Nice details... and the clear coat has a nice shine on that silver.  

Thanks. I actually hate doing silver paint jobs because I feel like I can never get a good shine out of them.

When I opened this kit the exhaust tip had broken off the muffler and I didn't really like it for this build anyway so I drilled a hole in the muffler and used a piece of solder to finish the tail pipe and piece of tubing for the exhaust tip.

I also wanted to give the rear a piece of trim under the bumper to help it look more factory so I used a piece of strip styrene cut to the right length.

I sanded a notch in the rear trim for exhaust clearance then painted it flat black. I painted the exhaust tip with some chrome paint then installed everything. I also found a license plate from my spares box.

This one is in the home stretch, and should be done soon.

Got a few other stalled projects in primer too.

Some good looking projects Pat, do you have WIP thread started on them?

Should be on most of them ,  but i started the Woody Magnum about 12 years ago and the others haven't been touched for awhile. The Cannonball and finished builds is about the only thing I post on here anymore.

The Accord is done. I got the last of the lights in and she's ready to cannonball.

 

 

I like it , looks like any other silver car going down the road. Great job!

Pat, have you considered joining one of our Bring Out Your Dead group builds? We just started a new round, which ends on June 30. B)

Lots of things on this year, so I'm retiring from this years build.
Good luck to everyone; things looks great so far.
I'll be stopping by every now and then...

I'm feeling it too but we still have enough time to get re-interested in the challenge... I'll probably come guns-a-blazing at the end. I've just have too much life happening right now. I am interested in building that 64 Olds convertible though... 😆

I'm in the market for a shop truck and I've been looking for one to buy, this body style is pretty popular on Marketplace... minus all the hard work you have in your build, 😁 it's looking great! I'd like to see a 2007 and up Silverado bodystyle get kitted. I like that bodystyle too.

Congrats Andrew on getting your silver stealth machine to the finish line. Those wheels/brakes look badass!

The team is making progress on the race truck. They are right now trying to build a dash for the cab.

That's gonna be one mean truck, Anton. A strong contender for the most extensive re-engineering award! 👏

The latest thought.. pushrod suspension mod to make the rear suspension more interesting and give the massive tires some more space.31C18F47-4137-4A6C-9852-4C8A7B490272.thumb.jpeg.726b0bbf0058d89d252547855c2693c0.jpeg

Hey together,

To get myself back into modelling and stop only collecting and to prevent my friend Rico stopps supporting me with modelling items, I like to enter with this RTR inspired 69 Mustang using some GT500 parts.

What do you think?
