Last time I talked to Ed was at the Fulton show back in Nov. At the show he had a sign saying he was going out of buisness which he confirmed while I was talking to him Said he was looking to sell everything as a packaged deal. He said that when his stock was gone that was gonna be it. I grabed some of his resin parts as much as I could afford at the time. I haven't talked to him since then. I did talke to a person who knows him much better than I do a couple weeks ago and what he said was that Ed never found anyone to buy the buisness so when he can afford some more resin then he will make some more stuff, But like I said that is word a of a friend of his friend so I can't say that is the full truth

I had to take the wheel wells from the WWB kit and graft them to the 34 body but I felt this opened the wheel wells too much so I grabbed some plastic and filled in front of the wheels about 0.040 inch, behind the wheels gained 0.100 inch. now the wheel wells look about right.

After getting the body all smoothed out again it got taken to the paint shop, lol my garage, where it was shot with a nice metallic blue then I layed down some dry rub decals that were meant for a pine car that the Boy Scouts build and race. When I first put on the graphic they were less than Impressive to me, but after shooting on the first coat of clear I changed my mind and am no longer thinking of tossing the body into the purple lake.

I still have to lay down a couple more coats of clear and take care of some minor details before I can call this one done
