Beautiful job, Chris; well worth all the time and effort indeed. The details you have added really brought it to "life".

I'm not real familiar with the Cox body, and curious if the door hinges were a kit molded feature, or were they something you added? Very subtle, and look as if you could open the door!

Keep up the good work.

How I did the hinges... I tried all kinds of things to pull this off and in the end I did like this...

The rivets I use have a tail and once you have them in the holes and glued you cut the tail off. I got all the rivet tails and cut them down to size and glued them into the door grove with small spacing between each one. This gave a great effect of hinges. Simple and looks amazing. The problem was getting to that simple method. Who what have thought ;).

Thanks, lads - nice one! - Merry bloody Christmas. :ok:
