    Thank you Kdawgg! Very glad you're happy with your build and it made it safely.

    Sorry the post office workers think boxes are meant to be thrown around. However, that's why I pack the way I do. I've learned my lesson with the shipping companies. It doesn't matter if it's USPS, UPS or FedEx. They all act like they don't care about the packes.

    Modeler's paradise! Those new ones are coming along nicely. Kind of like a mini Ford assembly plant. LOL.

    Looks amazing, Glenn! Thank you for the updates and looking forward to more. I almost feel like I'm more excited for this car than I was for the real one...

    I also made some progress on the SY Coupe.

    Okay, the clear laid down "really" well on this build. Guess everything lined up perfectly (i.e. mixture, spray gun setting, weather temperature and humidity).

    This is actually "BEFORE" cut and buff.

    This is "AFTER." You can see the reflection of the light is clearer and cleaner.

    Then I was able to get "some" assembly completed. 20200329_165522_resized.jpg

    It can't be normal for a grown man to be this excited about a toy car, right?

    Heck yeah! I used to collect 1:24 muscle cars and Nascar diecast. Let's just say I was very passionate about it. I would be on pins and needles waiting for the big brown truck to deliver a diecast model I bought. Heck yeah!

    Hey Glenn, do you lower the suspension on request? I've never paid attention to the ride height on photos you posted. Just curious. You probably do.

    Hello Bob,

    Yes sir. Whatever the owner asks for I try my best to accommodate. So, if they want it lowered or stock height I do as they ask.

    Also, I post pictures of the car at all angles and ask the owner if everything is to their satisfaction before I ship it off.

    Has worked well so far. Always appreciate your comments/posts Bob.

    Okay everyone,

    Got the SY coupe finished up last night. The paint on this one came out great!

    Customer wanted this one pretty much stock with the exception of black bumper letters.

    Excellent to hear that you go that far to accommodate your customers. I know I've said this over and over, but.....you are an awesome model customizer. Top tier!

    Okay all,

    The owner pointed out that I missed the interior on the SY Coupe LOL. Hey, nobody's perfect.

    So, I changed it from the grey inserts to the dark inserts as it should have been :D. So, she's right now. This is another reason I post pictures and ask the owners if it meets their expectations.
