Coloring outside of the lines is GOOD ! Really looking forward to seeing this.

I'm curious. 1932 Ford pick-up? Did this project start out as an AMT or Lindberg '34 pick-up? There's only a minor difference in the rear body moldings (at the beltline) between the two. A 1932 does not have the wide upper molding a '34 does. Your project sounds great. Really pushing the envelope. Good luck with it.

As much as my kindergarten teacher Mrs. Quinn would surely disagree, I'd have to say you're dead-on in this case. :D

I should qualify my statement, Chuck. AFTER one has fully mastered coloring INSIDE the lines, than INTENTIONAL coloring outside the lines is good. Otherwise, it's just lazy. poor technique. :) :) :)

Either I can't count or you switched engines, as that has 6 holes showing. And here I thought you were doing the Volvo B234R/F head swap to the Ford 2.3L Turbo motor and using that.
