It got nice enought yesterday to do a little spray painting and clearing, so I painted a little on  this kit, plus clear coated the race car for my 50 Ford pick up race team. This one will be set aside for a day or two so I can finish that project.

Here's where it is now.

I got some work done. Lawn work and getting two cars ready for show season has cut into my build time.

I put the kit decals on to break up all the blue, but I didn't like the look. I have another idea.

A little more done. I need a rainy day and a couple of hours to finish it.

I should have used more tan on the interior. It looks funny without a floor shift.

Looking real good. I'm not usually into the old car street rod scene, but something about your build has caught my eye. Maybe just the color. How did you do the carpet? What did you use to get the effect? Keep feeding us photos. Nice!

On the bench - Right now, a mess.

The body is the color the kit was molded in, and I used the same light blue flocking I used in my 32 Ford roadster with Elmers white gule under the flocking. T camera made it look better than the eye sees it. I'm still looking for a good undercoating for flocking, and I may try Micro Liquitape on my next build. The car is box stock as it stands now, and most likely will remain that way.

Most of the time I build 50's to late 60's car, but I needed a break from bare metal foiling for awhile. Thanks for the kind words.

Box stock is the way a lot of my builds will be. Might be one of the reasons I like this build. Keep up the great work.

I got another set of decals but they didn't work out well. The old glue must be funky, and it's turning white under the decal. I'm going to leave them on for now until I find something better.

Almost done.

For carpets I use woodglue but I usually do 3 or 4 thinned applications and flock it each coat on my 32 Vicky project I mixed the custom color added a smidge of metalflake turned out quite convincing so I'm using same mix for headliner looks like the old sparkly material used on 50s n 60s car seats only carpet or tweed looking wish I knew how to post pics besides in gallery

Thanks for the tip. The trailer is done. I still need to order some luggage to load into it.

The license plate decal gave me a hard time, but some Elmers glue stuck the corners down. I really wanted to use it because it's kind of pretty.
