I haven't stopped in in a while, Joe.  Sorry.  You've absolutely outdone yourself on this build.  Put some appropriate backdrop up behind it and I'd be hardpressed to not think it was a 1:1.  The weld decals are very impressive, but your fab work is even more so...  Keep up the fantabulous work!

Thx. Guys, it's been a long road. Still a ways to go but getting there, This build has been very challenging for me.  Thought before i take the body off i would throw a door and the front clip on it, still needs to get body work done.

Thx. Guys. Chris, thinking of 2 different color combos right now. Main body color white with some red design or main color black with red design, right now biggest problem is trying to make the decals for the side trim and grill.

Joe...those color combos will be nice. I have one of the tom mcewen 57 chevy funny car that has the side trim decals. I can scan ot so you can use it as a start ans scale it up since it is a 1/25 scale. if you think that will help let me know and I will shoot it over to you.

Well i have been off work the last 10 days, I dislocated my index finger and finally going back to work tommarrow. Didn't get much done was to busy baby sitting the puppy lol, i did get the fuel rails and regulators done, the wire sticking out the front is the wiring for the injectors. The injectors are just some drilled out rod, i actually put little bolts in the tops of the regulators and the adjustment bolts. I think i'm crossed eyed now lol, Think i may take a slight break from this one for a little bit and finish up my protouring impala. 1 crappy picture for you.

I can't get over the job your doing on this build, Joe.  Your body mockup is very impressive and the injector/wiring job you're doing is remarkable!

Thx. For all the kind words guys . I'm going to start on the headers this weekend getting the in primer and getting the weld decals on, I want them to look stainless , the pair I found have a yellow goldish tint and don't look heat stained, hopefully I can pull it off , I might do a tiny bit of wash on the welds.
