Great car.

Nice to be done. Really nice craftsmanship. Looks like fun car to ride and drive. Many years ago a friend of mine was asked: When will it be finished! His answer was: When I sell it I guess. Fred25T

Great work!

All great ideas for how to do the bead. Another way similar to what you did would be to use a small "Hot Dog Die" underneath and 2 doggies on top. Fred26t
