Got it painted tonight. Ford pagoda green just like the company used on our work trucks back in the day. This was the first time I’ve used water borne paint...not to be confused with acrylic, this is the stuff they use at body shops. I used an activator because I wasn’t going to clear it. I wanted less of a shine since it will be slightly weathered anyway. It turned out pretty good but if I use it again in the future I think I need a water trap for my airbrush.

That wiring looks incredible. I'd love to know what you used and where you sourced the materials. I'm dying to start adding wire plugs like the orange ones you have there.

Also, nice touch adding the lower panel to the front of the utility bed. I realized right away that is something I plan to add once I get around to building mine.

Looks amazing. What engine is that and is it box stock?

Thanks. It is supposed to be a 352 and it is the engine form the kit with a lot of extra detail.

Thanks. The wire is called”wire wrapping wire and I got I on amazon. The boots are made from phone wire. 

The lower panel is something they really dropped the ball on. Also if you want to go farther it needs to be boxed in under the bed to but I was too lazy to do that.
