I've got the first round of filler done on the doors. It looks pretty good, but sanding these things are a royal PITA.

Most of the front suspension pieces are painted and ready for final assembly.

It's the corners that suck. I did learn you can get into the corners with a scribing tool. You lay it on the side and it cuts halfway decent, but still a pain.

Here's a rough idea of the interior colors. The turquoise is darker and the tan is more of a light buckskin than what appears in the pic. I've got flocking that is a dead on match for the turquoise to use for the carpeting. The floor and rear wheel houses need one more coat before the flocking goes down.

I realized I screwed up the color scheme with the dash and needed a fix.

Flocked the rear half, not real happy with it, I'll touch up some spots after it dries. It should look good with the amps and subs. I guess I should make/find a head unit for it.

The frame is just about done, A little more work on the front suspension, brake, gas and air lines should button it up.

The color for the body. It's a base of acrylic with nail polish pearl over it. Once the polish gases out I'll clear it with urethane.

I like the color too. I love using nail polish on models. Some of them can be tricky to thin tho. How long do you usually wait before you clear them with urethane?

I apply several thin coats giving each ample flash time, so the solvents evaporate out fast. It usually only takes about 2-4 hours, overnight to be safe.

The floorpan is cleared, if it looks blue, it's the idiot behind the camera. I can't get the proper color without editing the pic.

I started running brake and airlines. I had the rear done, but it was done out of the frame and didn't clear things properly. I almost gave up on doing it in the car from lack of patience, but I got it.

I still need to paint the brake line coupler and the airline manifold/solenoids.

I'll either scratch build them or steal them from the 39 Wagon Rod.

They came out great. If you scratch built them I would love to see photos on how ya did it or what you used. I wasn't aware that the 39 wagon came with them. It's coming together nicely, can't wait to see it done
