Dick, yours is radical but I think you should think about a new neighborhood or locking up the cat at night.
Busy weekend for me but I got the rad cut and mounted lower and found a better set of wheels.

The idea is to make it look like something brought out of a junkyard, keeping it somewhat stock and modified at the same time.

Lots of cutting, filing and sanding to fit the interior bucket onto the Revell '32 chassis between the rear fenders.
First mock-up with wheels from the parts box.
This 1931 Model A was started before I joined the CBP but is almost finished now and has been taking a lot of my building time.

Engine and chassis almost finished too, hope to get the model completed before I head off to Canada for Xmas to see my family.

The masking pulled up quite a bit of the original Light Blue Pearl so tried the flat colour instead - guess I didn't clean the resin body sufficiently -oops! A small speck came off tonight, but this can be touched up (I hope)
