Continuing to work on the next "mystery" component but the weather is suppose to warm up nicely this week so I may get some opportunity to do some actual body work.

Temps in the mid 40s today. Still a bit cold out, but got some body work done on one of the side boxes and some really good body work on the front section of the main body today.

I got the trim router out and tried cutting the decretive lines in the front main body section. Although it worked fine, it didn't take long to see that it was a mistake. With those grooves cut it would make the mold impossible to separate. So now I've come down to two options for the grooves. One is to make the mold and then place weather stripping on the completed mold to make the grooves in the final body piece. The second idea is to just paint the lines on the final body and not mold/cut them in.

I like the idea of making the mold and then placing weather stripping on the completed mold to make the grooves in the final body piece. The grooves would greatly enhance the depth and relief effects. Painted on lines to me would take a lot away from this bat vehicle. vertigo
