          I'm never again going to wait until the last minute to finish up a project, yeah right....
          i give the project an A for effort but a B+ for shaping.
          there was suppose to be a little piece for the key hole under the door handle but I couldn't get a round circle that small cut without loosing it and a rear view mirror on the driver side door that just didn't look right..
          tonight I'll put a hanging wire on the back..

          thanks for the nice nice comments and for following my project. We will see in a couple weeks how it dose at the fair..

              It's now a wall hanger...
              It's not very often Mrs.Trout gives me compliments on my work because she really isn't a fan on some of the stuff I make. I got home from work today and she told me that the car was beautiful and that the pictures don't do it justice..WOW

                That is great and I now what you mean. My wife does not show a whole lot of interest in my scrolling, and usually the best I get is that's nice. But, whoa on to me if I don't do hand stands over her quilting..... None of her quilts fit my bed! I can't even get a patch put on some old jeans with any of her fancy sewing machines.....

                  Nice work!
                  Brings back fond memories of my teenage years. While I never owned one, it was one of my favorite cars.

                        When I was a kid, my uncles (big brothers, really) used my grandmother's 56 to teach me how to wash a car. Every Saturday afternoon, so it would be clean for church.

                        My uncles' names: Tom & Sawyer now that I think about it.

                          A really fine piece, as always, Trout. I bet the fitting those wheels was a trip.

                          Great job!

                            [What blade for this?]

                            I used a Pegas 2/0 skip tooth blade for this and all my 1/4" plywood puzzles. Any 2/0 blade will give similar results, as long as it is a simple blade which cuts only on the down-stroke. I stick with Pegas because I have found them to be consistent....

                            Are you thinking spray or brush? If it is a big grain you will need to use a grain filler, I have never used a filler so can't help much there. This may help a bit.

                            Rolf, I use White pine or Cedar but the most important aspect is the painting technique. I always put on a white primer, use fine steel wool to remove imperfections, Apply exterior outdoor paint, rub fine steel wool after each application when dry and final finish I apply clear poly ( spray can )...
