      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    Got a little more progress done to the '63 , interior is a mess , once the black tar like paint was removed it revealed how damaged the plastic was from the heavy amount of glue and what the paint done to the plastic as well ...... so this is what I have got done to it so far , Far from great but somewhat better and this is just a mock up , still some foil work to finish up etc.


    .....A bit of frame/floor work done....trying to give it the used look , not too sure if I am pleased with it or not....leaving fuel tank with that "new" look as would be when rescuing a car that has been sitting for years with old nasty fuel....


    That's about it for now , started the foil work on the body and see how that goes.....Thanks for looking and open for comments and of ideas .......

    I seen a video by Chris Chapman using blue washer fluid as a thinner and cleaner and he swore it does not give a blue tint so I went out to the garage got some fluid and gave it a try and sure enough worked great and was a good cleaner too.....I personally find his videos verrrrrrrrrrrry helpful...

    Hey thanks for the positive comments.....I do plan to use foil and the interior is being redone (hopefully) having a heck of a time getting the black paint off the seats especially,Did manage to do a little update on it Sunday ........Thans for lookin' and again please comments,ideas etc. are very welcome

    A little more on the "Work in progress" look in primer,pay no attention to the silver body side trim as eventually they will be foiled.

    Some under hood clean up,wanting that look of a freshened up engine compartment and also hope to do a little detail here as well.
    Door/side panels cleaned up decent and painted it with "craft acrylic paint",found a metallic color that looks close to Medium Saddle Metallic even though it looks very "gold" here under the light and or camera shot.
    Also tried a first of drilling out the tailpipes .... looks like I need to open them up a bit more...............That's it for now and again thanks for looking!
