Thanks you guys. :giggles: Man you all are too much.

Tom: I sent you a reply potna.

Sorry for being absent fellas. Just had all kinds of projects going on the last few weeks so it's been hit and miss on the forums. Yesterday I installed the Shift 4 controller into my truck. Big difference and the truck is so much more driveable now. Shifts normally during regular driving and downshifts like a mutha during harsh acceleration. Just what she needed. Been selling off alot of automotive stuff that I had and got rid of some model kits that I wasn't going to build just yesterday and stashing money aside for project "406".

Started with the OOB panel. Got it adhered onto the chassis of my GT-350 mock up car here just to show what we're starting with.

Image

After 2 attempts at applying the BMF to the brushed aluminum strip on the door and fouling it up right around the door handle area.....I decided to just remove the dang handle altogether and order metal ones from Ted's Modeling Marketplace. I also cut the pocket out of the armrest for the door handle.

There....that worked out ALOT better for me in terms of getting the aluminum panel to look right.

Image

and then with the chrome strip BMF applied around the door panel insert and added the mirror control lever and bezel onto the aluminum strip at the front of the door panel.

Thanks Lee. I'm not finding this interior to be an easy one to work with. The dash is presenting many issues for me and really a test of my skills.

Damn.... I quit! :lol:

Never thought of using BMF on certain interior panels. Difficult it may be for tub style, but doable with separate interior parts. Didn’t know there are AM parts for door handles. I’m learning something new with your builds, Joe.

Damn. You go 100% on everything! Most people would think "Just doorhandles no big deal" nah you have to just go ahead and get aftermarket ones! Can't wait to see the interior finished.
