Yesterday I wrapped up interior preparations. The only thing exciting enough to take pictures of is that I set up two sets of Revell '37 Pickup handles to pin on and laid them out based on reference pics. You can also see that the interior panels have been converted from 2-door to 4-door (done previously.)
Today I sprayed the body and related pieces in the Tamiya TS58 "Pearl Light Blue". Tomorrow I will clear-coat everything but for tonight I couldn't resist setting the body and grill on to the chassis for a look. I also installed the trim rings and hubcaps with the FORD letters detailed in red to match the engine.
GM Avignon Blue Met. one of my favorite'r colors. I've got a '34 hi-boy pick up that color and recently a '65 Chevelle wagon. Just a nice "Hot Roddy" color, lays down nice most of the time, the warmer you get it the better it lays on the model.
I forgot for a second that this is a 4-door, when I saw the extra set of door handles I thought you'd lost it,,, but it was me! Everything is looking Swell!

I can't help it..........my head is getting bigger since I was right about this one too.......putting paint on it instead of leaving it in 'finished' primer! LMAO! It looks TOTALLY WICKED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Getting closer. This might be the last update before final assembly which should take place over the next couple of weekends.
The body and related blue parts have been polished and waxed. I love this color!
The interior pieces are all finished. Instead of the typical black and white scheme I went with gray and white which is simply Tamiya flat white and fine gray primer with their semi-gloss clear to give it a sheen. The carpet area is Duplicolor dark gray sandable primer with a flat clear coat to seal it in. (I didn't pull the tape until I got home from work and got some white that bled under so I'll need to touch that spot up.) Steering wheel is Revell '48 Ford and the hot water heater is from Revell's '40 Ford's.
Okay, I lied. THIS will be the last update before final assembly!
Voltage regulator and heater added to firewall:
Fuel lines for carbs finished. Detail Master #1 line and fittings:
Front shocks and headlights, taillights added. I'm a big fan of stock '32 taillights but I hate when people leave them out on the tips of the frame horns on a fender-less '32. Gotta tuck them back by the body!
Now all that's left is to cut and install glass, shove the interior up into the body, install the firewall and wheel wells then glue it all down to the chassis.

This is a good spot to drop a quick note or ask for help. If you are in a bad mood, this isn't the right spot to drop feelings. Thanks for understanding!
RodBurNeR: omg condensing years of model supply, tools and paints into one three drawer cabinet is tough! just the common use stuff, rest will be in boxes in a closet unless needed. this is rough lol

superflekmoonbird: Thanks Paul...they look good. Air temp may be part of it...for comparison some rattle cans (Tamiya) mention 50 degree F and above, Testors Lacquer says 70 degrees..
