Still alive and progressing slowly. I have the turtledeck ready for nerf bars, license plate , and scratched taillights.

It doesn't look very shiny here, but this is the best result I have had yet, trying to use acrylic floor coating (Pledge) thru the air brush.

Looking good Clay.

I have tried Pledge and Johnsons Kleer but couldn't get either to work for me!! Can't get Future over here either.

I had to learn to not spray a wet coat. It's too thin, like Buck says.

Dash made from salvage parts. Nicely cleaned up steering wheel was too large for the remaining space, so I settled for this tacky looking little thingie. I have a cut down windshield drying and then it will be ready for finish fotos.

Nice work Clay. Looks cool.

I see what you meant about the steering wheel.... it doesn't quite suit does it?

I could take a look in my parts bin for you if you want to change it!!

Hi Mr W,

She is looking rather sweet Sir, looking forward now to seeing her all shiny and finished...

Thanks, everyone !
Skid. Thanks, but I have plenty of steering wheels in the salvage. Just didn't have room for any of them between the seat and the dash.

I'll live with it.
