I always wondered how the amt 1/16th kits were. This one was sent by the same client I did the 73 1/16th charger for... This kit was pure hassle from the time I opened the box! Lots of mods to make it look "decent" especially the stance. Built boxstock with PPG Petty blue, sem stoplight red, and dupont clear with slixx decals........ glad it is done!!

I was just asking you about this one Dave! Looks great! Funny you mentioned the suspension because I was nervous about that. I was thinking of building mine with the wheels off and detailing the brakes and such, just to avoid the ride height!

Yours, as always, looks top notch!!!

HAHAHA! Yeah I was thinking of brushing off my Rat Rod the other day. A nice shade of primer should get them looking here... ;)

I'm really tempted to get the Ford too......But I bought a set of Wrangler Decals off that site I told you about. $44.... But they are in scale and I REALLY didn't feel like building a STP car. No offense...lol

That looks great, Dave, as usual. About 2 years ago I was given a Ford that's complete, but I have no usuable decals to put on it....been wanting to build it since. Way back on BAD when I was looking for photos of the #64 Sunny King Ford car, I had a guy that was supposedly willing to make me some decals, but never heard from him again.
