Again, quite a bit of work - albeit largely invisible. '71 Gray Ghost hood has been laboriously worked over to render its origins invisible - ha! The '64 GTO hood features twin faux hood scoops that had first to be ground down, and then attacked with a sanding block set on edge to comprehensively reduce the remaining 'hills' that formed the raised portion of each, blending the same to the surrounding panel work, etc. A vile task and not for the faint of heart. Other additions are new resin grilles (cleaner these, better shape, zero warpage, etc.), a new coolant overflow bottle, and rough decal mock up work that, if nothing else, raises my spirits slightly.
Back to the '70 Titus Firebird - an interior starts to take form. Much floor detail (contours, stiffening braces stamped-in, etc.) remains to be added. I must start somewhere though, and hence all the awful cast-in carpeting 'detail' has mercifully been deep-sixed. No more pedals or pads, whereas a 'consoledectomy' was performed to erase the presence of an undesired detail. Material from a spare chassis was substituted into the hole where the hideous console formerly resided, whereas block sanding again saved matters for it generally looks the business. A bit too thick of section and too tall though, with the panel work dimensions distorted looking back; i.e. T/G replaced the trans. tunnel body with sheet aluminum rather in the fashion of some gruesome stateside mid-eighties Pro-Stock racer. A CDI ignition unit is seen forward on the trans tunnel, whereas the rudiments of a roll cage are starting to take form. Thanks and kind regards...
