Chassis painted and cleared but I have it a snag with the rear axle.  The one I have chosen to use (Ford 9" from a parts box) needs some PSR.
I have also started PSR on the floor pan (sink & ejector pin marks).
I need to examine the dash to decide if I will just convert it to RH drive or scratch up a full custom one.

Why do I see it doing wheelstands?  ;D ;D ;) ;)

And painted RED!

there's a TV Show Called Graveyard Cars,Not Too Long Ago, they did a Dodge A100 as the "Little Dead Wagon"instead of Little Red Wagon! I've Also seen an A100 on the TV Show Overhaulin, They Really went All Out on that Truck! Good Luck with Your Build! Dan

Thanks Dan.

Kit I'm thinking cream or a rich grey with maroon detailing.  But that may change as have just pictured it in cream and green.  Hmmmmm.

Body prep time.
I've sanded all the mould separation lines (all except those I missed that run through the rear lights) and glued on the parts that need tp be glued on before painting.
Some filler will be needed.  More if I decide to build it without bumpers and fill the mounting holes on the pans.
RH Drive conversion is done.  Incredibly easy on this kit as the IP insert is the same size as the glove box lid and the dash is symmetrical.

Thanks guys.  Some rough edges there but it'll be semi hidden under a cover (with clear windows) between the seats of the ute so won't be out in full view like it would in a Hot Rod.

Thanks Chris.  Mounted it in the chassis today which means I can get to work on the modified engine  cover.

Body is resisting paint.  I'm having trouble getting even coverage.
Nobody panic.  I have a plan...
