    Really looking good. Ideas o the finish sounds good. The fiberglass will provide a lot of strength for the day to day flexing.
    Thx for sharing, Rick H

    LOL..... What a project!

    How many hours of carve time are you up to so far?
    Oh wait, never mind that, how many hours of design time are you up to so far?

    Just fan freakin'tastic, it makes me smile!

    Thanks. I haven't kept accurate track of time. The front fenders weer done in 4 pieces, about 3 hours for three and an hour for one. Similar for the rear. Hood in 4 sections, 2-3 hours each. Rear tailight sections about 2 hours. I've been using mostly the 3/16" carving bit in draft mode - it leaves lines, but because the sections are relatively smooth and not fine detail these cane readily be sanded out. Usually projected and actual carve times have been similar for me over the years, but 3/16" in draft mode has been almost half the projected time, which is nice. The grille was the longest time at about 4-1/2 hours. Many, many hours in design, using mostly the 3D tools. Probably 30 hours or more. The front and rear fenders were designed in 1/2 scale, then enlarged and sectioned off to make the pieces, about 12" wide.

    Well it looks like a fun project, that's for sure!
