The color looks a little light but could be the picture...

The build is looking good. I agree that perhaps a good outdoor shot would help (this week will be good- mostly filtered sun with lowish humidity, especially Friday), but either way, I know it'll be another one to be proud of when you're done, Mike.

 

Will this one be debuting in October?

Looks awesome! And the paint you used is the Tamiya British Green? Reason I asked is because this looks like the perfect green for my current build.

No, I did not use the Tamiya British Green paint.  I used Brewster Green paint from a company called Automotive Touchup.  I split the cost of the 12 oz. can of paint with a friend.

Charlie, I'm not sure when I'll finish the T/A.  Life has been kicking me really hard for the past month and I have little to no time or ambition to work on any of my projects.  And, I hate trying to push myself to finish a project since the end result is usually less than spectacular.

 

It's been awhile since I have done anything with this T/A and since it is raining outside, I decided to spend a little time on it.  I clearcoated the shaker hood scoop this morning.  I painted the scoop a couple of weeks ago after I stripped the paint when I discovered a major flaw in the paint on top of the scoop.

Thanks Jeff!  I am slowly getting back to wanting to work on anything again.  So, this morning I decided to start on some foiling.

I then started paint detailing the engine bay.

Good to see you back to it, Mike. That's going to be a nice car when you're done with it.

 

See you next week in Lawrence.
