Great looking build so far. I'm really digging the steelie wheels. What kit are they from?

The red,baby Moon steelies are from the Black Force snap kit.

They are like rolling on 20's

in the end i think a higher force decided to ruin the cabine :) with a purpose .. it seems i missed something , above the grille and headlights the bodywork needs to run smooth and in my cab / kit it had some openings there ...

so i heated some kit sprue and welded it in the gaps

547665_283813571751560_1820315290_n.jpg

then flattened that

540153_283813561751561_2015974446_n.jpg

then put on some bondo thats now drying

also did some bonde on the edge of the front bumper and new fender edges so its smoother

painted the turn signals with clear orange , sadly i could not avoid to paint the inner edge , but i'm planning to do the edge inside and outside in chrome so then that will be covered up

564744_284041851728732_1485552189_n.jpg

wanted to do the red of the rims in copper but in the chrome lip there was red shining through , not really obvious with the red centers because it looked like red reflection .. but it was actually red under the chrome shining true
so painting only the centers would result in red sticking out from under the chrome like a sore thumb :)
so painted them completly and i will look how this looks i can always paint the lip and hubcap chrome later

561397_284041888395395_1803419073_n.jpg

finished the dash cubbord (????) off with a round edge and pinstripe decal

555130_284041885062062_1275624549_n.jpg

after flattening and degreasing the body got a new coat of primer and well it was flawless and smooth .. i will sand it and do one slight coat again and then try the clear again so wish me luck

564753_284066521726265_1503562605_n.jpg

chromed the strips on the bottom of the bed

484038_284066568392927_2034988015_n.jpg

chrome on the inletmanifold with black in the deeper parts

thnx m8 and hhmm no i only do one project at a time , in fact when i was doing the garage i did not start any car build :)

now i took a break from the garage to build some cars , but i really only do one at a time and finish it completly and then take out a new kit ..

works best for me :lol:

dryfitted the engine

526992_284101418389442_1846362301_n.jpg

hated the way the valvecovers came out so i took some corvette ones with the chevy logo those where not high and by shaving some off the ones glued on the block made the nbew chrome ones on top of the old ..

the old where to glued to remove so using low covers worked pretty good

521899_284101478389436_930386889_n.jpg

painted the chevy logo on the center of the aircleaner housing black keeping the logo copper , that was tiny

then handpainted the inner circle red , really pops and ads realism i think

then it was time to do some painstaking painting , again all done by hand with black enamel paint ..

this time did the whole engine bay black , hated the white and i think the engine will pop more in a blank background

also did the roof again in copper metallic

thnx :)

well i tried bmf on the rims but that was not perfect , then some chrome paint with the handbrush , that looked more like grey ..
so i ended up doing the rims completly black leaving the outer edge copper , i really liked this look

11654_284523468347237_760073587_n.jpg

the sticking out thing in the lip is a valve thing to add air that will be chrome later on

535866_284523478347236_1900331789_n.jpg

then again after all the werk for a second time i went for clear coat and this time it luckely came out great

536646_284620181670899_764647937_n.jpg'
