    Thanks again guys.
    Mark, I got a set by Hampton Art with 16 different colors of embossing powder on EBAY back in March for $16.70 + $2.76 shipping.

    Steven, you're just a "crazyman" with all that masking and painting on interiors...... but it does look outstanding.

    That looks great Mike.  J.D. has been my favorite libation for many, many years.

    That's actually an Armadillo that does that...... Not an Amarillo.

    One of the prescription drugs that I take on a daily basis is Onglyza, for the control of my blood sugar, as I am a Stage 2 diabetic.  My blood sugar numbers are all good due to watching my diet and taking the Onglyza and Metformin.  (latest # is 97 and my A1C is 6.4).  When we went to my local Target pharmacy to pick up my prescription refills they advised that the co-pay for Onglyza had gone up......  A 90 day refill supply would cost me $459.00...!!!!!!  There is no way in hell that I can afford that.  I and the pharmacy called my PCP to see if he can either prescribe a generic for Onglyza, or a different, cheaper drug.
    Drug prices are ridiculous!!!  The drug companies are so profit oriented causing so many people to not be able to afford the drugs they need.  Yeah, I know, the corporate mindset is to make a profit... but come on...!!!
    I'm not trying to make this a political thing, I'm just "irked".

    Well it took me awhile to get the interior done on this car because I was concentrating on finishing up the Mercury first.  The molded upholstery pattern on this interior was not the same as that in the brochure that Charlie mentioned, so I went with a more lighter blue color to closely match the body color.  The tub interior is not easy to paint detail (none of them are) but patience and a steady hand can help.  I used embossing powder on the carpet, package tray and seat back inserts.  This was my first try at using embossing powder and I'm pretty happy with the results.  It gives a nice texture on seats too.  BMF trim and pieces of chrome strips from the Galaxie '48 Chevy are on the door panels along with resin door handles and vent window cranks.  The dash is painted body color with BMF and chrome silver paint along with some speedo, radio & shifter gauge faces from my parts box, covered with clear epoxy for lenses.  I made the column shifter and turn signal stalk from pieces of shirt pins.  (Sorry about the fuzzy pictures).

    OK Joe (Vettecote)... Now I can see the "cog"...... but does this delete ALL of the messages??  Or just each individual message?  There are some messages and/or conversations that I don't want to delete just yet.
