Temp 1 at trying to install the first headliner..
Posted Image
Posted Image

At this point, I knew I made a mistake an used the wrong kind of glue.. oops. So I waited too the elmers glue had set up an dried an I then took an removed the headliner back out much easier an with no mess either from glue.
Posted Image

I did make another temp on a 4th headliner an used spray glue which worked very very well.. I get photos today of that an post them soon as I can.

Hi you all, well I been busy with this project. Jump mostly from working on the headliner to trying to get the suppenion in the rear together and also the front hubs anrims to built on. Still have work to do the stuff yet though. I been rebuilding well scratch building parts to like the model kit parts that broke on me or I had to chop apart. I been working on the first row of leaf hangers an brackets.

First few times with headliners.. mostly trail runs..

The leaft hangers/brackets I am scratch building an at times using the real kit pieces as part of the rebuild as I can.

Here is one of two from hub units, I took an held the rein hub unit to the tire on the inside an used a small drill bit (two of them, one small one for marking, 2nd one the size of the lug base) to mark the locations of each stud. Then I drilled out the hub unit just alittle to set the lugs just a hair down inside then I place a layer of masking of the outer face of the rim an open the holes up by using the excto blade. I then place well brush on some vasoline then I took an placed the lugs into the rim on the out side looking in. I then used epoxy on the resin hub only on the outer side just where the lugs would be in. I then place the hub onto the outer face of the rim over the lugs an left set for almost a day. I took an drilled out the lug holes in the rim after I had removed the hub with the lugs in so the rim would be easier mounting off an on.

Awesome work! Cool ideas! I like the combination of different materials. I was never keen of functional lighting on a model but this may change my mind.
