I'm happy to see you doing this! I have the original kit and have been meaning to build it. Hopefully your restoration will inspire me!

Thanks guys! I hope that my rebuild will influence you to go ahead and build those '33 Ford Eliminators you have stashed away, awaiting to be built someday! Maybe someday is sooner than you think...

Thanks Shane, Bill, and Carl!
After doing much research to start with, I have read of the finicky body panels and build fit of this kit and many of those were not finished. I can't remember having these issues when I first built this kit, but hey...that was a long time ago. Now I find that the engine side panels are a finicky fit and so I have gone and glued them on and tape them in place until the glue has had sufficient time to set up.
The one thing I cannot find are interior pictures of the Eliminator. I'll leave the interior detailed as I originally did back when I first built the kit. For the most part, I am in the home stretch with the Eliminator. Hopefully, I'll finish it today.
More to come...
