    That looks great! Seems you dealt with the change in body lines really well.

    Thanks everyone. Hi Greg, yeah its starting to all fall into place. I'm pushing to get this done now. Lots of progress today. I did the lettering, much the same way as I did the hood. Based them in with a cream color, back and forth with the sepia and white for details, shading and highlighting with glazes of moss green and old gold. Then I did a bit of shading under the letters, which is only visible when I wipe it with mineral spirits, which means that it will be visible when cleared. Cool effect. Then I did the rest of the hood the same as before. Now its all done except for some tweaking with highlights and darks to make it pop.

    My hubby and I lifted it back up onto the workbench for the evening so no accidents happen so these were the best pictures I could get for now.

    I've been careful to keep track of my hours on this one. So far 48.3 hours.

    If it looks this good without clear and a few tweeks, It is going to look even more amazing when done. Love it

    @twood @Mr.Micron Thanks Glen and Herb. Yeah a few tweaks and then let it sit and dry real good, then off to clear coat. Then it will be impossible to get good pictures. I've had a peak at what its gonna look like with clear. I think the client will like it. :)

    Thanks. :)

    Here is a picture of the final work. I really didn't do too much afterwards, a bit of highlighting and fine detail work and done.

    The client picks it up today. Then off to clear coat.
