circumspect about the tyres too but awaiting the final look to pronounce about it...

the radiator cap... how did you make it? mastic & decal? not sure that was the way...

Thanks for all the positivs!!! I partly agree on the tires, but since it's a showrod....I guess anything works, right??? Wink

The radiatorcap is a piece of plastic sprue that I used my dremel to shape the right way. Then I made a "decal" using a photo of a tube of Toothpaste and glued it to the plastid sprue with white glue. The cap of the Toothpaste Tube is also a bit of plastic sprue.

sure it's a show rod, but it seems to look at one of those awesome showrods of the 60's 70's era, and your tires are too modern and look so much like a toy tire (my two pence).

l like your project too, lot of nice stuff already done and a lot to come soon Wink ; maybe the rear hinge of the jaw looks also too simple and enormous with all the other parts , I think you'll find a quite better way to do a new nice inspired hinge Wink

Thanks for the input. Yes, the hinge is really big, but gives character to the car (and the whole concept) and want it to be perfectly clear what kind of parts I've used for the build. However, I will NOT use the chromed bolts/nuts for the hinge, I have another solution on my mind.

About the rear tires and tires for the wheeliebar, yes - they really look modern, maybe a bit too modern for the average look of this build. But, one thing I've learned over the years is - to follow my first instinct, so these parts will remain! Wink

I'm finishing the headlights. Two old chromed steering-wheels have been used for headlight handles:



And I made scratchbuilt bulbs/sockets:





Making brackets for the wheeliebars:

The skeleton was found in a parts bin so, I really don't know what kit it belongs to! The chair has now been painted flat white but right now I don't know what will be the final colour on the seats and all tuck'n rolled areas.

Had to do a mockup after de-masking the tuck'n rolled areas today. The white is very nice looking on the tuck'n roll - but more custom than showrod so, silver it'll be on those areas.
