That's awesome. I got at least two cars and a truck that need painting.

Ha! Right, Steve!. No, we're moving closer to the airport which will make life way easier on my commute. Right now, I'm about 1:40 to the airport and a future position may come open where I might have to drive there every day, and having a 1:40 drive one way ain't gonna happen. I mean, when would I have time to continue and start more threads here?! I'm already slacking as is!!

Plus, this move also puts me closer to there other airport where my planes are hangared. This benefits everyone when Operation DABOMB happens in a town near you. Not familiar? "Distribute A Bunch Of MCACN Brochures" is akin to the old WWII chafe idea where a bunch of small metallic flakes are dumped on towns from the air jamming radar signals. I'll drop buttloads of show brochures across unsuspecting towns advertising the show! It's bound to be a hit! I just have to remember to open the boxes before I throw them out.

Cheers
Dave

I'm glad you're back, Dave. I'm also glad you're still in Texas.

Hopefully, WI is a little too far for his "buttload" campaign..

As I continue to collect parts, this just came in and I couldnít be more happy! A real side grille which Iíll 3D scan and do a mirror image of for the opposite side.

I was contacted by a gentleman in Germany who stumbled upon my thread and he offered to sell me this part since he was so excited about seeing someone build one of these things from scratch. 3D scanning it will allow me to replicate it exactly and reverse the image to fit the passenger side.

The Body Buck gets moved later this month to the new shop at the new house!

Cheers
Dave

Wow, that part is in really nice condition too, no clapped out junk to work from.

New house/shop ? I've heard about such a thing, but haven't seen any proof yet...

That's the plan, Charley. Anxious to see the results!

Oh, there's a YouTube Tube to come on the highly anticipated, longly overdue, nobody cares about update to the life and times of SuperDave!

Cheers
Dave

I've been wondering what's been going on with you.

why don't you 3D scan the whole car? Make the build a lot faster
