Decided to add a little detail to it. First up I roughed in the headers for it, and built a frame.
Posted Image
Have to add the front suspension yet.
Posted Image
How about a starter, and oil pan, and water pump pulleys.
Posted Image
Oil Filter, and transmission.
Posted Image
Firewall, and up on wheels.

Finally got the guts to tackle the front suspension on this build. I took a 1/4" piece of tubing, cut it 1/16th" thick, then cut that in half to make the springs. The drop axle is a piece of florists wire. The small wire betweent th frame is for the engine mount.

Next I put on the tires to check the stance.
Posted Image

Then dropped on the body to check clearances.
Posted Image

I may have to tweak the front just a tad lower.

Okay guys here's the latest. If you have a engine you need a rear end, and drive shaft right.
