Where did everybody go?  I'm still planning on finishing this one. Going to Indy today where I hope to pick up some pipe screen, you know the real fine screen used in pipes. I want to use this for my cowl vent which I have cut open. This is the one thing I feel that has halted my progress.  Now to move on, I hope. Kind of want to build the Rat Roaster next.  Sorry to see this one die, always loved the old AMT '32s.DSC04203.jpg

I just refuse to let this one die until I finish this project.  This was and still is my first community build project.  I robbed some screen from my kitchen faucet for the cowl, stole some tail lights from the AMT '25 T kit, also where the headlights came from.  Started a check off list for this one 7 or 8 things left to do.  Here's some more pictures with my inspiration book.  Hope to have it under glass soon.  Thanks for looking once again.DSC04413_zpseb9d38c6.jpgDSC04411_zps1e61c4f3.jpgDSC04414_zpscf5e839d.jpg

Worked on it a little more but, now my list keeps growing again. :lol:  Plus I don't think anyone is watching. Painted up a jack but, can't seem to get a good close-up. DSC04443_zpsfe268336.jpgMade new spliter bars front and rear from aluminum rod.DSC04442_zps21c75e3c.jpg

I'm still a'buildin for this one, just got side-tracked. Finally found a color I like yesterday, on the Pearl-Ex learning curve right now.

 

Decided on the Caddy mill.

Thanks, Ace- Garageguy, I was beginning to think I was all alone here.  You have the most awesome '32 going that I have seen on here.  I had noticed it on your own thread a while back and just assumed it was finished and I missed it.  Good to have you back!

Wow, glad I stumbled on this thread... I never really gave the amt kits to much of a second look. But this thread has me looking for a few kits..

I personally would like to see it.  You could PM Junkman since it is his thread.  It's a yes from me even if just for inspiration and it's not really a contest, just for fun.  ;)

Got the skull shiftier installed an working on a few other things.  Also made new windshield, I thought the kit one was too thick.  :) DSC04549_zps7dca22ce.jpgDSC04548_zpsaf3059a0.jpgDSC04544_zpsecdf8afc.jpg

Looking at this makes me want to start all over again.  This no longer looks like the original AMT kit.  It's starting to look like a real car I would love to own.  Beautiful work Bill.  :)

There is always something. :mellow:  After I looked at the pictures on here I realized I forgot my steering box.  Am I the only one that does this?
