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.

So the barrel will be the fuel tank?

I'll catch up on what I have been doing for a cowl.
First, I made the two ends, kinda going off the one in the background that I didn't want to rob from the kit it was in.



Next, I started filling between them with styrene pieces.



Bondo is my friend. ;)



Here, I have cut out the interior side and am fitting a dash.



Mockup. Attached to the floor pan.





I definitely have to get that bed mounted lower ! ::)

I like the idea of getting rid of as much weight as possible. So you have an engine, 4 wheels, seat, fuel tank and cowl. I can't really think of anything else you really need.

Only a steering wheel and a gas pedal. You don't need brakes....they only slow you down...LOL

Today, I wanted to see if I could do anything interesting with these lamps.



Yeah, this'll work :drunken:



I also made up some windshield mounts from styrene angle.

That's some pretty good scratch building you're doing Clay. I really like how it's shaping up!
