This topic kind of reminds me of the now-departed "lazy barn door garage" thread, which rambled around crazily and made it impossible to find any particular subject matter. If it was just about Jared's builds, I could deal with it. Just sayin'. But I guess it's like a box of chocolates.

nice camo paint work on the ford there harold! :lol: ...even though im not fond of the blue oval..... :blink::lol:

Neither am I. That's why the only ford parts left are cab, interior, and chassis.

Thanks! I used a pin vise drill to open up a small hole in between and then a jewelers file to open it up more. I need a slightly smaller file to get it perfect. Need to also figure out a way to get all the fuzzies cleaned up from the file.

A good way to get rid of the "fuzzies" is to brush some thin liquid cement on the edges of the part. The edges will smooth right out.

Here's mine with mostly supplies and small parts from my Silverado Plow Truck and '72 Heavy Chevy builds. The plow truck was finished but ended up getting dropped and badly damaged. The bodywork and paint quit fighting me and it's well on its way to finished.

My vantage point from the chair.

Angle shot of it with the overflow shelf at about shoulder height to my right as I sit at it.

My photo box doubling as an overflow for painted bodies. The truck topper just got another coat of Future. Just waiting for the Future to set up better before handling. The Heavy Chevy body and hood are ready for final sanding before paint.

On my bench tonight is my Cuda, same ol' same ol' and a friend of mines 440 that were putting together for the Lil' Red Truck I got him, it's his first build and I think I'm just as excited to be a part of it as he is. Yes the Carb is green, that was a fudge up by us, it'll be changed.
