I'll start out my career here at Skid's with my new project.
Using leftovers from a double T kit and 6 cylinder from the salvage yard.


Suspension and engine set. Detailing the intake and setting it up for a pair of velocity stacks.

Awesome chassis. The frame has just the right amount of kick at the back.

Sometimes ignorance is so noticable, it can't be overridden by the 'imagineering' cop-out.
I had glued the front of the engine on upside down (pretty darn well,if I may say so). So, it had to be removed and redone ! Not a lot of damage ! ::)
Also, this morning, I wired the magneto/plugs, installed front brake lines, and fit the radiator and shell. Was glad to see I still had room for a fan ! :) Yay! I didn't have any more elec fans! ::)

I hate when I do stuff like that. Looks good from here. No damage at all.

Gad Clay, I thought I was the only one that did things like that. Something like gluing a part in upside down or on the left instead of the right is something I seem to do on every other build. :oops:

This is looking good. Keep it up.

I'm in the middle of scratchbuilding a cowl. Willl post fotos later.
Meantime I discovered an old vintage seat pan and a barrel. Perfect !!!
I lowered the bottom of the seat(pan) and have it mached to the floor pan's kickup
I'm building a 'bed' using a piece of scribed basswood for the floor and modifying some plastic wood planks from some old pickup.
Mocked here.
