Now that I’ve got the main body parts made, or remade in the case of the ends. [had the grain running the wrong way.So need the guide for the sliding doors and all the other doodads.

Here’s what the ends look like if turned and cut on the table saw, there’s many places where this would look great.

It really doesn’t look like I got much done but the front end and grill were a pain to figure out so just went my own way and got er done. Had some fun working on the seats and steering wheel.I got to remember to put in a shifter before I glue up the top.The steering wheel was supposed to look like one with finger grips but looks...
