      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    thanks george!

    rob, thanks for that suggestion. i'm still working on the paint(or lack of). got the running boards painted and washed, and some streaks of darker yellow. i'll post more pictures in a few days. i'll definitely do the alcohol/and toothbrush procedure.

    thanks ryan. i've enjoyed this build alot so far. i have much more to do(haven't even started the interior). but the the original truck is 60+ years old, so i guess no big rush. just havin fun!

    a few more pictures...the salting, and, after applying the yellow/cream final coat. this truck came from the factory in k.c. in sheridan blue(dark, almost black), was purchased by a caterpillar dealer in the area, and painted caterpillar yellow. it was used as the shop/service truck for several years. years later,(after alot of fading) i purchased it. the color of the 1:25 is now very close to the color of the 1:1 that i owned.

    as much as i have always loved the willys coupes, and would really scowl at anyone who said the coupe body should be messed with, this thing is COOL! can't wait to see it finished. color me breathlessly awaiting the final product!
