Looking good. I like the colors and really like the idea of the floral print that you posted. Perhaps not for this build, but it would work out cool for an interior pattern. Keep it up. It's looking great.

Later-

Yeah I'm not feeling the floral either on this (keeping the idea around for future build tho). I'm just gonna go with a street rod feel I think. I need to order a 3inch cowl resin hood for it soon.

 

I'm dreading the painting process. The humidity is so horrible here and paint tends to orange peel bad.

 

Anyway, thanks guys!

Mini-Update!

 

I was able to get another coat of primer on the body and some other stuff below.

 

Just need to sand and prime and sand once more then can start to paint body.

Valve covers and top of air filter will be dark purple like the rest of the car. Carb will be aluminum and shifter will be detailed/painted.

This will give me a jump on tomorrow. I plan on sanding, priming and sanding the body, then get the parts above painted. Hopefully I'll get to some of the wiring on the motor. I'm dreading trying to get the distributor together.

 

That's it for now.

I didn't get to all I wanted to but made progress.

 

I got the body sanded. I still need another coat and sand before ready for color.

 

Got the oil pan, rear axle, distributor, and gear shift detailed.

Coil and Oil Filler detailed.

Not sure if I will get to do anything tomorrow or not.

Small Update, No pics.

 

Got the last coat of primer on today. Well, I'll need to do a quick coat on the under side of the body then a quick sand tomorrow.

 

I should be able to get some purple laid down sometime this week, probably Wednesday.

 

Not sure what else I'll get done tomorrow. I'll try to get some engine work done, add plug wires and get front of engine painted/detailed.

 

It'll be my first time adding plug wires and I don't have bits that small i don't think. I'll figure something out on it.

 

I will also be looking into scratch building the shocks. I still need to make the bed cover as well.

 

Anyway, that's all for now.

Micro Update:

 

Got what should be final coat of primer on. Now I'm waiting on it to dry for sanding.

 

I might not get too much more done today due to a car show nearby and I want some inspiration.

Well I didnt get much done due to working and going to a tractor pull. I actually might get a lot done tomorrow unless something major comes up.

 

Expect some pics tomorrow.
