Excellent paint effects! The mis-matched colours will definitely add to the overall look.

Ya gotta love this. The directions have to mount this white piece to the frame and the other end just floats between the frame and front spindle. I cut the extension piece off and replaced it with a wire. It looks more in scale now



I re-worked the front end and now I think the front suspension looks better



Till next time...

The grill shell is in place. I like the look of the ones where the shell is tilted back toward the engine but because of the height of the motor it didn't look right. Oh well, there'll be others...



With the grill shell in place I was able to install heater hoes. I used solder for these. Works great



I need to make some tail lights now. I've seen some cars where they used mason jars for tail lights. I like that look, So i dug out some 3MM LEDs I had laying around. Dipped them in some clear red paint let them dry and mounted in some engine parts from the kit.



Thanks for looking, till next time...

Time to get some fuel in the bad boy. Here's what I did. I found this fuel can set in my stash. This is perfect for my needs



I assembled one of the 50 Gal drums (1/35 scale) and painted it the body color. I placed it in the back of the car and tied it down with chain. The chain is a necklace I picked up at Hobby Lobby for cheap.



I used more solder to represent feed lines. I also slapped on a Gulf decal just because.



A view of the interior, I liked the look of the original steering wheel or this build



Thanks for taking the time to look at this project. I will be posting finished pictures in the gallery.

Till Next time....
