I'm not sure what I'm going to do for an air cleaner. Part of me wants to go with an aluminum edelbrock type cleaner, another part of me is thinking a shotgun style blower intake with dual cone filters. Decisions, decisions!

Wheels are decided! I need to dial in the stance, hopefully I have some shorter coils in the parts box for the rear. I added some seat belts to the interior and installed the seats abd door panels.

I ordered some aluminum pullies, steering column, and photo etched hurst shifter. Hopefully everything arrives in time. Now I just need to search the parts bin for some suitable brakes.

How do you do the carpet, spray glue and then drop the fibers on there?

I paint the interior a base color, brush on elmers white glue, cover with flocking fibers, let it dry, then shake the loose stuff off.

"Model car flocking" is generally a fine powder type fiber and some guys prefer to use embossing powder. I fount some synthetic flocking fivers that I feel give a better look.

These first two are the synthetic stuff. The last picture is stuff from a model car vendor. Granted, it is 1/12th scale and the first two are 1/25, but you can see the difference.







And, here is how the Chevelle sits. I cut the cups out for the coil springs in the rear. The front can still come down a little as well. I've got to sort out brakes, then I can get the wheels/tires permanently mounted

Lol. Some people do, some don't. I'm not a fan of cold tomatos so I leave them out.

I got the first round of clear on the body for the Wrangler car. You will find a lot of purists refuse to clear over decals, as that is not the way the real cars were. I prefer for them to look painted on, especially sponsor logos. I feel it also protects everything long term. So, I should be able to level the clear to eliminate the lines from decal edges tomorrow, and re-clear before I go back to work Tuesday.

Radiator and core support are ready to be installed. Just waiting on some engine goodies to complete that assembly before I install it. Aluminum pullies and a wired distributor should arrive today.

Mostly parts box extras. Some braided line and fittings from the NASCAR build make the hose and C&R stencil to give some life to the radiator.

Last one for today. Trying to get some stuff knocked out over the long weekend. The Chevelle has to be done my 6/1 for a Facebook group build off. I'm also entering it in a show on the 8th in Denton.

I added machined pullies, HEI distributor, and a photo etched hurst shifter to the interior. I'm still trying to decide what I'm doing for the intake. I was going to make a twin inlet unit with conical filters, but I can't seemto find my stash of filters. I've got a plain edelbrock style round filter that is polished aluminum, that is my back up plan. A little vanilla, but the polished aluminum will look good.





This is the filter/intake style I plan to build if I can find my filters.

Plugging away on the Wrangler car. This is a box stock build for a build off with a local guy. The only thing we can add that doesn't come in the box is decals. I used adhesive foil decal on the inner fenders and aluminum bits.

I am also EXTREMELY pleased with how the clear laid down. I was able to start with 3000 grit paper to quickly level it out before polishing.

I got the body polished today! Chrome parts are stripped and ready for paint as well.

Body was cleared with Advantage 545, leveled with 3000 grit 3M paper then polished to a mirror shine with Meguiar's M105 and M205. I will add the black painted details and then wax with Colinite 915.

You can see the color difference betweer the decals and the Krylon paint. I swear it was a dead match the last time I built this thing :/

Almost done with the Wrangler car! I've decided to go to scalefest in Grapevine again this year. Sooooo, here I am in a mad rush to finish a couple of builds for the show!

A little detail painting, touch ups, and mount the body on the #3
