    Thanks again guys for the encouragements. Very appreciated.
    Hello and greetings everyone.....today's progress..

    Reshaped roof and made a bit better look and fit.
    Vacuumed formed it, and actually trimmed and left the first pull on the buck,then went ahead and did another pull right over top of it.
    Came out pretty good and worked fantastic.
    Plus it's super strong as I had hoped.

    A little clean up and a few small details started on it.
    Enjoy and thanks for looking.
    Slow goings, but the basics are their...yeah !

    And...….
    Yes you can vacuum form over a styrene buck.

    First attempt I wiggled as I dropped it on table.
    You can see wrinkle in hood and center of grill.

    Second attempt...…. "Nailed it" !!
    Hope you all are enjoying the build... More soon.

    Great work, as always! I love the idea of vacuum-forming small pieces and then putting them together, as opposed to trying to pull a whole body at once. I need to build a vacuum table... it's number #762 on the to-do list...

    Grill turned out less then desirable.. But I am going with a used look for this one.. We'll run with it and see what happens.
    Thanks for all the peeps.
