I use a oil lamp that was use to light a jack-o-lanteren for all my styrene heating needs. They are short and fat and should last for 600 years.
Here i am using my drill to make the twist for the wire conduit that will be coated in crystal clear and painted black. It is easier than the liquid tape but the liquid tape is still one of the most awesome things ever invented.
That is it for now. Hope to have more coming soon.

Wow Gary. The engine looks great! Could not believe all the work you put into the doors too. I just started my 1/12 GT500......I am going to make it into the Super Snake. I already have the hood done (14 hours worth of work!) I'll be starting my own thread on that soon. Great job Gary!

Can I ask how you plan on putting the RideMakerz wheels on the mustang? Reason I ask is because I have an 07 GT500 on the way and I've never been a fan of the OEM wheels. I'm thinking of using some Diecast wheels as replacement. Given that Diecast cars have metal axles and the Revell 07 GT500 doesn't.
Great start to a big build. I've wanted to build this model but trying to get some more experience under my belt. Love your choice of the Foose wheels (I think Foose) and modification you did to them. Door's look great too!!

This is the rear section of the jam and here is the rocker jam that needed to be filled with evergreen
Here is the first layer of many with tamyia grey putty.
Here is the convertible hack job

I changed the color i was gone use to this dupa color blue that another member said looked like the blue that red bull racing uses on the RB6.
It does. I will use it on my Rb6 build later.
It took a long time to get the door jams even close to where they would look good painted

My idea of making the five spokes did not pan out. The plastic from the ridemakes wheels was to hard to sand out the imperfections left when i cut out the other material that i did not want. So im using the other set i bought.
The dumb thing is, the ones im gone use are close to the kit wheels. Derrrrrrrrrrr. You can see the kit wheel beside the RMakers with kit tires And then the RMakers with RMakers tires.
I glued the 5 spoke wheel to the one im using.
I slid it in the tire and cut off the excess. This could be used to do a deep dish rim if you are onto that stuff
Here are a set of drilled and slotted rotors i got off ebay. I cut the calipers off the risen ones and then added the calipers off the kit break assembly. The rear calipers just got cut off and the whole resin peice will just get glued on. I used the kit parts so adding the resin parts wont be so hard

Those door jambs are beautiful Gary! Looks great in paint too.

I think i the angle is right. I tried to match the kit directions as to where the calipers go. Since i sanded the kit ones off, i had to just guess where to put them
One more pick gluing the wind sheild in.

Looking good Gary! Big props to you for being the first convertible with opening doors! It would be awesome if someone could photoshop this and my Super Snake together in a photo. Would love to see that!!
