You'll notice the rockers are on and painted already.  This is so that the "fly-away" bottoms of the quarters can be anchored, which allows them to be blocked out nice and straight.  An unusual facet of the Hudson Step-Down.

In the last week or so, I've concentrated on getting the car buffed out and some of the bright work installed.  Here's a couple of pics:
