I dont think I can post anymore wip pics because it will give away the identity of the build. I'm sure a lot of you have already figured it out, but actually at this point it could be 3 different cars. I like to keep the reveal to the end when I post the finished pictures.

Thanks, Retroeguy. I copied it from a 1:1 replica car of junie donlevys 76 ford. Hopefully the builder of that car got it right. Its hard to find actual photos of cars from back then with the hoods up. I was able to find more actual shots of engines from the sixtys then engines from the seventys.

Got the exhaust on yesterday and installed the tire /wheel assemblys today. Just need to bmf the windshield and back glass mouldings . Install the bumpers, grille, headlight and tailight covers, back glass straps, put some aluminum around the rear bumper ends. Install the decals, spoiler and air dam, and finally the hood and trunk pins. I always end up knocking the hood pins off when Im decalling so I let that be the last thing I do.

Its finished except for the hood and trunk pins. I just need to touch them up with silver/ chrome paint and then future the model . Should be tommorow  for sure. Eventually you will see a new discussion topic with a little history on the car and the final photos.

Finally finished. The finished pictures are in a new thread about Dale Earnhardt's 1976 Ford.

Why use alclad when there are Molotow chrome pens in 1mm, 2 mm, and 4mm tips sizes? I love mine!

Patrick, I'm glad you get good results with the molotow pens. I find they only work for me over a white base. They don't give me the chromy appearance that allclad does in my opinion. The one time I used them with good results was when I decanted one into my air brush and shot some wheels with it. what ever you do dont touch a molotow chrome application until you have cleared it with something. It dulls bad when touched no matter how long you let it dry.
