Did the coils, wired the fan motors, made some fittings and hydraulic hoses for the oil pump and mounted all that. Made a dipstick and tube, that's on, so the only things left on the engine are the "dryer hoses" from the air boxes and the throttle cable to the gas pedal. Those are being made but can't be installed until the body is on. That won't be for some time, a long time! For now though, here's the engine!
The decal paper is called Experts Choice, by Bare-Metal Foil Co. it's on clear and for laser. I also brushed some Microscale liquid decal film over them before I used them, they worked great and I got real fine resolution for tiny print!
I'm shocked by all the negative comments about Foose, I love the car as a 1:1 but as for building models, I don't want to do someone else's custom, even if it's as gorgeous to me as a Foose's design. I want to put my own spin on it, and what you're doing is so awesome, that roof transplant is what I also intend to do! Too bad we didn't buy those Caddy rear fenders from Modelhaus while they were available! I did manage to get some clear red tail lights so I guess I'll try to scratch the small "fins" for them and graft those onto the rear fenders. LOVE the way yours is looking, got any colors picked out yet?
I've managed to install the engine, after getting the suspension put together, still a long way to go, but that only means a lot more fun ahead! Next up, wire the fan motors, add the oil pump and lines, detail up, or scratch build the coils and wiring:
