Love the I see a jagger and want to paint it black. Good choice. The car is looking really good now that all the excess metal putty is gone. It would seem that you have been successful in your attempts with this conversion. Can't wait to see the final paint job.
A pickup also struck me but I am thinking more of a Flower car than a truck.
Will make a nice pair if that it they way your going.

I was a bit surprised that it worked out so well this far. No it wil not be a flower car. Tomorrow I'll visit Zandvoort the F1 venue. I don't have tickets but I'll just want to see everything out there. It is about 1 hour on my bike to get there. No way you can visit Zandvoort by car this weekend

This is coming along nicely. Looks really good in Black as it should be.

The Cadillac will make a nice flower car for funerals.

Ed, if you look back you will see I suggested that same idea but Theo has something else in mine.

Time to reveal the marriage of the 2 Matchbox cars...... From the remaining parts, I made another hearse, and adapted to be an open hearse. I made the rear out of plastic and came up with the following. Because the inside of the Cadillac to my surprise was detailed with a coffin and a hand that came out of it ( scary monsters super creeps ) I couldn't resist to painting it in flesh and give a personal twist to it.

5 stars on both cars. Great work on such a small toy and your detailing is great. Make the bright work stand out nicely.

Today shipped the cars to the client. I put some instructions in the box which wrapped car to open first. Of course that is the Jag. The other one is a surprise for him, he doesn't know he is receiving that hearse too.
