Here's how I'm going to do the map. I laid some tape on the side and front of the car, and drew a template. Then I laid the tape on some clear acetate and will use it to cut templates to choose what parts of this map will get used. I'm going to do some graphics changes so that some of the cooler parts of the map show up in my chosen areas. More soon.
I'm very happy today to restart this stalled project. It stalled because I could not figure out the finish on the body. So lets catch up. Here is my previous attempt. Satin black with a masked area of tan and some hard painted graphics which looked terrible. So my next plan was to print graphics but could not find a pirate map that I liked. Until now. So this will now remain on the bench until complete.
Here's the map I found. Thanks Google.
So here's where the body is now. Satin black a few days away.
Thanks Pat. I finished it up, adding a upper radiator hose and side mirrors. A rusty wash on the rockers and she's in the display case. I'm really looking forward to setting her in the tuner section at the next contest.
I didn't know either Charlie. When I made the trade for a '77 Pacer (sight unseen) with a fellow club member, I assumed and expected I was getting the recent release of the coupe. When he showed up at the next meeting with this, I was very happy. From what I gather, it was released in it's stock form and then as a custom panel sedan. And then never again. Maybe suggest a re-release to Round2?
