Thanks RoySmile

I'm working diligently and slow, to make sure all assembly sequences are smooth along with the minor modifications from this point. BigGrin

I won't be covering the spare tire as '67 Shelby's did not come from Shelby American with the tire covered.

Again Thanks to Peter (AKA pbhawkin) for sending me the trunk material from down under Australia to me in the US and he sent it to me FREE OF CHARGESmile

I am glad it arrived safely and that you found it useful. I think it helps finish off that area!
I really like how your model is coming on.
I gave mine to my son for his 18 Birthday and he loved it.
Although I have yet to make a display case for it.

Thanks Peter,

I do again appreciate the trunk material. I am taking a little time away waiting on a replacement front windshield and back window. The front was way out of alignment and the rear window was scratched evidently during shipment.

Come back often as I'm about to get it completed.

Sincerely,
Richie
