Very good work Terry!  Your new hinghes look great.   Hope you won't have too much trouble with your A pillars, they are probably very fragile now and I was forced to reinforce mine on my current pickup build.  I started with a 58 year old body shell but yours is a newer kit and certainly less brittle than mine.  Great job so far, keep doing your good work!!!

Yup! Broke one of them. Seems to be a problem , that and the rocker panels so now I re-enforced them right at the start

I like that yellow. I think I've found the color for a project in the back of my mind. 

Also, piture does not do the color justice. You should see it in sunlight. Just amazing

Going with that on the body with a pearl white top. All Createx

I've heard Createx paints are difficult to learn to use.  Did it take you a while to get the learning curve down?  Looks great so far.

naw. light coats with a hair dryer between coats. thinned with isopropyl alcohol. about a $1 a bottle anywhere. Gonna need a clear top coat. Better than enamel because it dries real quick. mix it til it's about like milk. All my paint jobs will be Acrylic or Lacquer because the go on so easy and dry real quick. Enamel to hard to spray and dries so slow. Also Acrylic cleans up with water. No mess. I bought a hair dryer for $9 at Ollies. Only way to go

Just looking at this one. Gonna do some work on the interior. Just realized when it's done no one will see the oil filter. I like my oil filter. Rats!

Well, thank you. Think about doing the interior in yellow and black
