Here are the pontoons with the surface sheeting and lights. I test-fitted the tail lights at an angle (canted), like on the real car, but they looked awkward, given the squared off shape of the end of the pontoon. With the way I build a car, I often am redesigning the car to fit my design and construction methods, according to what looks best on the model.
My sister had a '68 slant 8 Valiant (something in that line-up), it looked like a '68, 4 door Sport Fury. She decided that it was running hot, and proceeded to add a gallon of coolant. She drove to my house saying it was making weird noises and running really really hot. She poured the Radiator fluid into the engine oil cap. I drained this concoction, replaced the thermostat, put in fresh oil, and filled the radiator. I could not believe that engine started instantly and did not knock or show any signs of distress. She drove it for a few more years, then sold it, and got something newer (relatively speaking). Those slant 6 engines were incredible, and so easy to service.
I have to redraw the side features on my surface sheets, because I failed to notice that the windshield and backlight (rear window) are of the wrap-around type. This changes side window features and door line placement. So I'm making corrections on my tracing sheet, then I'll photocopy new surface sheets onto colored paper.
Surface sheets are on the components, and the main body is assembled. The phony spare tire cover bulge (one of my favorite features of the '60 and '61 Valiants) was made by layering discs of colored paper together and gluing in place.
Axle holes were made with a 1/4 inch paper punch, visible in last photo. I can cover the roughness around the rear bumper slot with the bumper. No matter how carefully I try to build a model, my cars always come out looking a little rough. I'll admit I'm not all that great of a builder, but I love building my models, anyway.
