I put the interior door panels into the body and carefully applied cement to the edges.Then I closed the doors and applied a clamp.Ensured the doors will open properly.   1529373699971-776323118.jpg

Lookin' good on that Ford so far. My dad had bought a new one only with 4 doors as it was a family car. I have that AMT '57 Ford kit in my stash, but like many others I don't know when I'll get around to building it

Looking good. 

Front splash pan is painted Argent (aluminum) from the factory.

Have multiples of this kit built, it's my all time favorite kit.
