I'd  say you should be quite proud. Looking good. If I had to give myself advice from old me to your age me it would be don't rush and be patient.  You will learn something from every build, Good Luck.

.....You say your not a good builder....c'mon Rusty, that's a very extensive project your undertaking at present, and I can tell you so far it looks killer. Your color choice is great, wheel  / tire combo is nice, and the interior will look boss once finished. We are dying to see you finish this piece so all of the members can enjoy along with you......thanks for sharing, regards, the Ace.....;)

Looks great so far!! As was said before, patience is key. Don't worry about adding tons of details, instead concentrate on making the parts you have as clean as possible and that they fit right. Let paint and glue dry thoroughly before moving ahead. The folks on this site post up great stuff, study what they are doing. Most of all have fun!!!
