A quick teaser pic.

I think dumping the skirts and going with the Torque Thrusts gave it a very muscular look.

I'm amazed at how the clear coats brought out the color of this paint!!

5 coats of clear and ready for polish.

Still making slow progress on this project.

Took me a good portion of the day to detail the firewall.

 

 

This is where I started.

Excellent work and very good details! This is the kind of work with which one learns how to build a scale model. Congratulations and I'm still waiting for more photos. Fran

Just a few more teaser pics now that the paint is fully polished, the vinyl top is complete and some of the trim is foiled.

The back end appeared as if it could stand to be raised a bit, so some scratch made shackles were made.

Carpet was done on the seat backs, door panels, console and floor.

I didn't like the "track" of the rear wheels, so the rear end was removed and extensions were made to move the rear wheels out slightly.

 

 

 

Likewise, raising the rear suspension made it necessary to make the shocks longer.

The scratch built arm rests were added.

 

 

 

Followed by the arm rest pads.

Finally window cranks, making the door panels nearly complete.

Only some small detail painting and door lock buttons are still required.

Really getting down to the finish line now, Steve. Love the extra care you put into your interiors. My shocks look much like yours. I like the lower tube  to be a nice snug fit in the upper tube so I can adjust the length as I make changes to suspension height. Your shackles look great! Thanks for the detail photos!

I believe that the bottom side of the chassis is more or less done.

 

I think I finally have the stance dialed in to where I wanted it.

Thanks Chucky!

I'm getting pretty close on the chassis, interior and body.

Haven't even started the engine yet! Smile
