Your interior is looking good, I like the way you detailed the dash.  Good to see you back at it.  I've been sick the last couple of weeks, I know your pain.

Hello Builders .. Just a small update . Starting to have some issues with this build now.

1 I messed up the paint on the hood.

2 had to take out the wiper motor to fit the air cleaner.

3 Exhaust not sitting right, had to reposition it. but now my crazy glue will not hold in the new spot where i want the anchors to mount. does crazy glue go bad after 3 weeks of first use?

 

This is how she sits now. Just have to paint the interior body around the bottom of the windows. Then panel lines and bmf

Hello Builders . I have just finished painting the head liner. Next step is fix the exhaust or do the panel lines with water color.

The part about the wiper motor, was this due to a kit flaw or maybe the paint?  Just want your opinion.  As far as the BMF, I give up. I spent an entire morning on mine and gave in to silver paint once again. I just can't seem to work out my battle with BMF. Your's is looking good so far.

Hey Ron. about the wiper motor. not sure if its a kit issue or if i mounted the engine wrong. So I am not sure I have not heard any one else saying they had an issue with it.

Sorry to hear about your bmf issues. I am pretty much a rookie at it too. here is a link to some great tutorials .http://www.italianho...s/tutorials.htm

 

preparing the new #11 blade . wish me luck..

Thanks  Andre, I watched the tutorial on BMF and bet I have played it over and over in my head 100 times.  I have followed all of these steps too many times with minimal results.  I may succeed in getting one strip on then the next is a disaster as was the case on my '57.  Time and time again I have chipped paint jobs or worse. I had one piece on and just saw one little place.......rubbed it and my fingernail just scraped it.  The worst part is trying to get this stuff back off. Another problem i have had, there is already a wrinkle in it when I buy it and it just won't rub out. I give up, then it always sucks me back in for one more try.  The only use I have found for it is a little piece under the hood for a clamp or strap.  BMF is not my friend, I will probably always revert back to silver paint. I usually use a Prismacolor pen from Hobby Lobby. It is easy to apply and forgiving. It can be cleaned off with just a little dab of Gojo hand cleaner on a brush with a paper towel or Q-tip to wipe it off. When I get it just right I clear over it.  Anyway that is the end of my rant, sorry. :lol:  :lol:  :lol:
