68 Roadrunner WIP (Update 9/19/15)

Recommended Posts

Its been awhile since I posted anything. We have moved back in to our house since the fire. I got my work shop back and have started working on this build again and actually made some progress. Started some of the paint work and almost finished the engine. The color is Testors graphite dust with Wet look clear haven't polished it yet and the engine isn't accurate but I'm working with what I have. Still have a lot to go but its moving along.

Just finished polishing the body. It has a few flaws but I think it came out pretty good. Also wanted to give a preview of the look I'm going for. The pic isn't that great but it will give you the idea. Thanks for all the nice comments I appreciate them.

I finished the interior tub tonight. I used the racing seats from the 67 Chevelle Pro Street kit. Cut out the stock dashboard and graphed in a dash from a stock car. The gauges I used were left over from the 49 Merc kit I finished a while ago. I scratched built the shifter. This was also my first time using flocking powder and adding seat belts. You can't see it in the pictures but I added a carbon fiber decal to the back of both seats. I'm thinking I should have used a lighter decal. I wanted to try adding speakers but I could have spent a lot of money with all the things I wanted to do so I just added what I mentioned. I also should've  made my own gas pedal as the one molded into the tub isn't seen at all. Tell me what you think. I don't mind constructive criticism. Thanks for looking and thanks again for all of the nice comments.

Update 12/10: Made some good progress on this. I'll be calling it done soon so the next time I post this project it will be Under glass. I'll let the pics do all the talking. Hope you like what is done so far.

Nice job.

It may just be me, but I don't fret over interiors one way or the other, as they'll never be seen on my cars anyway (except convertibles of course). That color on the body looks great, I really like that.
