The car isn’t really 100% finished. But none of what I do ever really is. Still, it’s good enough for now.

Sitting on my Wah pedal, whilst I print ‘decals’.

Today I printed ‘decals’, for the numbers and a couple of generic dash instruments.

Cutting out the decals.

After quickly knocking out the decals in Adobe CS5 Illustrator, I cut ‘em out, and Pritt-sticked them into place. simple but satisfying!

Trying to zoom in on the dashboard dials.

This has never been about perfectionism or accuracy. It’s a generic ‘made up’ vehicle. And it was all never more than a bit of kiddie style crafting fun. Keeping the gremlins of anxiety or boredom, whilst convalescing, at bay.

Thar she blows!

And in that respect, even if no others, it’s been a success!
