Well, we'll see how the mudding goes. I got the body finished less the mud, so stay tuned in, and happy THANKSGIVING to everyone!

Doctor I've been waiting for the pics and you sure delivered! That paint is glass smooth. I cant help but love this build. The creativity and originality is off the hook. Not much else I could say but bring on more pics! Thanks as always for sharing.

All right, the body is done sans the mud . . . I added a few interesting decals just to spice it up . . .

Here's a mud-level perspective shot. LOL!

The chassis, the interior, and the body are not glue together and won't be. I like to take things apart and look at them . . . LOL.

But some of these shots show the body sitting a bit forward, but trust me it sits just right . . . .

Can anyone guess where the grill is from?

I still have to add a couple of more wires out of those carb stacks . . .

I think the mud is going to bring the whole build together!

Now that all I have left to do on this build is fling the mud, I am hesitating. Does this mean I am turning into a SHINY ADDICT? LOL!

Looks great Doc. You have done the workers at the Toledo assembly plant proud . Yes they built the Willys car there before they built Jepps for the war effort.

Thanks, Andy, and thanks Donn. We'll see what happens in 2013. Only the new year will tell what kind of madness will run in my blood. Plus, there are rumors of an impending article in MCM that is supposed to rock the styrene world! LOL. Well, I hear it's like some sort of World Wrestling Federation "DEATH CAGE" type of match . . .

I looked here and didn't find anything about this RUST VS SHINY all-out brawl! ;) :lol: B) :rolleyes: :blink:

If you were'nt the master at weathering, I would say leave it shiny and clean the tires. The eyeball needs to stay with. Another master piece, I love it!!!

Cool build either way, doc. Of course, I prefer SHINY :) :) :)

It's Friday!! Pizza, popcorn, and WWE Smackdown. Spent the day building. Does life get any better?
