This is my first update in about three months, but progress has been slow and steady since then. I'm still in the putty/primer stage, but getting very close to a real paint job I think. The parts that needed plating are at The Little Motor Car Co., and I should have them back late this month or early next I hope. This one has really been a lot of work, and never would have even been attempted if not for being here on this site. Thanks many times over for all your encouragement! Gary

I've been building custom models since the 50's. Does that make me experienced, or just old? I'm old! Gary Hatstat
Man do i like that. Can't wait to see it painted!!! Not quite sure about the 58 Chev side trim though, looks alittle thick, been going over the pics, still not sure. But you are the builder, if you say 58 Chev, okay. Put me down for one if it gets casted, no talent here.

I agree about the side trim if you're trying to duplicate the original... looks like factory trim to me. Might think about the trim from the Trumpeter Bonneville as a thinner alternative or simply make your own. Aside from that, the progress is great... looks spot on.
