    Thanks JC! I'll keep that one in mind for future dual quad applications buddy.

    That's funny. I had the same experience. There was an article with a picture of a car there but it sure aint a Barracuda! lol

    Looks like something that got left in the commode and needs to be flushed.

    Good grief!!

    I didn't much like the seating that came in the original boxing (and never really have to tell you the truth).....



    So I upgradedĀ to the 1/24 Monogram 55 F-100 kit seat which looks a helluva lot more up-to-date and a lot neater in appearance. (Man I'm glad I bought that kit in the beginning to supplement this build. lol)



    After a lot of clean up on the seat platform I washed both parts this morning and they'll be in the primer stage by later this morning.

    Thanks Rob, Dave and Carl.
    Not much in the way of pics but have been working on touching up and clean up on the flocking and foot pedals. I got the brake and clutch pedals painted up yesterday, I ordered a bare foot PE gas pedal this morning and got the gear shift painted and installed today. I'll end up using a steering wheel I got from my Barris T Buggy kit. I may acquire another steering column. I'm just not "feelin" the one that's in the kit boxing.

    First off that's a clean build you've got going there JD!
    Secondly , thanks for that great idea concerning the bed mat. I'm considering that idea for use with my 56.

    That.........is all too familiar. lol. My wife was looking under our bed for a missing hamster the other day. I was in the kitchen and heard her in a loud voice ask," There's model kits under our bed now???!!!!"

    Started work on the "carpet" yesterday and spot corrected this morning. I still have a little trimming left to do but I'm all good with it. While I'm at it the dash is pretty much finished. A little trimming here and there on the chrome BMF and we'll be set there.

    Acrylic display riser end pieces
    I'm getting set for the completion of my WIP and am going to display it on a clear acrylic riser with a mirror underneath. I saw some cool end pieces at either end of the display between the clear riser and the mirror and wondered if anybody has any ideas on where to look or how to pull this off. Here's the pic. Thanks for any help that you can be

    Well I've got the fuel line installed and routed. I used a pin for chrome fuel line and coated it with some Tamiya Smoke X-19 to give it that true metal look and made a 90 degree banjo fitting to go onto the fuel rail at the carbs. Check it out....



    I started on the inner fender wells yesterday by removing all that nasty molded on detail and cleaned it up and painted it.
    Before:


    And after. (This still needs to cure out so I can polish it up and make it into a mirror finish but you can see the difference so far)
