I got the floorpan section with the spare tire well plastic welded in place, and shot the rear half of the chassis with some primer, just to see how things looked. I'm pleased with how the ribs on the well look less pronounced and more like the real stamped ribs, but there are some areas which need (and by now already received) a bit of filler before the next coat of primer:

In this close-up shot of the cowl vent you can see the gaps are going to need some attention, as a few are not flush with the others, and almost all need reshaping at the forward end:

Casey this is amazing work on the dart. It is super cool how much effort you put into making it look accurate.

Everyone in this cpb is blowing me away with your attention to details. Super clean build and lots of hard work

I have a good idea for a duster but it HAS to have a bench seat

not giving any clues on the build but I will tell you the name...the A-bomb (which by the way is a whole lot more powerfull than the F-bomb)

(and that name is taken guys, no stealing it

I've been screwing around with a '41 Plymouth the last couple of days and I think I might be onto something...

I'm compelled to comment on this again... I think that's the most photogenic engine (front end?) I think I've ever seen. Engineered to perfection David.

Finished the bodywork on the Hudson-powered '41 Chevy "bobber", and got the first few coats of bronze on the cab and bed. I was goint to paint them the same yellow as the scoop, but decided to match them to the frame. I might go another route with the scoop now, too. I guess we'll see.

I'll join in with this, I just bought (exchanged a chincy RC helicopter from Christmas) 51DhpNxsTSL._SX425_.jpg

All I've done is spray the floor pan grey-blue and paint prep the body. Probably going to be stock, buyt I'd like to get some nice wheels for it. (I've also got two MKII Supras, but they're both curbside)

Inspired by Chuck's work and an appreciation for straight 6 engines...

Hudson 308 High Performance...I scratch built a high compression, dual plug head and 12 point distributor:

I have three weber style carbs going on the other side of the block along with custom headers. Then I have to figure out what to put it in.
