First build in years...Finally cleaned the bench off!

Some may disagree with me, but it doesn't matter pre-painted or not.
Sometimes a quick build renews our enthusism for the hobby
What matters is that your building again!
The hobby is about having fun! So have fun forget, the politics.
You have added some great details.
I love those wheels with the Black and Red color combo!
Keep up the good work!

I've been so darn busy I haven't done much. I did get my Sirius radio boombox working in the hobby room. That should make it more user friendly

The more I work on this simple project the more I'm remembering how things go wrong due to thinking too much. After assembling the interior I regret not foiling the painted on interior trim (more work....) or adding the other end of the seats belts from the seat back and add the mounting hardware on the floor(more work....) or removing the cast-in rear deck center speaker and re-finishing the deck (more work....) etc.
THIS is why we have so many started projects. I'm making a list of all the second-thoughts I'm having and I'll apply those details into the next eventual "epic" build we all attempt. This is supposed to be a quick build for the past 2 weeks..... I want to finish it.
Rant off. Back to the workbench.

....OK, three pieces. The point is I'm making time & progress. Not much, but progress.
I'm off today. More to follow later on.

All I've done so far is make a set of mufflers for the planned dual exhaust I'm making.
I have a post on how I made them in Tips & Tricks

OK, fast forward 15 months or so..... back to the Edsel.
As was originally planned as a way to ease back into building hit the wall last year. With house projects, work, playing with the 1:1 toy, family, etc. it sat & sat. I keep reading the forum and buying stuff, but the build stopped. Until this morning.
Me & the Wife went out shopping and stopped by the hobby shop. I couldn't resist and bought the `68 Hemi Dart kit. My ever supportive Wife smiled and asked how the Edsel was doing. Busted.... She suggested I finish it. She's right.
