    Greg, what if the roof scoop were reduced in height? Maybe by half or more, particularly toward the leading edge, where you could thin it down and blend it in so that it starts further back from the windshield header.

    Nah.
    This one, yes!

    Thanks, Dan!  The plan is to keep this project moving.
    Thanks, John!  That was the intention, to carry that look to the rear. Glad you like it !
    Thanks, Dave!  I did consider using a smoothed '57 hood but was concerned about making it look to much like a Chrysler, and that little scoop is such a distinctive feature of the '58 Fords I wanted to retain it, but just integrate it a little better.
    Thanks, Charley! That's what we custom geeks like to think we're doing, improving on the original stylists' work!  If we're lucky, sometimes we even succeed!

    Brilliant hood treatment! 
    Are you going to leave the Klingon forehead thingy on the roof?  Everything else is so clean now it's starting to look out of place.  Though I could see preserving it as tribute to this nice build's really humble starting point!

    Amazing work on this project, JC!

    Chris, the mesh I'm using is fine woven stainless steel from a drip coffee maker.  But I also like what you're showing here! If you don't mind sending me a piece about a 1/2" x 1/4" to keep on hand as a Plan B (or maybe even Plan A once I see it firsthand!) that'd be terrific! I'll PM you my address. Thanks!

    Thanks, guys!  I'm pretty excited about moving this one forward!

    A couple gentlemen of sound design judgement pointed out that the Chrysler bumper and grill swap could use some refinement to drop it down a bit and smooth the transition into the wheel opening. A bit of work was needed to accomplish it, most adding material underneath the front "lip" along with some on the sides and shaping with files and sanding sticks.
    I like this better now!

    Here's where it was before...

    Some more shots of the new treatment. I also molded in and opened up the hood scoop which will eventually receive some very fine mesh. The hood opening was rescribed at the front and the corners were rounded.

    Looks like that rim is white metal.

    Beautiful paint!  Always nice to see my favorite kit get some love!

    That is very cool!  Very '50s – great design!  Is this a specific brand of trailer?

    Nice work, Gene!  Definitely meets with our approval!

    The Revell/G&G wheels will go a long to improving the Aurora kit.
