    The chassis assembly is complete, now onto the body and finishing touches. I also included some more pics of the interior before I set the door panels and dash in the body.

    Thank you very much. Great idea about buffing the clearcoat. I don’t have the resources at this time, though I do plan on buffing it in the future.

    Made a bit more progress on the Eliminator. This was my first attempt at using actual wires for the plug wires instead of thread. The interior is painted, decals applied, and ready for assembly.

    Made some more progress on the Eliminator. Next is to finish up the decals, wash the grille, and wire the engine.

  12. Yikes! I’m sorry to hear that you’re laid up. I wish you a speedy recovery. Glad I could be of inspiration. I’ll keep you updated, for sure.
  13. No problem, Geno! At this point, it looks like it should be done next week.
  14. Not sure how accurate to the real car it is, but I painted mine with Rust-oleum Apple red over white primer. Here are a couple pics in natural light (one in sunlight, one in shade).
