Here she is with the second color on the roof and the side insert. The roof is cleared but the side isn't so it's a little brighter. Needs a little touch up here and there. Sorry for the dust – final rubout generated a lot of static electricity...
Static Relief, there's an old Pinstriper's and Sign Painter's trick for working on plastics, fiberglass, plexiglass... Use a spray bottle with plain old water, squirt the backside with the water, pat but Not Rub dry. The static buildup in the plastic should be dissipated. Same reason why washing the piece under tap water works, it serves as a ground for the static electricity to ground out to, just don't rub it dry and recharge it!
Love how this one is coming around. Generally not a huge fan of gold as a body color, yet you got me on this combination. It works and looks great! Please keep this one going and keep updating the progress.
I felt that a simple out-of-the-box interior was in keeping with the NNL theme of "Known Survivors & Modern Recreations" of early custom car models. Unfortunately AMT's 58 Ford interior doesn't present much opportunity for detailing, other than the dash. The kit steering wheel is way too big for scale, and such a shallow interior – luckily I had a FoMoCo substitute of a more appropriate size in the parts box (I think it's from a Lincoln.) I wanted to try something a little different so I made a tonneau cover for the back seat (a custom trend from the period, even in hardtop cars). It's made from tightly-woven bedsheet material coated with acrylic flat white ceiling paint. Testors silver was used to create the snap "detail."
