    Great work on the rims Dave, they always look better with the holes open rather than painted black. I had no issues with my bumper from Missing Link fitting, how far off is yours? And I never even noticed the lack of vents at the back of the '74 hood, I may have to start hacking and see if I can't get it right before I set off on my replica.

    Joe, I've been watching since the beginning, and it's looking so much better than what is normally possible with this kit! How much more before we get to see it in all it's professionally-built glory?

    Steve, you're making me wish I had never traded mine off, this is looking great! The suede black with the foil came out great, and the red roof with the red rims should really bring it all together!

    No only no, bet H E L L no! You can't spray it, brushing it would also be impossible, it's a glue. Go back to whoever told you that, and put it on their hands, then tie them together....

    Absolutely gorgeous Steven!

    And I'm seeing the pictures as normal, 21 inch monitor here....now if I could only get ANY pictures to post on this forum I might get complaints about squashed pics too one day!

    Nice job on the bodywork, the roof looks nice and smooth considering how many cuts you put into it. Have you laid any primer on it yet?

    That AMT Super Bee is probably the kit I have robbed for parts the most over the last 20 years...lots of goodies in the Pro Street version for sure!

    Gorgeous color Bill, and the flake size should look pretty good on the body, this is gonna be a pretty one!

    You're building box-stock? Well, at least we know it's gonna be the cleanest box-stock build ever, that's for sure. I've never seen one of these outside of pictures, I always thought it was a gorgeous car.

    I remember that hood being called a Pitchfork hood.

    Marcelo, it's beautiful! The work on the headlights was worth it, it really does improve the looks. Great paint, awesome details, and a very clean build!

    That's beautiful Richard, and seeing what it started as makes it even better!

    You got it, simple L-shaped styrene strips, if you really wanted to go all out, you could add little screw heads on the inside, but I'm not that far gone...yet!

    Marcelo. and even easier method of making the wheel well trim is the angle styrene strips that Evergreen makes, I've used it many times. You simply lay it in the wheel well, glue it down, and foil it! Here's the angle strip in place and foiled on a '68 Satellite I did a while back, since I still can't get a picture to load, you'll have to click on the link.

    BTW, my name is Mike, the Olaf is just to mess with people!

    This looks like it going to be a beauty when you finish it, and it seems like your skills have increased just a bit since the last time you tackled this model! Great work on the headlights so far and fenders, it really does make a difference! Lowering the nose a bit is also a good idea, I always thought this kit sat a bit too high, at least for my tastes!
