Bro, it's looking sweet! Let's see some paint soon  Just a tip Cesar... Get the headlight lenses fitted ( glued onto chrome surround ) before installing them otherwise they're very troublesome to get into place after the chrome surround is put in place 
This Magnum with your cool wheels & in black with a Hemi will be a cool looking hearse... I would love to be carried off in a black-beauty like it! Lol!
Cheers Cliffo 


Thanks Cliffo! Soon as possible I'll paint, promisse!!! Today I'll restart law school... my holyday it's over... cool tip brother, thanks... My most miserable things in my models are clear parts... Always I do wrong things...

Thanks Kane!! Yes, they are... Actually, I did machined aluminium lips and plastic wheels mods right for use in my Magnum. I don't damaged chrome plated and they fitted like as glove. I'm glad, I'm still learning use a lathe!!!

Thanks! You would like to know about Mustang 4-link? For bars I'd used 1.0mm and 2.0mm round rods, I did brackets from 0.5mm sheet... But I'll redo all of them... Today I got 3.0mm square tube. Gift from my super friend Cliffo!!! When Magnum will be finished I'll re-start my Stang. Thanks for interesting bro!

Thanx Cesar,
Now for another question.What size and type of styrene do you use for the brackets on the chassis?

gautreau... I don't know what size the original brackets were but Cesar is my good mate & whilst I've been working on a couple of Mopars, both with 4-Link set-ups, which I previewed to Cesar, he asked me what size I used for my brackets, as I figured out an easier, less fiddly, way to make them, using 3mm tubing. I have since sent him some because it's not avail' in his hometown of Brazil. I'm absolutely stoked that he liked my version & he has since told me he's going to re-do his 4-link set up on his Mustang, a similar way 
Here's a pic of mine...

I shaved/cut off 1 side of the square tubing then cut them at the angle I needed to fit the chassis 

Jeremy, sorry for my delay. Actually, agree with Cliffo and I'll re-do my Mustang rear end based on his job!!! He is the guy!!! He sent me a lot of tubes and I could make 100~120 rears ends!!! LOL!!! It's perfect to do it!

Actually they both Mopars Cliffo's are building has the mostly accurate 4-link in scale, made from scratch I was ever seen. They inspire me... I just sent to him couple pics and he did a gorgeous job IMO.

Cliffo THANKS for your help brother!!! Your rides are going to blowing minds for sure!!!

Cheers!

Cesar, I wish I had thought of those rims before you, they're just right for this car! And the speakers/amps in the back look great. I'm waiting for you to get the 4-link done, I want to see how you guys pull that off!

Cliffo,

That four link looks awesome. What size hardware did you use for the bolts and screws?

Rick I think Cliffo used 0.7mm...

Undersized rear wing was widened 2mm (1mm each side) and painted with uretane black. I'll cover with CF decal.
