    Sprayed on a few coats of Polyester Primer-Surfacer today.

    Should bring out any imperfections that need attention

    I’m interested to see how many parts the mold will need to be. As a few return edges to deal with and the scoop / air vent return edge also.

    looking good

    Liking it, so 'American' but still in keeping with the rest of the car.

    Got the plug/buck painted.

    This is the last step before a mold/mould will be made from it.
    I paint it black because any imperfection will be seen. Not my best job of painting but it will do. I started spraying the paint before I had the gun adjusted right.

    The pictures don't portray any problems with the paint. Looking forward to seeing how you construct the buck since I need to create one too.
    Thanks,

    Nic.

    Making a little progress.

    One of the hardest things for me is installing the parting flanges and where to place them, so I'll try to show that part of the build in more detail.

    Here are the materials that will be used to build and install the parting flanges.

    well I get the first three products, totally logical, but the last one has got me scratching my head on how that comes into play....
