Okay. Nice try. “shaggin’” and “dizzy”. There is no way that you are not Australian. I cannot believe that someone who has not lived here for most of their life could do this.  There are guys here in Oz that are just jaw dropping at this.  Not only is it Incredibly fine work, but RC as well?  Well sorry I’m just not buying it. Fess up, come on. You live on Sydney beaches don’t you?

insanely good Preston just insanely good.

Hey there Chris!  Thanks mate! Lol...yea...I started with my shenanigans again...lol!  I think I may have been an Aussie in a previous life.... there’s always a sense  of ‘deja vu’ when I look at pics and watch videos especially the earlier ones...lol...and most of the lingo or slang seems so familiar...

So another small update ...lol

Been getting my butt kicked over the last few days trying to build the door mirror...:blink: finally I sucked it up and started to kick back :lol: .!

Still need to tweak the arm on the mirror a bit, hoping to start laying down some paint and some chrome tomorrow when I get home from work...will get the rear bumpers done and installed as well. I believe that the Sandman door mirrors, handles, and window trim was blacked out from factory, but I’m torn between painting the mirror in black or painting it orange...

Anywho....here’s a few pics...more to come soon!

Wow...! I got another update !.....:blink:   Yeah...I don’t believe it either! :rolleyes:

Got the mirror and the door handles painted and installed... but like a big doofus, I forgot to make a mold of the door mirror so I don’t haveta build it again :   But it’s not permanently attached as yet, just being held on with some Tamiya double sided tape, so I guess I can pull it off later on and mold it... I used some bare metal foil for the mirror itself, but I think the next one i’ll paint instead !  I got the rear bumpers chromed up as well...I was rushing to get it done and I forgot to apply some glazing putty to fill up any pin holes, so now the bumpers look pitted in some areas :wacko:  they are being held on with double sided tape as well. I think later on I will cast another set and prep them properly before applying the chrome paint.  

Anywho...here’s a few pics of where it’s at....!
Watcha think?
