Wow that's some shiny paint! When I attach glass in, I first use Elmer's White Glue and tack the corners and the middle of the glass to the body. After that, I use Testor's Clear Glue for glass (The one that is white and then drys clear and has a purple label) to go fully around the window. I paint the headliner before I install the glass, so I don't have the chance ever of getting the paint on the glass. Hope to see this under glass soon! Cheers!

Update got the interior tub done. My budget for this car is done. And I didn't want to hand paint the whole tub so I left it in the primer white. I may still go in and do some small detailing but it's pretty much done.

The windows were glued back in with tamiya cement. Works pretty well if you lightly brush it on. The headliner is painted as well pics of that later, underside of good and hinges are painted semi gloss black. Pics of that later, here we are car should be done by tomorrow maybe.

Cheers,
Byron

Interior looks great. That will look sharp with the green. Is that green carpet I see? Don't forget to paint your door handles!  B)

I decided to not detail the inside. This is also going to be a closed hood model. But as for green carpet no, that is just black overspray from painting the opposite fire wall side.

I left it like that because it almost looked like simulated carpet

It does look like carpet, sometimes flocking looks too big, sometimes too small... Are you going to glue the hood shut, what do you mean as a closed hood model?

By closed hood I mean by I'm not gonna prop the hood. I screwed the fan belt assembly and I don't feel like fixing it. I'll show pics but for the most part the model will have it's hood on.

Model is basically done just gotta ad one more decal.

Cheers,
Byron

A revell 69' Charger (General lee) and a 68' Charger (Bullitt)

But the General Lee is first, I'm hoping to a more detailed engine with this. Plug wires and hoses.
