i am trying to finish. i seem to have alot of problems with glue. i use it like it says and on you tube videos, but i still have pieces just fall off the next day.got to try and figure out why. anyway , its happening slowly because i glue a few pieces and let them sit over night and glue a few more.  i have glued the body several times and it does not hold. i have tried a different glue and it seems to be working better.

i m getting really close to the finnish line. most of it is going well.fuel lines are on.i still have to polish the hood after repainting  .its sanded and ready to polish. i can put the hood pin plates on and its done. i took some new pictures  after being back in the shop for a couple of days. there are inner and outer door handles and the mirror left also.i am pretty happy with it. i learned alot again and some i wont do on the next ones. i think we all learn what not to do. hoping the next project will come out batter
