Brett....i am totally digging this build. I am loving the chopped top and that ride height is perfect. That color on the roof looks great!! You going to do the whole car that color??. Keep up the awesome work.

thanks Chris, Got the black on ( a nice satin ), you'll have to imagine the roof as its still taped up at the moment, I think once its been foiled and chrome installed it'll look chithot man :D

I did have a backup colour to go over the black but as it came out just as I envisaged it, it aint gonna happen.

Thanks guys,got it foiled but no pics yet

. I do use Tamiya putty as a finishing filler, most of my body work is done with styrene and super glue with baking soda. I dont seem to have a lot of success with the Tamiya cement but it does soften styrene filler pieces pretty good.

All that slice-n-dice on the roof sure looks great under paint. Good stuff.
