Just to let you know, my pep file isn't 100% accurate, though it is much more accurate than my first one. I only had one good side reference of the replica to work with.
Good luck with it. I hope my file is helpful instead of a hindrance.
It doesn't look like a big change but I trimmed the trigger, removed the safety, formed the action, flushed the bolts and rivets, finished up the side panels and welded them on View attachment 83846
I started bondoing the body and applying the pre fibered epoxy to the stock.
I thought the pre fibered epoxy was going to be like bondo. It's not it's more like snot. I think I'm going to get some fiberglass netting to use with this slime.
Well, I finally had some time to work in the shop today. Man this build feels like it's taking forever. With this cold weather the body filler takes its time setting up. Most of that is over now. I got the stock roughed in and put a coat of bondo on to fill in some holes. I also managed to sand down the bondo on the body. I'll be glad when I'm done with this step.

While I was waiting for the bondo to dry I started a ray gun.
