  1. Hey thank you! No, not yet. I’m hoping to have it wrapped up in the next few months!

    72 cutlass

    That's very nice! Love that color!
  3. So after I painted the car in February, as previously mentioned, some ghosting came through of previous bodywork, etc. I also noticed a few things I wasn't crazy about when it came to bodywork so I addressed all of those. Add to that how busy my summers are and well...now you know why I haven't updated this since February. Lol Anyways, I finally laid down some color yesterday that I'm happy with! Now onto foil and clear!
  4. Wicked cool thread! The talent of some of you is absolutely astounding!! Here's my contribution. A poorly customized '61 Ranchero. I tried to give the darn thing away at a club meeting and no one would step up. I almost threw it in the garbage and then thought it would be fun to show the guys what they missed out on. Lol Here's a link to the build thread if anybody is interested: Before: After being stripped: And how it looks now. It will hopefully be painted this month!
  5. I went back and forth with myself on whether to do clear then decals or decals then clear. I understand that decals over clear is probably a little more authentic but after looking at a couple of 30+ year old builds at NNL West this month with cracking, separating, and flaking decals, I decided to bury these suckers in clear. I'd rather it hold itself together and look good for many years to come. So with that being said, I got started today.
  6. Thank you! I'm still trying to digest the headlights. I can't tell if I love them or hate them. Lol
  7. I moved onto the headlights tonight. The original builder glued the headlight surrounds directly to the fenders and then puttied them in. For a cleaner look, I made them smaller and then recessed them into the fenders.
  8. Well here it is all roughed in. Now comes the hard part...making it all look like it never happened. Lol
  9. On a weekend getaway to Central Oregon for a little R&R (oh, and my son’s basketball tournament...lol), I brought along the ‘40 Ford to whittle on. In addition to wanting to lower the lid, I also wanted to improve upon the hardtop design a little. I was able to score a chopped 3-window top from the AMT ‘36 Ford Coupe to get the general shape I was after. Far from a slam dunk though. I wanted to retain the ‘40 windshield shape and the ‘36 roof is just a tad too narrow for the ‘40 body. So, much surgery is needed. This is what I had after about 3 hours. The ‘40 windshield frame was chopped about 3 1/2 scale inches and reattached.
  10. A little update...I had this thing in color but there was some ghosting that came through. It's all been fixed (hopefully) and should be sprayed again here soon. I'll post it up when that happens.
