almost finished polishing the body. assy. is very close. need a few things from RB motion and some radiator hoses. finally found some material i like for the seat belts.

assy. of the body is going well.body is on the chassis. i have to sand and paint silver around the head lites. i made head lite covers out of solid lexan , finished and polished to use to make a mold to reproduce them hollow .the solids are like a magnifying glass but they fit the car nicely

WOW Charlie!  Absolutely fantastic from bumper to bumper, can be easily mistaken for a real car and is a good indicator of success.  I'm ready for a ride if you pass near my house... 👌

Absolutely incredible work.  True craftmanship. I've recently retired from the Fire Service and I'm just starting to build models. I built a corvette in the late '70's and this is truly impressive and probably more difficult then what I did. My first project will be a corvette. A clone of the one I built. I'm sure it will pale in comparison but it will be a start
