Here's a few pics of my latest. Had quite some time on this one, frame was severely warped out of the box. Lots of rubber bands, super glue, and heat finally got it close enough to work.

Sweet! Nice job. What is your interior colors? Also, not a criticizm, just fyi, the carbs should be a brass/gold combo, or aluminum in color, instead of black.

Not criticizing the "not critcizing", but back when every car had carbs from the factory the carbs were always just old gray cast metal. Looked just about like those do. The nice shiny carbs are a modern aftermarket thing.
Excellent build. I also like that subdued sleeper look. All business!

Thanks everyone for the comments. I try to duplicate factory correct colors to the best of my ability, Mr. Moto you are correct on the for the carbs, I used plastikote cast gray to duplicate the correct color, aluminum paint is just way to shiny. As far as the interior color goes, 62 SuperDuty's had a tri color interior. I just went with a two tone one to keep from having to buy three shades of blue. I covered the lighter part with white primer and the dark part with black primer, then shot krylon fusion blue over it. That way I achieved a two tone interior using just one color of blue.

Clever idea. How about a photo so we can see the results?
