The blue looks pretty sweet on it, are you gonna do white stripes on it? Also, are those the gt500 wheels and tires you're gonna use?

I just got done putting the stripes on it, and they went on pretty good for being old AMT decals, yep those are GT500 wheels in pegasus tires . They are a tad bit to big, so I am lookig for something better fitting.

Sweet! Nothing like a set of LaMans strips to make a car pop!

I normally dont like stripes, but this is one of those rare times that I do, I agree it does make it pop. Here are a few more pics, its not a very clean build so far, but thats ok as this was a bad casting so I just kind had fun with it. I have decided that the front needed to be lowered a little bit, so I am working on that. I also cut out the grill on the donar kit body and put on this one, what to make a look a little bit different from eleanor

I've never seen a kit like that before. Wow, that's cool. I'd like to see what other engines that have to offer. Where did you get that from?

I got it off of evil bay, got a four pack, I also got chevy 283, caddy 354, pontiac 421. There are not being made anymore I believe, I have no use for the other three, but it was cheaper to get the four pack then just getting the ford on the bay. Paid $9.99 free shipping, I believe the seller has some more.

I posted all four of them in the what did you get today thread

I thought about using a ross gibson engine, but I couldn't see spending what I could buy a kit for, now if I was doing eleanor as a contest build then maybe. I am trying to strip the chrome right now. Still need the paint for it.

That baldwin drag is a nice engine

The mm bright platinum looks better on yours than my test spray turned out, thought it was completely different, but I think it looks good. Are you still gonna do the black stripes? Can't wait to see it shiny.

I'm sure exactly how wide the stripes are, maybe compare to the gt350 kit decals and use different thicknesses of masking tape until you have them layer out, that's all I was going to do anyway.

I've always basecoated, tape off and paint the stripes, remove all the tape, bury it all in clear coat, then cut and buff if need be, this has always done me well. Works well with stripes and 2 tone schemes.
