I got a little more done this weekend. It has been hard for me to stay at the workbench due to a back injury at work so I am moving a little slow on this build LOL :rolleyes: . I hope to get the body in color and clear this week sometime weather permitting.

Well, the front lettering was just not working out for me so I decided to remove them. They will be replaced with P.E. lettering in the future.

Thanks Bryan. I have used the walmart primer before too, but the duplicolor seems to cure faster for sanding. I really like doing the foil this way so far as long is it turns out good in the end. A lot cleaner in my opinion. I am debating a vinyl top on this one, but have never tried that yet. I am doing so many new things with build I don't know if I should just go all out or try it later. I have time to decide I guess :rolleyes: lol. Anyone out there ever use the MCG photoetch set for this specific build? I have used some P.E. stuff a little now, but never a set for a specific car. Are they worth the time and money? Thanks All!

Here is the engine half glued together. Will take some time to clean up any visible seams.

And while I wait on primer to dry I like to pick away at small details. I clipped the exhaust off the tree and remove the molded clamps. Finally going to try the P.E. muffler clamps I bought a while back :D
