    Thanks for the comments, having lots of fun painting, or more to the point trying to paint, the gauges are new old stock huppmobile, a really nice looking set with curved glass.
    Hopefully hitting the rest of the car in colour in the next couple of weeks.
    Plan is to finish project by Christmas.

    In colour, Cragar came over on the weekend and provided guidance and laid on the finishing coats, very happy with the result. Some pics from the weekend.

  8. Looking good Thommo, Cragar's bloody handy with a spray gun that's for sure. Although I did see a pic of you wielding the gun quite well too.

    Doing some fiddly stuff, rubbing down hood sides( I can see why solid hood sides were invented) and stained and fitted floor. Just need to make trans/master cylinder cover.
    Wait till after Christmas until rubbing and polishing paint.
