painted the steering wheels blue metallic (2k paint) to resemble the metalflake ones you can buy
also did the grille shell that color , some engine parts will get that blue as well

:)

painted in the shower huh!?  Must not be married! LOL


yep i'm married but .. that shower room is still old like when we bought the house and it wil be relocated so its not really ...
i do spray in cartbox boxes and make sure nothing gets on the tiles but when it would its not that big of a deal
and easy to clean of tiles..

off course when i build a fancy bathroom i wont be spraying in there lol


today the clear coat was dry and man it turned out great , really smooth as glass no dust in it and no orange peel in both the blue or the clear

close up good to see the decal under the clear in this pic

a lousy pic but the radiator shell is done in metallic blue and some engine parts will get that same color , dressed up with a bunch of chrome

I'm a little unclear here. Are the wood panels all cut, shaped and ready to go on? Or is that still left to do?

no thats all still left to do , first i wanted everything painted and sure everything fits and is in place , i will complete everything like the engine and details , then keep the body loose and then make the wood on that , i will just need to messure and build up the wooden body piece by piece ..

its not like i have done it before , but now i'm glad i went about it this way , if i would have made the wood on the first it would be a lot of masking work .

also making whole pre made panels to put on isnt really doable , i made everything curved so i really have to glue on and fix it piece by piece so it really is fluch against the inner body (so to speak)


after dinner  started to paint all the chrome , steady hand required :lol:

 

on all pics it seems to have two tones , like discoloration , thats actually due to the lights hitting it from the ceiling , irl its just all the same blue

9691_233147013484883_638207781_n.jpg

did several front parts chrome

16778_233146990151552_1076576501_n.jpg

loosly dryfitted the wheels , tyres are from the kit and the rims i used from a 32 roadster kit , i really think they match the style and theme well

tyres stil need work like sanding and stuff , rims also will get some details

150681_233146970151554_1708890672_n.jpg

painted all the small dash details , hmmm those where tiny , i used a wooden pin with a point (meat pin) to do those

 3821_233146953484889_2030377318_n.jpg

loose dryfit with the body

28774_233146916818226_606706800_n.jpg

 

i'm thinking of doing some white on the seats

6339_233146893484895_2019985626_n.jpg

i will do a lot of small details later and off course the woody body B)

I see you had Von Dutch lay some stripes on your firewall and Deuce Grill shell!  The one on the firewall is a piece he did in the '50's when he was sorta normal if you could call him that!  Von Dutch titled it "Harvey, Shaken By Crossbreeding". 

 

One interesting thing that he did with a lot of his stripes is that the layout would often be one contiuous stripe rather than a stripes added to one another to make up  the layout.  In the end Kenneth Howard AKA Von Dutch was one strange individual!

hey , no thats just a spray can silver , its well known in the modelbuilding scene in  holland and a lot of people use it , its cheap , flows awsome and never runs , always a 100% great result .
alcad is maybe nicer but this is just so handy
 
the brand is gamma , thats a big diy store with stores all over the country (well you would not call holland a country lol)
the blue on the body and the clear is also from gamma .. all the paints just spray amazingly good
and the best thing is my wife works there so i always get 20% off (discount) :)

i used higher rocker covers with deuce casted in them..
the edges are red because i had to smooth them and they come from a red casted kit.

well .......................... :)
the edges are round wood so when its all dry i will sand the edges flat with the other wood but on the inside it then will run nice and round
all the wood work is rough some parts i let stick out a bit so i can sand curves in it
the rear darker bar of wood sits loose because i first have to make a round piece of wood along the wheel well.
thats the hardest part i almost could bend some wood but every time i almost got the bend it broke , also making it wet didnt help.
so now i will add some strips together and cut it out round on the flat side , hope that will do the trick

spend some good hours today , filing , sanding , fitting wood :lol:

on this pic its still real rough , i masked the blue front body off with tchick alu heating tape and filed the wood alonf the front body in the same shape

531222_234355546697363_2001454683_n.jpg

on this pic you can see that the wood body is curved both  horizontal and vertical

206468_234355530030698_1230815021_n.jpg
 

then started the first round of sanding , filing etc to get some more shape and make it less rough , needs loadsmore but now the shape is starting to show

418751_234355533364031_2000353251_n.jpg

from very thin wood witch i got by peeling the layers of the scale pallet i was able to make a panel on top behind the rear seats , thats already flattened now flush with the frame (not on this pic)

534293_234355606697357_1597163975_n.jpg

then i realised that same stuff could work around the wheel wells and it did , i was able to make the bend without breaking the wood , well at least in the end i broke like 3 peices before i got both wells covered

540971_234355600030691_144602011_n.jpg

then build up the wood work some more

293996_234355596697358_2132542424_n.jpg

dryfit , now underneith the door there will be a piece of wood later on and on the rear wide section i will let the horozotal bar run through with that same thin wood

this was the easyest way to do this , filling in all those shapes was pretty challenging
