Looking good.

Curious, you are building a three window, but the box on your bench is for a five window? Did you re-scribe door lines to use the three window top?

Thanks everyone.

Richard - for the color I'm thinking a flat mint green? I'd like a dark purple too.  Haven't decided.

JC - the wheels come with the repop kit. Tires are from Modelhaus.

Jason -  the coupe top aligns very well with the body. Comes with the trophy series version of the kit  No re-scribing of doors needed.

Love it, with a little finishing of the body seams it wouldn't look out of place in the K2 primer and a little dusting of guide coat to look like a project car that was just being driven to work the bugs out before final paint.

But I do like your dark purple idea, just for a test do yourself a test spoon in the dark purple with bright lime, both in pearls, you might really like it.

Thank Del.  I am planning to work on the seams.  This was just the first primer shot for a mockup and to see all the imperfections. Won't use bothe green and purple together.  Not for this build.  Good idea on the spoons though.  Will help me decide.

Today was mostly engine work.

Thanks Tony.  The engine is going through some changes to correct the fuel lines.

PB finally uploaded my pics. Here's a bit more.

Polished the grille that I'll be using. You can see the difference there of before and after. Painted black behind it so it stands out hopefully. And a few more mock ups now that the paint is close to being done.

I am curious what changes you are making to the fuel lines...

I had noted the "non-traditional" fuel system you had installed but didn't say anything since some builders hate "rivets".

love it !!! paint ...engine ...looks great

mybe n idea for the grille , use the surround from the kit , cut out all the middle untill you only have the outside of the kitgrill , paint that bodycolor and cut the p/e grille to size of the hole and glue that in from behind .. could look awsome ??

 

just a brainfart ....
