    After the first washing and sanding, then you apply the primer. Now I put first coat of paint, do you guys sand inbetween coats or not?

    Very first 1:1 car revisited
    This next build Im doing is of the first love of my life. My very first car. I had seen it sitting in an uncles field and had been parked there for years. We bought it and my step dad and I brought it back to life. I am looking forward to building this one and the memories it brings back. I will be building it a little beefer than mine was. Mine was not bone stock but I will go beyound what mine was. I will be building this one the way I always dreamed I could have built mine!!
    I am starting with the AMT 1971 Ford Mustang Mach1. I can tell it will need to be readied as it has some amount of flash and mold lines. I will TRY and take pics as I go. Wish me luck as I am not as skilled as some of you guys, but will do my best.

    How do you cut open the doors and then not end up with toooooo big of a gap when you hinge them back on?? I want to try this but I am scared of the gap left behind after cutting them out. Looking for advice.

    Scalenut......Dude it looks like you got your hands full. Checked out the site and looks like you doing some great work.

    Sky.... That little guy is tough looking. Ill have to be sure to get me one. Now that I have seen it if I had to do mine over again I think I would make the stripes wider like they are on that little guy. Thanks for letting me know about it.

    Ken,
    I havent seen them yet but I will be looking next time i go in. I just love the look. I had a 1:1 railbuggy and had it painted the same way.

    I still have a fwe more stars to paint in and some touch up work. A little more shading but I think it is starting to look pretty cool. Should be good to wet sand by the time I get home in the morning and maybe I can add more of the details.
