Im building this one for my wife. I let her pick out any car she wanted at the LHS and this was the one that she liked the most. We are doing a white exterior with red interior and a WHOLE lot of chrome on this thing. She wanted to go the roadster route, but didnt like that. this will be a convertible through and through.

Here the seats are in with the roadster top on it (going with the white walls)

I cant get the lighting right, but I can assure you the red is not nearly as eye burning as it looks.

Front and rear seats done

Center console and dash painted with some trim applied

And then the door panels

MANY of the spots that look like they have chrome spilled on them are just shine spots from the lighting. this has been one of my best so far (which may or may not being saying much)

Ive got alot of the suspension currently drying in gloss black. The under carriage is flat black and drying as well. I should have the tub more or less assembled this evening

STAY TUNED!! (criticism welcome)

I like the way it looks too. With the seats covered, the tonneau doesnt sit all that well with the body and the rests for the seat. there would be alot of body work I dont want to try out on this one required

I really love these old T-bird sport-roadsters, and the color combo you're using is about the best on them, I think. The wire wheels and a lot of chrome should really make it pretty. Lucky man to have a wife who takes an interest in your hobby.

She doesnt understand a thing I say, but she says she likes to listen and see what it all looks like when it comes together. Ill do this and she will watch one of her shows (that I can tolerate to listen to/glance at <_< )
