a bit of sculpting will be needed around the arches before paint.

oh man me too. sanding, painting is all I seem to do, but she's coming together . that belt line transition to the flare is the hardest sculpting I have ever done.

Yes, I do recall blending into the flares on the Bronze. And I do remember it took many attempts blocking it in on both sides of all four flares....
Be happy that you flared just one end (or did you do the front as well?)

My dream is to recreate the BRE fenders in steel one day.

Since you've gotten better at reading the Flow why not call her,,,"Flow" For future reference, if you put down a tape line on the accent lines then put down primer, you chances of a killer hard straight line are increased 2 fold. Other that all that Flow looks good,, DOH!

thanks man! I could have definitely got the lines straighter with another week of sanding or with tricks like the tape line.... but she is a old girl that likes it ruff and will take a pounding.

That (all of it, all of your work, the color combo, everything) looks great Robyn.
