I then applied a light mist coat of thinned AT Clear, to seal in the decals, then applied two more heavy coats of clear and let the body, hood and mirrors outgas for about 7 days. The clear was then 'cut' with 3000, rubbed out with 3M Perfect III compound and followed by Scratch X and polished. Appreciate you looking and any comments, thx

This is the part of the build that I love, when everything starts to come together -- detail painted the front and rear wheel arch stone guards(a real pain!), the convertible top compartment gasket, windshield 'A' pillar and wipers. Also added the Plamoz photo etch lower front grill and air intake grill; added the front and rear fender air scoops. Finally applied the panel line accents and added the rear taillights --thx for looking!

We was able to make a lot of progress on the Vette -- added the outside and inside rear view mirrors, front windshield, head light and directional lenses covers were added, as well as the excellent Plamoz PE emblems that have the decals applied to them -- this really makes the realism pop!

View of the inside rear view mirror with decal added to simulate the 'display' that is projected in the mirror; also added 'warning decals' to the sun visors that were cut from the 'snap-tite' convertible kit glass. Also is a pic of the Plamoz PE emblems that i described in the previous post -- a lot of patients in applying the decals!

A couple more views of the almost completed 60th Anniversary Vette -- I think the next post will be 'Under Glass' , we'll see how this all looks with the wheels attached and a good view of the interior! Thx for viewing and all the comments,
