While I’d rather be outside doing something, the weather has different plans. Anyhow, I’m about 95% finished with the chassis. Got a nice weathering layer on it, painted in some details, but there’s just a bit more to do. I’ll let this dry for a couple of days, then finish. Again, for texturing the base of the car, I used steel wool that has been soaked in vinegar and hydrogen peroxide, then left to dry over the summer. Everything gets a nice coat of flat clear before proceeding to the next layer. As I mentioned before, I haven’t decided on the final configuration, but hopefully in the next day or so, everything will come together. It’s starting to take shape!

I’ll usually let these projects set for a couple of days in between adding things just to let my mind clear and come up with new ideas. But since it’s nasty outside, I decided to press on. The second layer of weathering for the body consisted of bring out some of the detail using pastel chalks to fill in the seams and grooves. Since this car has been sitting outside for a very long time. I added some greens for moss, blacks for mold and brown for more surface rust. It’s really beginning to look like it’s been outside for a very long time. After painting the interior a leather brown earlier in the week, it’s now time to give it some weathering as well. I gave it a light coat of spray adhesive, let it sit for about 15 minutes, then brushed on crushed steel wool that had soaked in vinegar and hydrogen peroxide and dried over the summer. It gives it a nice texture. Once it’s nice and dry, I’ll add more weathering to it. I also started on the wheels and tires. I’m still haven’t decided the final configuration, but at least 3 of the tires will be flat and one will be off the car. I have to give it some more thought. The base was given it’s first coat of flat black, detail on it will come soon!
