« Part 71: Hummer working on the grill Part 72 of Toy costruction series Part 73: Hummer Knocking at the door #9 »

Slow going but getting in the details.
Finished up the inside so sealed it with some danish oil finish.

Had to sand off the back of the rear headrests so the back could lean in just right.
Kinda like the look of the cut off headrest, need to file that away for future use.

Here’s a better look of the grill.

I had to force myself from putting on the bush guard, really going to make the front end me thinks but still have a lot a little stuff where I will be needing to lay it on it’s side so no bush guard at this time. :-[

Working on some doors.

Hunter I have no idea where I’m going to keep it as you say this thing is HUGE
I may need to add another garage to keep it in. LOL
Most of my other T&J projects I shrunk them down to 2/3’s.
But as I’ve said before if you want to add details the bigger the better.

Really pops with that lil dab’l doya oil… Kinda takes me back to my teens and the good old Brylcreem days.

Bit selfish though… where’s the back cushions for the passengers? Not being a military vehicle, they’re not gonna be hardened mercenaries.

BTW, BTW Your battery has been charged. Dutchy mentioned it a while back and if you don’t take it out you may cook the battery (or at least keep wasting ‘lectricity).

Watco Danish oil
It also come in 3 different shades.
What I like about it is just wipe it on and wait a little while and wipe off, great for those hard to reach areas just flood it and it will sock it’s way and cover it all.
Not made for true protection for things that will be used a lot but sure brings out the grain in models.

C’mon #4, you can’t even have breakfast without us (me) Aussies watching you…

Sure as chips more economical than the feminine 50 shades...

I’m an Organ Oil Hard Burnishing Oil fan… It may be rubbish but it smells great… Furthermore, my preference is Dames not Danes (sorry SWMBO.. I know I will be)...

Thanks Ducky I wasn’t sure if Watco got down under so your post helps those in the need down under.
I really shouldn’t go by the brand it’s a Danish oil wipe on application.
Does it help your feathers from the rain also?

Why DO I find it hard to fly??...

With a serious frown on the plumage.
I had it read to me that DO takes about 2 weeks to cure (the brand I use) while TO (my choice of Organ oil brand) takes about 1 week. I have also found that DO does give it a tad darker hue and it depends on my need whether that is desirable. Not sure if Watco is available but I seem to remember the name (or is it Watcome to my brewery).

Cheeze I hate advertising products… but while we (you Shirley) mentioned ”wipe on” I am a fan of MinWax “Wipe on Poly” (I stay away from FeastWatsom “Wipe On Poly” – 4 Aussie readers). Like you I hate to promote but then, I at times are asked for opinions and I will state what I prefer/use). This time I will say that I tried the FW and was not that impressed… however, the MinWax should be renamed ”hens teeth in Australia” (unless you live near a fading Masters) as it’s near impossible to source… (thank you Internet).

You really didn’t expect to stay an untouched/responded virgin???

I am sobering up and the missus’es have remover the VOV tattoo off my back.
With clean language and commitment to this post (now that I have started typing)... while I’m still typing (bleeding on-line stuff… will never take off), I now get an ”Hi-Dee-Do” about you having posted some more (dirty) pictures… I will channel all my organic venom there and try to retain sanity in young htl’s post.
