how hard was it to fit the firewall to the body, im about to start on that with mine and noticed i have a major gap on each side and a good bit of cutting and forming on the edges. also should i fit it to the pan 1st to double check fit?

Blueoval92,
I fitted the firewall to the pan

then added a filler strip as per the 1:1 car. Dont wrap the ends down like I did..leave them loose and it will naturally fill the gap.
Posted Image
then when I added the inner fender strips it decreased the gaps even more.

When I push the pan up and glue it in, the gaps will disappear, hope that helps.

Looking forward to see how yours come out.

cheers

Ian

i have only seen the no door panel trick once before and it's on one in my collection. I like the door panels on yours much better than mine and others builders should give it a whirl...not as easy as it looks though.

Thanks for the positive comments so far guys...

 

Time to start paint and weathering.

Pretty happy the way the chassis turned out.

I am a fan of rust and grime & the aesthetically abandoned automobile.  Love the detail, top notch work! The bail on the new master cylinder looks much better.  May I have more please Sir?!

H Road Runner,

Thanks for nice comments..

The wet greasy grime is a mixture is a mixture of artist oils 'Mars Black" and some scrap booking embossing powder.

Really sharp modeling here. I enjoyed your "imagineering" on the inner door structures. Looks great, looking forward to seeing this old war liner completed.
