I finished the body painting, installed the interior and attached the body to the frame. Now I need to paint the door handles and a few other things, add the fenders, lights, window frame etc, add some radiator bracing and I think I'll be finished.

OK guys, I completed the duce. Fun little build. I've been watching Misfit Garage lately and felt like one of those guys modifying one of their cars.

Sorry it took so long, I had a few other things I needed to finish up first.

Thank you Johnny, it didn't turn out quite like I envisioned but I'll go with it. Just more experience and I'm happy with the color. I do have proper ignition wires now for the next exposed engine. Next time I need it invest in some PE I think.

Looks pretty dang good to me Steve! Paint work looks great and you've got the engine detailing down as well. I will say that PE wire looms/ separators really do alot for the spark plug wire routing look and look forward to seeing your efforts with it on the next auto build you do.

P.S. There is an active auto section over at SPAM too ya know.....just sayin. Wink

Normally, when I look at a car I see the interior last.

Not this time ! The color you chose for the interior makes the whole car POP!

( And the engine is "to die for" !)

 Dont worry about the thumbprint, paint it Rust , and call it "Battle Damage".
