thanks guys

gonna hop around a bit on this one
will be playing with some styrene stock
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1499_zpsidvpbntn

i think the hole in the hood looks a bit unfinished as they are, i am gonna build up a lip to make it look a bit molded
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1500_zpssvxhp4tw

but first.....
i dont like the molded hood pins
they gotta go
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1501_zpsfxiho2l2

weapon of choice....
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1502_zpslsnd5nhu

the flat blade works well for shaving off extra bits
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1503_zpsfjlelsok

now what am i gonna use to lay in the molding bits...
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1504_zpsy671nrli

i also like the touch and flow applicator for things like this
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1505_zpshvie86qs

it lets you place minute amounts of glue exactly where you want them with no excess

i lay out the 2 side rails first with my specialized clamps
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1506_zpsc1eaalhq

i trim the edges to length once they are glued in place
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1507_zpsxjhh7v6s

now, on the front and the rear is the peak of the hood
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1509_zpsnkci5fuq

this will have to be modified to have things fit right
out comes the file..
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1510_zpsbtsja4uy

altered..
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1511_zpsbztg0tvl

next pieces in place
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1512_zpsfooppdnv

once it dries i can trim them down to size
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1513_zps3keqrpue

71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1514_zpswnbjb8a3

a quick look
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1517_zpsgd6hwekg
yup looks better

now i gotta do something about that ugly ass battery
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1518_zpsflxgq2h0

out comes the flat blade to do some shaving again
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1519_zpsadwz9666

i get rid of the molded on cables as well
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1520_zpsht6qxlwh

once i get them close to flush i grab the flat file and clean up the leftovers
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1521_zpsosjrdb1h

more on that in a later post

now to tinker a bit more with the engine
added a pair of turned aluminum oil filler caps
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1522_zpsrsi8g2ls

one other part bothering me is the front of the blower pulley, i think its a bit ugly
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 Pbucket

i file off the detail
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1524_zpscjmocjwc

and grab my set of PE pulley faces
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1525_zpsp4fo9ard

i find the one i want to use and glue it on with a bit of super glue
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1526_zps2mhiqav6

cya soon with another update

ok time for another bounce around post lol

adding a bit of minor plumbing to the motor
an equalization tube from valve cover to valve cover
i first drill 2 holes
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1532_zpsjssotid3

then grab a piece of blue anodized wire
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1533_zpsk37mncht

90 degree angle at one end and add a crimp bead to act as a fitting
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1534_zpsxwiqgyge

first bends done
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1535_zps8xtbas3v

completed tube
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1536_zpsnxndnvgd

while i am here i will glue the seats together
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1537_zps8edgaiwv

and think a bit about some tube work
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1540_zpsx2g8yu5c

while i will not be doing a full cage in this one, i think it does warrant a decent roll bar

i place a line along the roof in pencil where i want to locate the bar
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1541_zpsl1efnmf1

first bends in place
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1542_zps7h2z9hwq

side bends
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1543_zpsopxa2eu7

i drill 2 locating holes in the interior tub to make fitting the cage easier
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1544_zpsfklakcjy

i slide the primary hoop into the tub keeping the ends a bit longer than needed
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1545_zpsbbpxkbe2

quick test fit inside the body
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1546_zpsgcxt6oru

yea that will work
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1547_zpspcjb8cw6

once i am happy with the height, i trim the excess length from the underside of the tub
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1548_zpseurdrdqn

cross bar in place
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1549_zpszztlxoym

and the rear support bars
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1550_zpsgpjb3bfr

now the bar goes off to dry and we move back to the hood

i want to lessen the ridge of the opening and also get rid of the witness marks for the hood pins.
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1551_zpskrgdlhxi

will have to mark the place for the hood pins so i can add the PE ones later so the easiest way is to drill down through the middle of the witness marks
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1552_zpsk80dslcy

now i cant loose where they were lol

i am gonna sand down the hight of the lip a bit
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1553_zpsjtatiyqv

after a bit of sanding and file work, it is lookin better
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1554_zpsy1iftjzf

i file down the underside of the hood where the ridge is to decrease the thickness of it visually.
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1555_zpsqnuuhon7

final test fit of the roll bar before i send it off to paint
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1556_zpsd6oq0grh

71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1557_zps2lhau0hg

thats it for now, next will be a bit of color in the interior

Nice work on the roll bar, hood's coming right along too! Will that equalization tube be clearing the pulleys though? In one pic it looked like it was gonna need an upward bend to get around the pulley.

roll cage removed again and sent to paint
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1559_zpsrozqf5kz

time to make me some of that carpet stuff

as alot of you know, i dont like flock, never have and probably never will
so my choice for floor treatment is fine embossing powder adhered with future floor polish
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1560_zpsatj6bu4d

i put a bit of future in the bottle of a dixie cup
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1561_zpswmwqnycs

using a brush to apply a nice wet coat of the polish to all the areas i want to have carpet
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1564_zpszzv0jw4a

you can see the shine in the floor pan better with this shot
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1562_zpswmk8a79c

now i am also hitting the door panels behind the arm rests
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1565_zps8h19t7nq

i do all this over a nice clean sheet of white paper so any excess gets to go back in the bottle for next time.
i apply a liberal amount of the embossing powder while the floor polish is still wet.
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1563_zpspb10kovf

then i let it set for about an hour before tapping out the excess
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1566_zpsvseoer4e

now i am gonna send it over to paint just to show the effect when floors are done like this
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1567_zpsgybzcj7v

i load up the air brush with some tamiya flat black mixed with my home brew thinner ( 1 cup water/ 1 cup 50% rubbing alcohol/ 2 drops of dish soap ) and shoot 2 coats on the floor pan
https://2img.net/h/i1315.photobucket.com/albums/t584/Kitbash2012/71%20Cuda/IMG_1568_zpsvmby54gi.jpg

we will let that dry a min or two
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1569_zpsg2xmarrs

while its drying i grab the semi gloss black to hit the dash, seats and side panels in the interior
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1570_zpssoyasml2

when things dry a bit
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1578_zps2dmrw6sq

another angle
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1579_zpshh8dbnjg

back to my PE sheet from Model Car Garage and i find a script i want to use
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1580_zpssod0ktzu

just the smallest bit of thin super glue on the backside and i slide it in place....
then i find i am not real happy with it yet so i hit it with the semi gloss black and blend it into the dash
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1590_zpsdpuvwvix

goofy right?????

nah...

while the paint is basically dry but still a bit soft.. i grab a nice clean tooth pick and just lightly rub off the highest points of the script.

this gives the desired result
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1591_zpsptgfaoev

better shot
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1581_zpsva1565zd

oh Yeah, Paul from FatKid Hobby Products got my order to me,
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1582_zpsqvyoh9jn

Not that i have not or cannot make my own, but these are top notch and save me the time and effort for a great result for the money.

out come the 2 i wanted for this build
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1583_zpsilmsdtxf

gotta make a dual dizzy mount
out comes the styrene stock
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1585_zpsd0lsgwho

the trusty drill bit
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1586_zps7z3w5unx

test fit
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1587_zpsgdhm2ila

i then mark the distributor shafts so i can trim them to length
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1588_zpshttubwgq

mount in place
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1589_zpsmmzbtzj8

you will have to wait for the next update to see them in place and wired up
cya in a while

I like your method for flocking, I'm gonna have to try that one myself, it came out great!

And I'm another Fatkidd fan, Paul's stuff is top-notch, and you sure can't beat his prices either! I've got about 10 of his distributors waiting to be used right now!

ok so i felt guilty and snuck 20 mins in the hobby room this evening just to get an update up

ran the ignition wires
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1592_zpstqxcgi3y
couple more views as i tuck them in where they belong
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1594_zpsyhx6ptlb
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1595_zpsh8bzlg6m

Now i need a blower belt..... how bout some electrical tape....?
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1596_zpsqxh0ayub

i stick it to my cutting mat first
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1597_zpsarn77qrn

then i use a metal straight edge to cut it down to the width i want
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1598_zpss4sldwzy

71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1599_zpsdl4gqmpd

now since i have the width set, i grab a slixx decal sheet to dress it up a bit
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1600_zpsqcc9nobe

it is hard to see here, but gimme a minute....
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1601_zps6gabreqh

decal in place
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1602_zpshpqgolqx

using just a very small bit of super glue on each pulley i get the belt in place and trim off the excess with a sharp hobby blade
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1603_zpsfdhkxpzs

tis a bit shiny so i will tone it down a bit with this
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1605_zpsiroow74h

once the dull coat is dried...
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1608_zps8bjsushm

ok time to play around a bit again lol

decided to add the rear window handles from the PE sheet
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1609_zpsdfhqknyb

was gonna paint them to dull them out a bit but i kinda like them plain metal color

now onto the steering wheel
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1610_zpsmbftb25j

hmmmmmm
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1611_zpshaqmpvws

out comes the center section
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1612_zpsybegotwv

i cleaned up the outer ring with a rat tail file
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1613_zpswkkle3sr

now i know i will have to attach the wheel in place when i am done so i cut the center mount section off the kit wheel and sand the edges down to act as my base
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1614_zpspfpw8rqc

i bent the arms of the wheel center a bit to look right
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1615_zpsfrhwkzqc

using super glue i attach the wheel rim to the PE center
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1616_zpsvnec5wov

a look at the dash
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1617_zpszpajse5t

thinkin i need to paint the wheel because the brass is a bit out of plase
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1618_zpsccm25yyz

so i painted it dull steel
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1619_zpsvslzgagv

and then satin black on the wheel rim
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1620_zpsabzyvcq6

while that dries i am gonna add in some speakers to the interior.. starting with my resin units i prep them for paint
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1621_zpsnkxxhbei

nice coat of gloss black on as a base
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1622_zpsxczwmeyq

with a bit of alclad chrome
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1624_zpse4mots5b

back to the dash.... detailed up the gauges a bit
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1625_zpsbi8no27p

time to add some "glass" to the gauge faces
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1626_zpsdv9szdwe

now carefully i fill each of the gauge faces with the polish and set it aside to dry
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1627_zpsztxlfmgj

once dry, it looks like the glass gauge faces.. works for me
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1628_zps1wawhjqg

speakers were glued in place with super glue
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1629_zpstyx6b64w

then i used flat black on the speaker cones leaving just the surrounds chrome
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1632_zpskzlmbpxg

another lil addition to the build
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1630_zpsp4sq7uko

i like future attractions items, i just really wish they would start including both decals and instructions with them. they can be a bit goofy to install but if you take tour time they look decent
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1631_zpsopsqumqh

building it up
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1633_zpsl90i5od5

ever find yourself at a point where you just wanna set the current build on the floor and jump on it repeatedly?

...
ok lemme back up a step lol
this weeks update
grabbed the floor pan and took a look at the exhaust crossover pipe, does not look right as it is elongated
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1636_zpsqnooc4ph

pulled out the jewelers files and rounded the upper portion to make it look right
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1637_zpsg8vjrrqi

i am doing the same with the exhaust pipes where they follow the transmission tunnel
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1638_zps9ramo59c

71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1639_zpsimixbqjd

while i was doing that, i threw a coat of aluminum on the transmission and mocked it up
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1640_zpsbftd5ydm

that is the kit unit i just cut away from the crappy engine it was attached to

header/front pipe area got a base coat of steel with an overcoat on the manifolds of burnt metal for a bit of contrast
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1641_zps6uw3dvrj

underside of the floor plan got a shot of steel on the exhaust as well
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1642_zpsqedjz19z

mocked up the engine again in the body, sitting on all the factory mounts and it looks like its gonna work
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1643_zpsfk8pohx6


rut roe, base coat of duplicolor chrome
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1645_zpsi4gvoabr

since i am doing a candy job on the lower half i am applying the decals before the final color coats
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1646_zpsjy9dxwbj

using a bit of model master decal set, they went down smooth enough
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1647_zpspt4u00fp

laid out my demarcation line on the side and hit it with candy purple
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1648_zpso3g5ebse

once the purplu dried i got out my glad press N seal and masked off the lower portion of the sides
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1650_zpspxradalj

top half shot with tamiya black
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1651_zpsvj2jbne6

was actually looking great as i peeled off the pinstripe and press N seal
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1652_zpswkuvgzsl

here is where the problem came in, i was also making 2 racing stripes in the same purple so i used masking tape, the 3m blue painters tape, to make it less sticky i stuck it to my cutting mat twice before applying it to the body. and it still lifted the effin purple grrrrr
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1653_zpsyfgv0gva

from one purple to another
71 Cuda - Kitbash - Page 2 IMG_1654_zps4w5lujoe

anyone got a set of hemi decals? lol... cya in a few days once i get this stripped and reprimed

So, if painters tape pulls up paint, what do you use to mask of areas?

Dennis, I don't know what happened with Wayne's paint job, but in my experience, it happens when the paint isn't fully cured yet. I've done it way more times than I can count, and almost every time, it's because I got in a hurry and didn't let the paint cure fully.
