrene as in one move the rear body work was crushed, but the body held together like Fort Knox. So here's the improved rear body work. Now the very rear of it is going to prove challenging but I'm sure I can pull it off. LoL Think I'm going to need a new rear door. It'll get sorted.

Better sculpted side panels that blend better with the body:

Cool project!  I never saw this thread before so it's all new to me! And I've never seen a 1:1 either. Looking forward to seeing it completed.

Thanx everyone. The comments are most welcomed as they help keep me motivated.

 

Well, the rear end came together better than I thought. I have the rear braces glued in tight, corners cut, shaved, and contoured. The roof is done the same way, and I cut the door opening a tad bigger than the hole to give me a door jamb for the door to set against.

This is to show how much longer than stock the car is.

And a couple of mock up shots where its on it's wheels. Not bad if I say so myself.
