  1. Shelby series 1

    I repainted the seats with a little more gloss in the mix they turned out great
  2. Shelby series 1

    Making progress . I have some spot putty going on. I wish I would have done it before it got hot even with hardly any hardener it kicks in about 3 minutes.
  3. What kind of car is this

    My first thought was a zephyr because of the grill but the hood threw me off because it made me think of a Studebaker then the tail fins really threw me off. I was stumped. Thanks for the help.
  4. What kind of car is this

    This is a picture of my great aunt in England in the 50s. Trying to figure out what it is
  5. Shelby series 1

    One thing that posting on this site does for me, when I post something tlhen go back to look at it the next day and realize that it looks like poo. I am going to dip that coolant reservoir and repaint it. When am I going to learn that the airbrush is my friend.
  6. Shelby series 1

    I am taking so long to complete this build. I got the coolant reservoir done and the seats painted. The seats don't quite have the luster of leather I'm going to do some experiments to see if I can get the look I want. Maybe just some armorall??
  7. Shelby series 1

    After what I like to refer to as the decal debacle. I ordered some decals from scale Motorsports and finally got this thing looking the way it's supposed to. I think that it probably would have laid down better if I had used a more aggressive decals setting liquid but I think that this will be ok.

    Thanks. I've been watching your Pagani it's looking awesome. Seeing some of the things you are doing has made me up my game. You might want to check your Shelby to make sure that all the parts are there. My kit was missing the glass. I had to buy a second kit. Let me know if you need some spare parts I might have them.
  9. Shelby series 1

    Getting a little bit of work done on the coolant reservoir. I found some aluminum wire that is going to be great for the heater hose and small coolant lines.
  10. Shelby series 1

    Some work on the master cylinder and booster
  11. Decals for under hood

    That's awesome. Thanks for the tip!
  12. Carbon fiber hydro dip

    It's the intake for a Shelby series 1
  13. Decals for under hood

    I am working on a project it's a Shelby series 1. I tried to apply a couple of the kit decals and they basically disintegrated before they even let loose of the backing paper. I figure that these decals are just old and what ever magic makes them work disappeared a long time ago. Now I am looking for some generic under hood decals. Or a reproduction of the original set. Anybody have suggestions?
  14. What Do You Want To See Next?

    I want to see a 1:25 1973 Oldsmobile Delta 88. Evil Dead movie car.
  15. Shelby series 1

    I have seen your's. You did a great job on it. I was going to put a roof on mine but I hate to be a copy cat. I also wanted to try to do some interior detailing. The other 4 models that I've done have really focused on the paint job. I wanted to try to do something out of my comfort zone. Opening doors is way the heck out of my comfort zone. LoL
