Got the wheels glued on this morning. Now I'm thinking that I should have painted the inside of the wheels. Not sure why they were not done at the factory since the outside was.
This is just with the body sitting on the chassis for mock up. I need to make sure that the front sits lower. I had to make the headlight covers out of clear plastic and paint them black because I never got any headlight buckets with the body, so it is just empty under there. I am going to try today to make my own 5-point racing harnesses for the seats out of pop can aluminum. It won't need to be too detailed due to the fact that you won't be able to see much on the inside.....I hope.
See what I mean about the inner side of the wheels? Fine for a shelf model but I don't like it.
This last shot shows a bit of the green tint, especially if you zoom in on the hood. Later-
It's all HOK but unsure of what colors. I think the main color is Sunset pearl. I'll have to ask Mike. It's cool because in the sunlight it changes from bright orange to pinkish to a slight green under the orange. Later-
This is the next one on the list to finish. My Buddy Mike Flynn gave me this painted body ages ago and I have been slowly plugging away at it. Just have the 5 point harnesses to do and I can get all of the sub assemblies put together. I finished the rear taillights today. Later-
Nice builds and great paint. Looks like you've got some clean work going on, but some better lighting would really set this off. Sure wish I could build that cleanly. Mine start off nice but by the end it fall down somewhere. Later-
Thanks for all the nice comments guys. The weathering on this one didn't quite turn out as I had planned but, for my shelf it'll work. I never thought of painting the rims white. That may be something to try on the next one. Later-
