That rear flare work is awesome!!!

 

Is that a custom flare that you made out of metal,and then you used panel bonding adhesive to mount it? Regardless it looks really good.

 

This car is going to look sweet.I look forward to more updates.

Yeah, cut from sheetmetal for auto body use. I don't know how they treat it, but it bends smooth like butter, and galvanized. Then I laminated a strip to stiffen it. When I cut the OEM arch by the door, I got two layers of steel. Makes a great place to sandwich in the new piece. Used 1/2 a tube of 3M Panelbond on each side. The small clamps in the pic above are holding the stiffening strip. It's all done in one step so it's nice and even.

Been awhile since I worked with Kitty Hair. Forgot how rad it is to sculpt with.

For the record, I think the vent looks like shit. Oh well. Too late now.

There are some weird angles at play here because I didn't want to do the door. I.E., a tight curvature in the jamb, and a gradual contour on the flanks. It creates a "meh" fucked up look from a side planview perspective, but looks rad when standing anywhere else. Pretty much what a Cressida is all about.

Time to lay down that product...

Nice work on grafting the front fenders together :)

 

Didn't know that you could sculpt with cat hair.

Do you just brush the resin on, and drag the cat over it ?
