    Hi Chris,  LOL they always told me I was insane.. I didn't believe them. Ask me any question about the build anytime you want. For Question 1,  I'm still on the fence with metal or fiber glass yet. I know I'm building the frames.. that will be metal welded to gather to hold the whole panels and interior in line. For the shell, engine bay, hood, doors, trunk lid. Either Fiberglass or Metal on those parts. For the shell if I go Fiberglass route I'll make a wire frame and Fiberglass coat it that way. How I'm going to attach the shell to the frame, I'm thinking metal screws at this minute or Maybe Pop Rivets but that could crack the fiberglass though. As for the small parts like Grill and Interior and what not will be made or of plastic and other stuff. Question 2, Well i been working at cleaning and welding here and there on them.. But I do have to reclean them back up though.. I don't think cleaning them will be to hard though. But when I get into final assembly on the frame and bolting things to gather then it could or might be harder then what it is at this stage in the build. But I think if I keep clean and do like the factory did on the real cars I should be available to do it though and bond everything to gather probably with small screws.

    If it's metal or diecast, I would the automotive self-etching primer for between metal and paint.

    I still can not believe he is gone. I always loved following his builds on here and talking to him at times here there on the forum about projects. When I heard of the very sad news it sadden me a lot, now coming to the forum seems to me to feel different now. I keep looking for him to post to something.  R.I.P Harry
