Recommended Posts

 

Thank you Jim ! The red really pops when in the sunlight and the red metal flake is a nail polish and the color is called Holla At Me.

Rob I used a 2K Clear that I purchased at my local Auto Paint Store.

I have been looking for something to replicate the air cleaner element so wife needed to go to Joann's I tagged along to take a look at what I might find  and I came across a package of different sized and colored ribbon for $3.47 that worked out nicely.

A little teaser to see how the Ranch Wagon will look when finished but I still need to work on getting the brake calipers finished and I also need to adjust the engine some what to get it sitting better in the chassie.

Was able to get a bit of bench time in on the brake calipers which I have basically the shape of all four that have been scratch built so next will  try my best to shape them one at time to replicate a brake caliper.

I have started shaping the brake calipers this evening and so far everything is going as planned so here is what I have so far which I have pictured one that I started that's on the left and one that hasn't been touched yet is on the right.

I have finished shaping all the brake calipers this evening so next up will be to start scratch building the caliper mounts for the front spindles and rear axles then map out the location to run the brake lines.
