    Ok back to work. Made some changes to the shop. Studded the walls of the workshop area. Added a window and a new Champion Spark plug cabinet. Waiting for it to dry I also built a ladder to reach the storage area above the work bench.

    I agree Dr. I am going with white interior, black dash with the Purple being where the wood grain would have gone in the original car, just to tie everything in.Seems if you paint everything black you do loose alot of the details.

    I too thought the idea of a funny car on it sounded odd but hey each to their own. I just build what is asked of me LOL. I have thoughts of putting some chains on it but I need to stop at the craft store to find something to use. Everything I have is to big.

    Scratch built Dyno Tester
    A friend asked me to build him a Dyno tester to display a funny car he is building. He wanted it to show it being tested as if he was working on the motor. I am not quite done as there is no sending units for which the computer can take readings from. They are outside drying and will be installed tomorrow. Then I will be able to connect the wire from the lap top. Any thoughts ? I also have to touch up the black and yellow caution paint as I had a little trouble with the tape lines. No biggie !

    Yeah I understand that it isn't exactly PCP but the paint said " shimmery " aaaahhhhh yeah I'm calling PCP ! LOL Usually all the ones I have seen have black interior with chrome. Just trying something different but not TOO different.

    Plum crazy purple with what interior color
    OK taking some time away from my diorama building to make up a few cars for it. Started this Charger. Found a new paint at the hobby store and thought I would give it a shot. Even without it being cleared yet it looks pretty good to me but now I have to find an interior color to match. I am going for a cross between a stock and a street Charger. Thought about going with sheer sheet metal look but I want it also to be a cruiser. Any ideas ?
