Straight pins used with the insulation from telephone wire to give some dimension to the heads. Can also be used on the back to hold the pins in.

Excellent progress, John! Didn't know you're building this one until now, needs to start checking this Truck-section more often. Excellent job with the body modifications, you make it look so easy. Keep going.

John.... When you get into working on a project you certainly don't let any grass grow under your feet while working on it do you...??? You are definitely "out of your mind" with getting all the little details done.... Out of your mind in a GREAT way though... Keep it up man... we ALL love it.
