Hi Lloyd
   I watch you paint and can't believe how much paint you are putting on.  I remember you saying you hold the piece for 5 minutes looking at it for runs and then chase the runs with more paint, but when I tried that I just made a mess.
I enjoyed seeing how you did  the painting.  
   Question:  you seem to add more paint almost right away, is that to make the paint smooth out?
Thanks so much for sharing.

Day 5 of the build– Got the seats made today  and cut some of small bits out too Tomorrow maybe do some more painting and make the back leaf spring

Hi Ken – No I put more paint on to get it building up. The paint will smooth our it self but that last coat of paint I put on you not to stop turning it for a good 5 minutes or it will be a mess.

Lloyd - Very interesting video on how you spray painted. Looks like you have the spray nozzle very close to the part you are painting, and I understand now why you do a lot of rotating the part to even out the paint. I'll have to give that try myself when the weather here gets a little warmer.
When I spray paint that close I get a lot of puddles and running, I guess the trick is to constantly rotate the piece.
   Now I am very curious on how you made the front windshield frame.
Things like what wood and size did you use, did you by the wood or make the narrow strips?
   Another question is what glue did you use in the joints.

Car is looking good.
   Another question, Sorry.
I see the springs and the spring hanger attached to the frame.  Did you cut them out separately or is it all one piece?
   Sorry to ask so many questions, but I am finding this project very interesting.
I shared some of your photos with a scroll saw master craftsman, and he was amazed with your work.
Again thanks for sharing so much detail.

Hi Udie and Ken - Today I will do video on how I made the windshield frame and leaf spring and post to night

Many forum members can not get the wheel tire perfectly centre on the drill
So this is how to get wheel tire perfectly centre cut  4 15 mm tires with the Scroll Saw then cut one more from 8 mm ply this is going to be your faceplate then line up the faceplate with the tire and screw fix them together and do this with all 4 of them. Then make the faceplate smaller then screw fix back them together.
I put some photos below to show you

Not got much painting done today it was raining all day but done a video on the making of the back  leaf spring and tomorrow going out for the day so it will Monday before I post again.

Udie - The front windshield frame I made from 1/8 ply and the narrow strips from lollipop sticks and super glue them together wood glue no good for thin strips I try to show you on the video.

Ken – No problem ask question is ok and I will try to help you. And did video on how I made them

Lloyd - Thanks for the great video on the leaf springs and windshield. What a great guy you are for taking the time to respond to special requests like mine and Ken's.
   I wish I saw how you made the windshield before I was making the fenders for the Military Miniatures Jeep. I have cut slots in the back side of many of my other woodworking projects to create an angle/bend from solid wood for trim ... and it never occurred to me that I should do the same thing to thinner stock when building my toy projects. This is terrific, I've learned another thing from watching your build.
   When I was making the jeeps the fenders were the most difficult part for me to make, I kept breaking them at one of the joints a number of times. I will have to zip down to the shop and give your method a try. Makes perfect sense to me, that's exactly the way to do it.
   Using the super glue or CA glue is also a perfect solution for these types of components.
Thanks again my friend.

Thanks a bunch.
I learned new stuff again.
I saw how you cut the third spring using angle cuts.  Good idea.
I am amazed the way you mark your wood with the pencil free hand.  You must have very steady hands.
The car is looking great.
You are the best craftsman I have seen in a long time. 
Thanks Again.

Lloyd,
Your build is really starting to look great! Whow!!
Your speed in  making all the parts is unbelieveable.
I would like to know how you glue all the painted parts together? Do you stick masking tape to the areas to be glued before you start to paint?
Thanks for all the videos. It is definitely of great help to me.
Regards
Dolf

   Thanks Udie, Ken , Dolf, George

Got an hour or so this morning on the car before we went out and finished the Chassis so I can paint it tomorrow

Dolf – I not use masking tape to much sometimes I drill a small hole and put toothpick in the hole or cut the paint with a sharp knife back to the wood
