I like this Shay, it's a great representation of a gasser weekend warrior on a shoe string budget. Love the weathered look and stance.

Thanks Curt,
I was going to put skinnier slicks on and cut out the bonnet to make it look more normal, but I found an older 80s version which has the 3 n 1 option with the Gasser bits. The last Round 2 repop has no nice bits in it, and the shell is very thin.

Did you ever try doing the hood like we talked about?

I'd need to take the scoop off to measure it, the blower goes though the bonnet too, so the hole would be pretty big.

I'll give it a go.

Could do with a narrower rear end. A lot of those older gals could use help there. Other than that, an interesting "save" from the parts piles!
