Up next.

Completed this one about 8yrs ago. It got  boxed up before the paint had completely cured. It came out of the box with some good size dings and impressions. I've posted this recently, after thinking about it I decided it needs to be redone.
Stripped and ready for a fresh start.

I trimmed the front bumper and removed the grill mounting plate. The grill is going to be sunk in further then stock.

This kit is typical of AMT, terrible fitment of most everything. Although I do have to say the engine detail and engine bit provided are really well done.

Tried some of the Scale seat decals for the first time. Not too bad, they don't do too well with the Micro Sol I have a number of applications with little softening of them. I will try the hair drier trick next.

Thanks guys. I am pretty excited about this upcoming paint job. Working on the bumper today, trying to incorporate it into the body.

Spending some time on the bench this weekend.

The current state of the front bumper. I also cut out the kit grill mounting "plate" the plane is to recess the grill.

Still have a few applications/steps of filler and sanding before paint.

Stock kit bumper on left.

The seats look great Curt and the bumper work is spot on.

I did some scraping on the hood. I enjoy shaping, I find it very relaxing. No real plan when I started, here is where I ended up tonight.

Wow, that's a lot of effort. It's paying off though. I'm starting to get impatient lately and seem to be rushing things.

Top job!

That's a subtle but nice change Curt. Nice work.

Changes are subtle. It was a lot of work on bumper and grille. I like the egg crate grilles, similar to '55 Chevy, as a masculine appearance. Keep up the good work, take breaks as needed.
