After reviewing all available footage, on set and exterior shots, we have decided to remove the lower trim and repaint the lower body slightly darker in contrast to the molding with a more gun metal appearance. The lighting in our shop, the reflectivity of the paint to reflect its surroundings can be deceiving. Thanks to all for recommendations regarding same. This is truly a community build.
All ‘glass’ is in place with the applied molding almost complete. We anticipated the glass to be challenging with the molding easily trimming it off. It was just the opposite. The trim was daunting and my crew, Todor and Milos, would not accept anything less than perfect.
Curtain sample (with tape) shown in place for sizing. Temp chairs in place until we locate period originals. Seat and bench cushions are being made. Original seat belts are in place. Nothing is squared up and fastened inside the Chariot at this time.
Chariot T-shirts in the works and will get them out soon.
Thanks to everyone for the great comments of support.
