Removed the rather large door hinges, for the trunk door.

My original plan was to do the interior in red and black, but I have changes my mind and now do it in a two tone brown. More or less identical to the interior I did on the Hudson.

Very nice looking car Jesper

Is that Tamiya rattle-can primer? Really nice finish, looking forward to some colour.

Cheers, D

Hi Rick. I do indeed contemplate tinted windows. Will do some tests with Tamiya smoke, to see if I an apply it even enough.

Wow!! Like this a lot!! Are you going to tint the windows dark? Or maybe some patterned curtains on shower rod/ring set up?
Go VERY California and put surf racks on top.
Always a sunny day,
Rick

Added embossing powder, for texture, to the new wheel arches and bed. Still in need of another coat of paint. Don't mind the red and light gun metal paint. Can't quite make up my mind, what color to use for the interior, other than a black carpet, so I'm just experimenting.

Have made the new wheel arches. Desided to make a new trunk bed as well, with two chrome rails.





With the new wheel arches and narrowed rear axle there is plenty room for the wheels, but I then encountered another problem. the frame needs to be reworked as well. Ahh well, back to work.
