I am not sure where to put this, its going to be a race car hauler.

I have been busy and don't have any pictures of the beginning of the build.

I took these last night.

I put bass wood inside to look like luan paneling.

The pictures aren't the greatest. I'll get more soon.

Thanks Gary, I have the detail painting and running lights to put on and I bought one of these kits to put some "stuff" in there with the race car.

Thanks guys.
I'm still waiting on my tool kit from South Korea...

I started working on the receiver and added some detail to the trailer hitch. I used some parts from the parts box, a Mini hood latch and the camera from a stock car kit. I cut the box off the camera because it looks like the box that is used to hold the battery for the emergency disconnect braking system on trailers. I have some chain on order to make the safety chains.

The receiver is removable from the truck. I had to open up the end of the mounting point on the truck as it was cast solid. I used scraps to make the receiver assembly and pinned it with some wire for strength and the ball came with the trailer kit. I made the nut from scrap.
