    Wayne, that's interesting that you would find that color hard to find as it was right there in the Summit Racing catalog online.  I just ordered a can and had it in a few days.  Along with a free hat (it was their 40th Anniversary).

    I had this in mind for the stock shifter.  I took the racing shifter and cut off the T-Handle.  Then I took the stock shifter and cut-off the shift ball.  Using a pinvise and a drill bit the size of the shifter shaft, I drilled a hole in the T-Handle and then I glued the handle to the shifter shaft.  I now have a T-Handle for the stock shifter!  Paint the boot black and the handle aluminium and I'm done!

    You're welcome John!

    Thanks Jeremy!  I'm hoping to finish it up over the next few days this week.  So much to do, so little time!

    I can see the light at the end of the tunnel!  The body and chassis are one and I have started adding the chrome bits and pieces.

    Sometimes a snap kit can offer more detail or crisper lines that a full detail kit can offer.  Looking good so far on a subject not seen too often.

    I have finished the chassis by adding the wheels and tires.


    I added several drops of Tamiya X-22 Clear to mimic gauge lenses.

    Thanks Ron!  This gives me more insight to any possible trouble spots on the '62 TBird.I have also discovered that the side panels fit may cause some interference when installing the body over them.

    Wow Chris!  I wish you had told me that you were going to do this in advance.  I had sent the historic plate image to a friend of mine (he's a computer nerd) to resize it for me and I was able to print the '62 Indiana plate from the Acme License Plate site.  I will take them since you went to the effort to resize and print them out for me.  Check your PM for my address.  Thanks!

    I was able to spend some time on the TBird and got some things painted and detailed.  I added a wash to the wire wheels.  I painted the rear axle with Model Master Acryl Guards Red and the springs with Model Master Aluminium with a few drops of black.  I painted the steering wheel and column with Model Master Insignia Red and detailed the horn ring and the control stalks with my Molotow Liquid Chrome Pen.  The front springs were painted with the Acryl Guards Red and my Molotow Liquid Chrome Pen.  I have decided against chopping the windshield.  I don't think I could chop it correctly in the time I have left and have it look presentable.

    Thanks Brian and Carl!  This is one of my favorite builds, too!

    I tried to shrink this picture in MS Word like I do for all my other plates and it pixelated on me when I tried to change the image dimensions to 0.25 X 0.50 and it came out looking like a blob..

    I have wet sanded the '62 Vette and I burnt through some of the edges on the body, hood, and roof.  I repainted them last night and they look great!  Now on to clear coat and polishing!
