    Alright, alright, alright 😃
  4. Sweet Galaxie Roger! Perfect compliment to your Impala.
  5. Pretty much the only thing left to do is the interior. I'm running out of steam. I'm at the point I want to be done with it. It might be time to box this one up until I'm ready again.
  6. Getting closer. Still so much to do Going to use the X37 headlight buckets and taillights
  7. I added shelf paper with wood grain to the running boards. The fenders looked like they needed some attention so I sanded them down and removed the mold lines then shot them with some gloss craft acrylic. I mixed it 2:1 with IPA 70 at 15psi. I'm learning new techniques as I go. Seems to be working out. I went over the wheels again with the chrome pen and glued the tires on. I got a good look at the tires. The ones they sent are directional but are identical as the lettering is on the same side on all 4 tires. I'm betting whoever drew up the file only created one tire not both. began work on the engine and pipes too. Stay Tuned...
  8. Great color. Nice details
  9. Outstanding build. Awesome color and finish
  10. The running boards have a hole in them for the exhaust stacks. I'm not gonna use that type of exhaust so they have to be filled. I've decided to use the Revell '37 Ford engine and possibly the seats. I tried to clean up the firewall and sanded away the reinforcing. I glued some styrene strips back in place. The original battery is too big and will hit the valve cover so I grabbed a smaller one from the salvage yard. I got the bed box all stained up and tacked in place too. I was going to drill out the tailgate hinges and make them functional but it was so sloppy I felt it was best to just make it secure. Next I'll finish up the running boards and hang the rear fenders and taillights. that's it for now.
  11. Really like that color. Great finish too
  12. The rust on the exhaust manifolds looks real! Outstanding!
