Anyway, here is the body clearcoated. It turned out pretty good. Now I have to fix those little paint leaks, I didn't want to do it before clearcoat, because I wasn't sure if the clear would react with Blue Enamel Paint... So, it can be done after clear, too. Then polishing and BMF, this should be Done Soon!

I cut off the front of the dash and replicated the framework behind it. I also made up new side panels.
And then I filled out the interior with some assorted debris, the kind of stuff you'd find in a junkard car with no seats. I've noticed such vehicles tend to become makeshift storage sheds of sorts under those kinds of circumstances.

This has been on a hold for a while, but I'm back at it! Now this time it will get finished, I'll promise. I finished the interior, dashboard is painted body color and foiled and decaled. I found no problems with putting this interior together, and this interior is really easy to make look good.
And started Polishing the body.... Top, trunk lid and part of the side is polished...Still long way to go...
