11-28-2015 Update

The speaker grill test worked. they are both printed, assembled and waiting for a warmer day for me to paint copper.

I am in the last legs of sanding, every part is ready for what i hope to be the final primer coat before i spray color.

Here are some update pics of the copper color on many of the internal components. Click to see bigger pictures.

I have been sanding endlessly, while doing that I had an idea for a way to construct my speaker grills that I am testing now. Basically I printed a frame for the speaker grill and then my idea is to soak the bottom of the grill in acetone to start to dissolve the ABS. I will then press the grill material into the abs while the ABS is soft. After it hardens I will trim the metal mesh around the frame, sand any sharp edges and ready it for paint.
Below are pictures of my small scale test that I am doing right now. (Fingers crossed)

Sorry I have taken so long to update. I have shifted to adding detail to make this more like a scale model. I have been prepping lots of parts for paint, testing colors etc.
Here are a couple pictures.

I will get some of the parts with primer applied as well as body filler. Paint prep is a lot more work than I wanted it to be.
