Thanks guys, those kind words are greatly appreciated.
Well here is a picture of the Driveshaft Loop. As I did on my Nova build, this is scratchbuilt from Beer Can Aluminium. I'm still planning to add a couple of bolt & nut ends to it, if I can find any...

I got some clear over the body Today. I hope it looks good after the clear coat is completely dry, but at least I liked it as wet. Now I will let it dry properly before I will start polishing it, but on the meanwhile, there is some engine and chassis detailing to do...

Niki, The body looks great!
What brand of paint and clear did you use?
Posted 25 May 2013 - 08:00 PM
Thanks Michael! I used paint and clear by Maston, which makes good quality paints that are not designed only for Model Kits or anything else, but they are meant to be used for whatever the buyer wants. Those can be found from the hardware stores. I don't know if there are Maston paints in the USA though. But these work well, I've painted whole lot different kinds of things with these paints.

A little update for the Torino. I clear coated the Hood and it turned out pretty good. It is wet in the picture, and now it's not that shiny, but pretty shiny and smooth anyway. I will polish the body parts next week, I guess. Also I removed all unnecessary stuff from the Fan Belt system, so now there is only one belt from Engine to Alternator. I test fitted that on place, and everything fits. I need to make a bracket for the Alternator before I can install anything. Also the Shifter got the red LineLock switch on it. Still I need to wire it.

Here is a picture of the Shifter installed and then I wired the Line Lock button. Still need to scratchbuild the Line Lock to the Firewall, but that's coming later. Also I installed the Center Console on its place again.
