Worked a little on the white hot rod. In keeping with the old Super Modified theme
mocked up a roof for it.

Image

An old Tyco truck donated it's top for the cause. It's a little big right now and has a bunch
of holes in it, but nothing that can't be fixed. It fits the lines of the car well and should
work out.

There are some things on the inside that need to be cleaned up before it's mounted
after that the window lines can be opened up and the roof trimmed to fit. May open
the top up to cut down on filling but we'll see what happens.

All for now

Roof for the white hot rod is now mounted. A piece of sheet plastic was attached to the rear to
cover up the large hole created when cutting the roof of the truck body. A new rear window will be
cut after molding it in as shape and size has yet to be determined.

The roof is now in the process of being shaped to the roof lines and molded to the shape of the body.
The side windows were opened up using the window lines molded into the roof and shaped back to
meet the body at the interior bucket.
Once the molding process is finished the top will be cut out to get rid of all the holes left from all the
Tyco do dads on top after they were removed.

Body is taking shape and coming around nicely. We'll let all this dry good and go back to the build off car
for awhile.

All for now
