You guys looked like you were having fun so I thought I would join the party. I'm slowly working on this '05 GT that's being made into a custom Shelby GT-350R with the help of a multi-piece resin kit I "fished out of the 'bay." The hood scoop was molded closed, so I opened it up with a Dremel tool. I also had to do quite a bit of grinding on the lower rocker/exhaust skirts and the front spoiler to make them fit right, but I made them work.

I know the feeling, we moved from a 1 acre of land, with quads, riding mover, trailers, sheds, to a 4 bdr house with a two car garage and no rv gate, in a hoa community

I got the resin pieces from eBay. They show up ocassionally but havent seen them and a while. The seller had some issues and has since been removed. I don't know who did the casting.

I feel ya! :wacko:

Well,we're here,moved over the weekend-the big part anyways,now comes the sorting of what to keep,what to donate,what to sell,what to trash to fit that 2 story ouse into this trailer,LOL! :D Plus my model bench got damaged in the move (it's ok,only a drawr tract was ripped loose,I'lldrill newholes,whenever I find my drill,LOL!) :blink: My spinal issuse flared up (expected them too,though),so I'm going to be down several days. Once we get settled I'll get this one ('10 GT Ragtop) done and get on a few more projects I've been meaning to do...living here,it ain't like cycling will any longer prevent my sitting at the bench,LOL (maybe canoeing,swimming,fishing,etc,once we score a canoe,the lake/our access boat dock in only a 5 minute walk down the hill B) ).

OK,gunna go pop another (prescribed) pain pill and stretch out a few,LOL! But anyways,we made it,as did all model stuff,and we gots internet/cable all hooked up :)

Got out in the new workshop before it got blazing hot this morning (uninsulated/no A/C steel buildings tend to get hot this time of year,LOL! :blink: :lol: ) and piddled with tat '10 GT ragtop. Almost done with it (haven't uploaded the pis yet,but will today),despite my hand slipping when detail painting some windshield post trim (such a small spot,I think I'll just leave it so's I can FINISH something,LOL! :P ). I should get it done later tonight when it cools back down :D

While I STILL forgot to spray those daggone side mirrors,LOL,but research did show several 1:1's with matte black units,so I'll spray and install em tomorrow. Other than that,and a tad bit of touch up black on the grille (I see red in a couple spots :P),I'm calling it done...

Apologies for the crappy pic quality,that dang camera I replaced my last one with (at twice it's price,mind you,and on sale at that :blink: :angry: ) doesn't like indoor,red,or indoor pics with red in it,sigh. I'll see about some outside pics soon. Nice simple kit,looks decent (methinks the tires are still a bit chunky,Revell,but getting better after 6 years of chunky Mustang tires :lol: )

If it were my thread,I'd just leave it be...I know that if I have...how many Revell '06-'10 Mustang kits was it?.....others do too. Eventually interest in other projects (and summertime) will wane and it'll thrive again...be a real shame to lose it :)
