    I've done a little bit more. Pretty much assembled the rear seat ready for fitting up when the interior panels are in.
    And also made a start on the seat base for the front seat / battery compartment The front of the seat base has that funny cut out in it so it will fit over the transmission tunnel

    Leeetle bit more progress. Seems to have taken me forever on these front seats. Mainly because I have to have them as a working battery compartment as well as seats. Here's a shot with the seat backs fitted and them installed in the body.

    The sides of the seat were not complete, so I needed to add more material to the sides of the seats to then be ground down and shaped.

    Shaping is complete and now for the final application of putty to fill all of the faults and join lines. Still need to sand it tho.

    Oh, and I seem to recall mentioning somewhere that I made an error in the design and it turns out that the standard battery was not going to fit :( Luckily there exists shorty batteries on the market now :). So meet the new battery that is destined for a life under the seat. Just need to get a second one later on.

    I plan on building a Hotrod some time soon. I have the body already. Just finding the time to build it is all that I need.

    Well .... ish!

    There is a candy apple red, or a deep vibrant purple.... These are all solid colours. It the one I think I'm going with is a base of black (oh yay ... another black one I hear you say), but then the main large areas will be inset with a green design striped with silver.

    In other news, I have been working through my back log of video editing finally and have release episode #3. Episode 4 is scheduled to be released in 2 days. It's from a prior time so the video hasn't caught up to the build point yet!

    Very nice. And there ain't nothin' wrong with black. My bike was black, I've had at least a half dozen cars or trucks that were black... And two RC's even. And the purple...is it like a deep, almost black eggplant kind of purple, or more of a dark wine (reddish) purple color?

    Tomorrow I start the long drawn out process of masking and painting Dave's HiLux. Well, the inside any way. When that's all finished, I will totally mask it (the inside) and strip of the outer masking film, and do all the final outer colours masking and paint, since this truck will have the final colour sprayed on the outside...and it will actually be the first all air-brush paint job I've done so far...

    Went I got my bike all those decades ago, it was purple, but not a nice purple...more that glittery metal-flake purple from the late '70's...real cheap looking. But that purple that looks like it was made from blood, that deep, lustrous wet-looking purple...yeah man.

    That's a nice, rich purple. And that iridescent green against the black, very sharp...
