Ok, lets see if laptop and forum will speak nicely to each other. Continuation of previous post about Hammer Road Runner.
Body after polish.
After several coats of clear.
Body hit with polish and center of hood painted flat black. Used a silver Sharpie for the window and grille trim.
Wheels before and after spokes painted black.
Kit comes with a bench seat instead of bucket like real car. Don't have any extra buckets so I improvised. Picture of real interior. This car shows it without a center console, but I've seen pictures of it with one. I think that is one of many differences between the real and movie car. Both cars come with custom gauge cluster; left this stock.
Still unsure if I will leave the seats two tone or paint them the lighter color; opinions?

I would darken the insides more. From the picture it seems they are very close to black

Small update. Got interior assembled.
Got Hemi assembled. Not sure what kit this came from, picked it up on eBay. Painted block assembly MM Aluminum. Valve covers stripped of chrome and painted MM Steel. Headers are Tamiya Metallic Gray and trans is Tamiya Gunmetal. Didn't worry too much on carb since it will be covered by air cleaner assembly.
Last, head and taillight panels. There is a Plymouth decal for rear panel, but I think I'm going to leave script body color.

Ready to go under glass. If it isn't too cold and windy tomorrow, I'll wipe it down and get better pictures.

I got my nitrous tanks in the mail finally, so now I can start on my Nissan Skyline R34 "2F2F prelude" build. Might start it this weekend!

Very nice Oscar, my Skyline finally arrived yesterday so I'll be getting pics of it up within the next day or so.

I'm still waiting for my daytona to get here I think ot is lost in the high desert
I know how you feel. My box shipped on December 5th, it arrived stateside on December 19th. No sign of the package yet and I don't get tracking since it's from Japan. Probably being held by customs with suspicion of it being a bomb or something.

The Roadrunner looks beautiful Oscar, congrats on being the first one to finish a build too.

Alright here's my kits starting point. And If possible I would also like to try to do Dom's 70' Charger also from Fast Five. Thought it might be nice to have them sitting together.

I've built the Skyline. It's a nice build but, the instructions are horrible in any language. Be careful not to leave that suicide hood hinge out...it's a pain to go back and add.
