Looking good, is this going to be a stock build? That color looks grey in the pics.

Yes it is,i thought the color looks a little off,but then i see other pictures on the net and it looks almost exact.

Okay some progress,engine is painted gray as Ford changed the color,also modified the valve covers couldn't find any pics with kit pieces.I had no gray spark plug wire so i went with black.IMG_5673.thumb.JPG.068a9c34d430b390f60c6a3e3bc20b4b.JPG

I also modified the seats a bit,i cut off the recaro headrests and used headrests from a 69'Vette instead.IMG_5669.thumb.JPG.bc39772ee512161f761f9152e9583673.JPG

Going with a white /blue interior,so 25 minutes of masking for 2 minutes of painting,also changed the steering wheel the kit one appears to be from 79-82.IMG_5674.thumb.JPG.23133ea07a482b72ab6fe71b91c74ca8.JPGIMG_5675.thumb.JPG.2ca824241e3b12082098979fd2e9315e.JPG

Thanks for the comments guys!,the interior is finished i used my old Detailmaster woodgrain sheet for the instrument panel and 93'svt gauges for the speedometer and such.The pedals are from a 66'Fairlane


I added P/E keys and turn a turn signal lever made from stretched sprue.



The finished interior: seatbelts were made using Pactra 1/16  masking tape and colored with a blue sharpieIMG_5688.thumb.JPG.36db459554a1f20a9502c39ae2409127.JPGIMG_5689.thumb.JPG.345ae8ba67d74e4bdfaf0d8ef23f27d4.JPG IMG_5687.thumb.JPG.63eceb1736dcd864dc0235f4a81562b1.JPG
