    Yah, I didn't want to use the clay as it may risk damaging Rich's paint job later but I couldn't think of any better way to do it with the limited amount of time I have to work on it. I'll just make sure to clean it real god before I send it back.

    the undercut is going to stay like it is. it saves me the hassle of cutting that out after I cast it.

    Ok, once the fender was sectioned off it was time to put the backer on.



    this provides the point at which the mold stops.

    then I added the sides and that one is ready to pour



    time for the silicone mold material.



    after it set up I pulled the cab out of the mold and started on the last piece for this body which is the roof.

    I kept the filler panel in the back window and added sections to block the rest of the windows.



    more tape was added to protect the body and then the backer panels were installed.



    finally the sides were added and this one is ready to pour.



    And for those that might be interested, I have somewhere north of 15 hours in these 5 molds. Once I get the blazer body i'll be doing this about a dozen more times

    Some dawn and a very light touch with a scuff pad or even a scrub sponge in the sink always cleans my stuff fine of contaminants, just let it dry in full! Nice work btw.

    This is certainly a labour intensive exercise so many hour just to make the moulds & then you have to make the panels
    Your defiantly a true craftsman & it is a privilege to watch you create

    Thanks for sharing

    I normally do that but silicone can be tenacious. fully cured it's not an issue but get some of the uncured material in the surface and you can see it permeate the paint and spread. then it's hard to get rid of. I ended up washing it twice, then cleaned the whole thing with alcohol, and washed it twice more.

    Thanks. then end result is what keep me motivated to push through all the tedious work.

    Well I pulled all the molds from the body. left a bit of a mess and gives you an idea of how much sacrificial material is needed in order to make these.



    but ultimately the molds came out real nice.



    I even did a quick casting of the tailgate.



    then did a quick test hit in metal and it came out just like I had hoped.



    now it's all packed up and heading back to Rich so he can finish what he started.

    Thanks for letting me borrow the body bud!

    So, are you both making metal bodies? Did Smiggy get a spare set of resin castings to work from? If a tiny truck leaves Cleveland at two thirty going fifty miles an hour, and another leaves Philadelphia going seventy, will they ever meet in the middle??

    Thanks! I knew you wanted to get the body back so you could finish it and i only needed to cast the areas you modded

    No. i'm the one making the metal bodies. i'm just borrowing Rich's great talent to make molds of for myself. Smiggy will be getting something from me to drive as trade for borrowing the body.
