    A small update by most standards, but for all the work that's gone into the interior this is a big one for me! And just a shot on the bench of the pieces still in the works. The dash proper is set but the center console had to be done from scratch and is still being shaped .. at least the fit is correct now. Kit Basher has generously sent me some wood veneer for my dash and this is in the process. It is so thin I was considering using the veneer itself but have photographed it and will use a photographic print. Maybe in next update if that works. The veneer he sent has beautiful grain .. perfect for my dash.
    In this photo is the rear resin bumper that broke in two places due to my clutzy hands while sanding the flash off. They are pinned and ready for glue, but this joint will be delicate no matter what. The rear bumper has the mounting pins in place and is ready for Alclad.
    The center console has a piece added because I had to lower the center tunnel to correct the console height .. I hope I can get a radio in it after adding the shifter piece. The shift boot was made from progressively smaller rings and are on the shaft made from a headed pin.

    Welcome to the forum from up north in the mountains, but I spent my youth swimming in the Sound ... from the CT side, though.

  10. Foxer added a post in a topic Looking for wheel tutorial   

    This one's not it I see but shows added nuts from rod.
    simulating lug nuts on wheels ..
    didn't come up with one that's what you mentioned, but those seem a good start.

    I let people know the cost and time it takes to build and I don't give my time away for nothing. That usually cuts it off in the bud.
  12. Foxer added a post in a topic Stripping paint when body work is involved.   

    I've found the same .. strippers ruin body putty. I haven't tested extensively as I don't enjoy redoing bodywork, as much as I like that part of modeling. I always just sand down paint when bodywork/stripping is required.

    Three TR's .. wow! I think it was keeping the SU's in sync that finally did me in ... I was lucky if they went a month before the power dropped. My sports car bug hit me a few years later and stayed thru five Porsche 924/944's ... galvanized bodies and the sweetest suspensions in the world.
     
    In other news, the TR dash pieces are coming together .. I scraped the resin dash clean and started fabricating all the little pieces ... nothing worth a photo yet.
