    Looks like a wet weekend coming my way so perhaps I'll get some bench time in. I'd like to get this ready to take on the road and hopefully work on it during the week. Thanks for the interest...

    Sunday I took a few minutes and started the dis-assembly. I'm pretty happy with the shape the body is in and I believe the interior will be easily updated. Let's hope the glass is ok and comes out in one piece. The glue was typically thick in most areas but brittle enough to separate the pieces easily. At least until I turned the body over. These spots were pretty heavy and I didn't even try to break the interior tub free. I used a small razor saw blade mounted in my knife handle and was able to saw through one of the front connections without damage. After returning home from work this weekend I'll try the other side. But the rear point I think I'll try scribe it loose with a x-acto blade in reverse. One of the other things I'll be doing is working on this sometimes from the hotel where I'm staying during the week. Should be interesting! And I think I found some bumpers in my spare parts box, which adds no new cost to the project so far. And thanks for the interest and comments everyone...

    Had a good time with friends Saturday at the "Stark Scale Model Club" Show, I found this little gem in the swap meet area and it just seemed to call out to me. So what I thought I would do is, a restor/fresh'n up. I kinda like the color so I will attempt to polish the body or maybe clear coat it. I was thinking about a white roof also. Some Bare Metal Foil will be added, along with a new set of wider tires and keeping the stock wheel covers. I'll be fixing the rear bumper and searching for the front bumper and turn signals. A couple of things under the hood perhaps but mainly working on just the appearance for now. Not sure what to do with the interior just yet. Also I thought I'd make it more interesting by tracking the cost involved as the build progresses. Initial cost $10
