I don't think this has been covered, or at least I haven't been able to find it...what scale is this?

When you say you're breaking out the bug sprayer... are you saying you literally use a bug sprayer to paint with? Wow, even your "airbrush" is scratchbuilt!  :lol:

Wheels are INCREDIBLE! I've been following almost since the beginning and the process has been long but it's paying off. Keep it up.

I've been following this build since before I was even a registered member and have been very impressed with everything I have seen you do but those wire wheels are something to behold. You should consider a tutorial on how to do that. As it is, I am going to have to study those particular posts in great detail to completely understand how to do it and get those kind of results.

Finished steering wheel. It is a little rough but will only be seen from a distence since the inside will be enclosed so I think it will show just fine,

The following are the outside door handles, I made them up in pairs the will be cut apart later,

Thanks to all that are following this build. Will be painting some green today and finishing the engine.

I am also working on getting together the K3, that will have a lot more information and have a lot more of how to's along with it.

Thanks to all those that are keeping track of the build...............I know it is taking a long time but it is comming together more now and in about a week I might be done. A lot of little details to do and have to send off more lights and trim to the chrome shop...................... :rolleyes:

The paint really helps.

 

Anyone not impressed by this is either in the wrong hobby or simply has no appreciation for hard work.
