You do very interesting things with your build.
Always very interesting reading your posts.
You must also be a very sly person to be able to stay out of harms way when it comes to the wife's cooking ware

I recast the wax. It was just too thick for what I'm doing. I ended up putting just over 1 pound of wax in each batch and ended up with four 3/16" plates.

I made the parking lamp housings and bezels first. The bezels needed to be built up fromtwo layers of wax, then formed into a triangular cross section with a hobby knife. The housing will go in from the inside of the fender and the bezel will go on from the outside. The three tabs at the top of the bezel will slide under the wrap around moldings. These are roughed in pretty close to the right size. I need to start fitting them to the car next and then smooth them out a little more.

I love the twists and turns Jack of this journey you are taking us on!

5 star rating is not enough for the knowledge and detail you are sharing.

I did lost wax casting ( mostly jewelry) back in college and if wanted to replicate a piece over and over we would make a rubber type mold using our original wax plug and then every time we wanted to make that piece again we would pour wax into the rubber mold and then use that casting to use in the investment casting. I hope my ramblings made sense.
