Color coat applied, engine paint & detail in progress, wheels painted the same Alclad dark aluminum as the bumpers/grille. Need to paint & detail the interior, chassis, etc.

While I was prepping for paint I realized my kit came without the dash (Doh!), so I contacted Revell to obtain a replacement.

More to come...

...Testors Mythic Maroon, would it? Looks very similar to the color I laid on my recent '67 Vette project.

like your on to a great build. Very nice. I really like your detaling on the flathead.

Just a few shots with the wheels. May have to see how the rear ride height is with the interior tub in place. Don't want it to be a tail-dragger...

Will be spraying the clear coat today as we have another beautiful clear day in the high 60's!

--actively dislike them, in fact--but I must say that I kinda like where you're going with this one. From me, that's high praise!
