Just started this one last week and figured I'd get some pictures up. So far got the body and interior painted both Pontiac engine blue. Also shot the frame edges with the same color to mimic the factory overspray. I'm in the process of masking off the frame so I can shoot it with black, does anyone have a better way of doing this it's kind of a pain lol. Seats and door panels are in the process of being masked for a darker shade of blue and so far I got some foil on the dash gauges. Thanks for looking.

Thanks for the kind comments. Shot the interior with the second color then with some dullcoat to take down the shine a little bit. Also started the foil on the seats and door panels

Thanks! Hopefully I can get the rest of the frame all masked off tonight and get it painted black. Maybe ill try and pick up some liquid mask, I've never used it before but hopefully it works without too much trouble.

Thanks guys and girls ! :) the badges and scripts are decals from Keith marks. There are a few different ways to do them but the decals are the easiest for me.

that makes my day. Great job! If it was mine (I wish)I would take a little shine off the interior but otherwise it is perfect.

Just a quick update, got my carbs yesterday from mad modeling and I have to say I'm very happy with them. There was absolutely no clean up needed. Also I want to add fuel lines but the pictures I've found look like the fuel line goes into the linkage side of the carb is that right? Any suggestions?

Got a little further on the engine. Started working on the linkage and also started running the fuel lines. Questions and comments welcome, thanks for looking :)
