If only modern-day Pirates had this kind of style and swagger.

Okay as the weather has turned nasty (humid) for anything but painting of flats, the Jolly Roger is back on the bench. My big delay in this one lately is a design issue I was having with the front seats. I couldn't find anything I liked or that fit the theme decently. I have since found something that might do. More on that later. I have gone ahead and built the chassis and started the engine. I will do minimal detailing on this engine. Just the ignition wiring most likely. I'd like to have this ready for the IPMS Nats in August.

If I haven't stated before, the paint job will be all flats (sorry Jim), black with a treasure map mural which will take up the entire surface of the car. I'm going to put the pirate flag on the trunk lid and a compass rose on the hood.

There'd better be. The only criticism I have of this project so far is the lack of recent updates!

This is my pal Zuzu, my constant workshop companion. We rescued him from some pretty lousy conditions & poor health and he's never stopped showing us how much he appreciates it.

Quick update. The body is in flat black tonight. I'm going to let that cure for at least a couple three days because I will have a lot of masking to do for the mural and if I peel up paint with my masking I'm going to scream like a little girl, throw myself to the floor and throw a tantrum. And no one wants to see that. I still have some engine work to do, my rum barrel, my pirates chest, my skeleton. Not to mention the mural designs which I will draw on paper first.

ALSO- IF ANYONE HAS A BEER STEIN SHIFTER FROM THE TOM DANIELS BEER TRUCK, I'D LIKE TO GET MY HANDS ON TWO. WHAT USE IS A BARREL OF RUM WITHOUT A MUG TO DRINK IT FROM?
