Been doing a little bit of foil but it's slow going and nowhere near finished so no pics of that yet. I do have some pics of the interior though. I've used sticky felt for the carpet and parcel shelf, and continued with the seats doing the thread thing. I only have the front seat (redoing the front base) and back of the rear seat left to do but it's still slow going, especially since the thread doesn't like tight corners, lol. The actual colour is somewhere between the 2 pics.
Well the lack of internet has meant I can spend more time on the slow parts of this. I have the interior finished (14 hours of sticking down thread ) and the body is polished. Now I am on final assembly and my only option for getting online is to go to the pub (it's a hard life, lol)
WOW Les, this is turning into a work of art! The top color and the lace go perfect with this car. Just excellent interior work, and a lot of it, but it really shows. Beautiful. sSig_youtheman_zpsb3e30900

Really hoping I can get this finished today, all the glue on chrome pieces are putting up a fight and I have to do a lot of cleaning up on the window surround, every tab that holds it to the sprue is on the outside of the chrome and will need foiled. I also have the clear parts to fit to the lights and glass. It's not too much to do but every part seems to be taking longer than normal.
