And, work has begun on the Mary Stuart collar:


nice alignment with the ducktail...







stage one, rough shape is going well! We're re-living our art school days around here.

Keith, don't you mean "sano"? Are you an ex BMX'er?

Looking good. Here are a few shots of the real thing for inspiration. Thanks to Moorespeed in Austin TX for letting me take pictures a while back.

Really interesting to see the progress. What is the procedure after you get the foam formed the way you want it? Looks gorgeous so far.

Wow! Why the shape change? Just going by the pics, it looked pretty close to perfect. Oh, BTW, hate to inform you, but the original still has its gutters

Great work and project. Just curious, i assume you guys are going to make a glass mold from these shapes... what are you going to use for you final layer before spraying your PVA? My buddy and i went from this
to this

To finally this


using a quick-dry plaster which could be sanded to a final shape and smoothness over the foam. However, it did 'spider crack' easily, was not perfect. Just curious what you 'pros' use. Thanks

"pro" may not be the best term - but we both have art backgrounds (I'm a sculptor, even), and we did sleep in a Holiday Inn Express last night..

For this quick plug work we're using the foam with the drywall plaster for shape, then we'll paint and wax it. I used to bondo, but the foam suffers a bit and it ends up being additional work to get it back to where you want it.

I've never really liked PVA - I'm unusual in that way, I suppose.



Here is where we are today - the shape is a LOT better, IMHO. Considering that we can't pull molds off of Kitchak's car (and it has wider fenders as well), I feel like the overall shape and proportions are pretty good - nice and vintagey! good lines.
