Jasper,
Just caught up on your Nomad build. Boy does that bring back some memories from my college days in the late 60's early 70's. Nomads and Dune Buggies were popular even here on LI NY once the surfing crazy took hold.

Outstanding job on the custom work without making it look like a custom. Excellent choice of colors for the interior.

Super smooth finish on the bodywork Jesper, and I like the interior scheme. Very retro.

Looking forward to more.

Cheers, D

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.

Thanks Damian.

Sorry for the 1 image, no text update. Just switched to Flickr and need to learn how to post images.

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.
