Giant Ant (Step 15) - my shiny new toy!

First thing to do is fill in all the gaps and holes with some expansion foam (a.k.a. ant guts). This is to keep out the moisture and anyone looking to build a nest inside the ant body.
(My dad helping to fill more guts.)
The next step is to clean up all the metal in preparation of the painting to come.
And so now the ant has found a temporary new home...

...where the final steps will be completed.

(I have to say that I really like this all-polished-silver look. If I hadn't already committed to making the ant red, I think I would have just finished it off at this point with a clear coat, and called it a day...but no.)
