Now I can get on with my 117 Caravan. I have painted it in Yellow Cream that matches the car I am pairing it with.
Here are a couple pictures and the greengrit blasting is not so bad.

Shall I continue?
I installed the front dolly wheel and put the axle, hubs and tires together on the base plate. I made sure the window unit dropped into the body okay and fit the interior and the base plate. I had already drilled holes for the rivets and they were ready to go.
I still have to paint the headlights and marker lights though.

<p>Same color paint, I did not change it. The lighting is different than yesterday. I have more lights on in my office today. Here it is paired up with the Dinky 191 Dodge Royal Sedan I did way back in August of 2012. They color is off some from the Car to the caravan. Different batch of paint I think.

<br />Also a shot of the interior. I put a white floor in it this time.<br /><br /></p>

Sorry, I should have looked closer at the pictures. I will edit the brightness and contrast and be right back.
