...have been thrown in so far. I’ve had about thirty kids place hands on it so far, including to visually-impaired students today. I didn’t expect them so I didn’t prep anything for them to do. After a little scrounging around, I was able to get them to do the sanding/masking work on the rims.
Last week saw the finished paintjob. The blue paint took around three coats to cover well, while the yellow pinstripe was created using masking tape and Rustoleum Pro Yellow spray can. I spent that Friday morning skipping important meetings touching up the corners.
Oh…and it’s now watching you.
I haven’t settled on a name, though it’ll be known as the Grady Gator.
I met last weekend with a little woodworking. Using lauan(sp.?) ply and a jigsaw I busted out the various body panels which will be added to the car.
And remember the empty grill?
So far so good right…there’s more.
Next is that dang tail. And figurin’ some way, other than gluing and screwing, to attach the body panels to the car.
Last but not least – I never put of the “initial design” in my first post…it’s here, and I’ve thrown in the scan.
