Thanks gray07.

Didn't get to the color coat. Hope to at least get it in primer. School started today and ran out of time...

The cool factor in this one is through the roof. Great modifications and phantomi-za-tion! I'm assuming you are going shiny with this one, right?

Thanks Brian, Doc and C Betts. Greatly appreciate all of the comments!

I think this one warrants a nice shiny coat of something to help it really stand out. For some reason, UPS brown is asking to be used on this one. I have some Folk Art Coffee Bean acrylic that would fit the bill.

Color coat on. Wasn't sure if I'd like the brown. After some Future to shine it up, I think it'll look good. Need to get the bed sprayed tomorrow.

Thanks guys! Future is on. Might need another coat. Old paint lines are showing through in a few spots as I didn't strip it. Hoped the sanding between primer coats would have done it. So will most likely try to make it look like a DIY garage rod as opposed to a shop rod with flawless finish. Will get pictures later. Karate testing now, so won't be home for a while.

Nice project. It's always hard to decide what to do with a 41 Plymouth and I think you nailed it.

Thanks Wayne and Jason. Greatly appreciated!

Working on sanding out, hopefully for the last time, putty on the rear fenders. Then get the bed in color and clear early tomorrow and hopefully together for the most part for a show and contest on Sunday.

Latest update. Had to strip the brown. Wasn't looking so hot. Only had black primer, so that's how it sits now. Also got these resin whitewalls in a trade w/other stuff with Danny (85gt4bbl302). The wheels are from the Monogram 55 Ford Panel. Had to sand the outside edge to get them to fit inside. Still need a little work to fit perfectly.

This one is a little dark...
