    Jan 25, 2010, 6:32 PM - Re-vamping My mini bucket to mold again. #1

    So I made this mini bucket a few months back and since then I've been wanting to perfect it so I finally got around to doing so... Added some bondo then I sanded... Well you can imagine I did this quite a few times before I've gotten where I am now... Hope you like it as much as I do now.


    This is what it did look like.


    This is it in progress...





    Almost done...









    Still got a couple of coats of primer and some sanding to do but the end is near!



    The Dimensions still should be roughly this...

    26" outside diameter. "around brow"
    9 1/2" from chin to top of head
    7 3/4" from temple to temple "side of head to side of head"
    9 3/4" from side to side on bottom
    8" from front to back of brow.
    9" from front to back bottom "opening from where your head would enter bucket"

    So I took a measurement and it looks like I have brought out the cheeks a 9/16th's of an inch. "Pain in the but" but it's done so now I'm just primering and sanding out a few sand paper scratches I will should be molding this bad boy up "again" this weekend if the God's permit it.
