1964 Pontiac Bonneville Convertible.


Recommended Posts

Thanks everyone!

 

Beginning to get a little of the interior detailing going.

 

Foiled the finned dash bright work panel and the Bonneville emblem and darkened the backgrounds on both.

Also painted the wood dash panel and the steering wheel spokes.

 

Just the beginning of a lot of detail going into the dash and other interior parts.

Anybody know why there seems to be a problem with uploading photos onto the forum?

Haven't been able to do a simple copy and paste for the past couple of days.

Had to post these linked photos from my Fotki account.

Moving along with the interior, today I got a start on the Alclad for a bunch of the interior parts, and while I wait for them to dry, I began a few other details.

 

Got the dash mounted tach ready for a decal, painted and grunged up the ash tray, finished the wood grain on the dash and steering wheel, added the kick panel vents and detailed the courtesy lights in the door panels, and darkened the seat, door panel and dash gaps.

Just so everybody knows, the only reason that I decided to build this model with the ash tray, is because I decided early on that I wanted it to be a 4-speed car, but I like different, so I wanted to eliminate the console and do a console delete with the shifter on the floor.

Non console cars had an ash tray in the section of the dash where the console met.

I didn’t find out in time that the piece of ridged trim that existed on the lower dash to carry on the design of the console didn’t exist minus the console, and I had already cut a small section out of that portion of the dash to replace some of that trim.

Once I became aware that the trim shouldn’t be there on a non console car, I decided to cut the ash tray section out of the dash, and I figured that while I was at it, I could just as well take a few more minutes and build an ash tray so that I could build it in the open position.

So you see, not so much some kind of epiphany, but more of a solution born out of necessity.....with a little elaboration. 😊

Ashtray, next I assume you're going to get the engine running, this is so much fun I don't want you to finish this one,  can't wait to see what you'll super detail next 😁

Me, too! How about a key with a lucky rabbit's foot key chain?
