For the Cobra Jet motor, I needed some headers. The ones from the Ford 427 Ford Parts pack were the right distance on each two outer cylinders, but needed to be widened in the middle, so I did so with some styrene strip. Stills needs primer finishing.

Also more work done on the floor pan fabricated from sheet styrene. Possible seats, but I might fabricate bomber style seats as well.

First coats of primer. I actually shot the underside black yesterday, but no pictures yet. The upper floor pan (interior) will be metalizer. Once I get my dremel working, I have some corner seems inside that body that need to be addressed before I can paint it.

I got the chassis painted, and started piecing it together. The underside is black, and the topside was shot with Metalizer, but it was getting all over the black, so I shot sealer on it, and now it looks more like silver, but still looks ok, just not what I wanted.,

also some work on the Cobra Jet. I have started to mount some carb linkage, wired the distributor but have not yet installed it.

And here is the rear end I will be using. It is from the parts bin, not sure the original source but the plastic was molded in a metallic green.

Yes Kelly, I have an old photo etch set that has the rubber backing with several choices, but I do not recall the brand.  I have had them for 10+ years. There is also a PE linkage bracket that does not show up well in this pic, but will later when I post some more. I hope to get more work done on Tuesday.

The rear end you have is a Halibrand Quick Change 301..Very nice, I wish I could have someone cast these for me. Happy Modeling!

Any idea of the kit source tho?  Someone mentioned it may have been the Green Hornet hot rod, but I thought that kit was more simplistic..  I had actually considered making a copy of it before I worked it into this build, but my casting skills are not yet to that level. I have some more very similar tho.

Thanks!  Some folks are really good at remembering what parts came from what kits, I just can not. When I build a kit, I then pull the remainder of the parts and sort them into the appropriate parts box, (chassis, suspension, etc etc), so when I pull a part for use later, not always sure the source. In some cases, I get some from trades etc.   That Double Dragster reissue is actually on my list of kits to pick up as there are several other parts I know are in it that I want, just keep putting it off. Thanks Jahmal!

Thanks Man, I got the dip stick in and the motor all but ready to drop into place. Just waiting to get the chassis up on wheels.

 All I have left for the Chassis at this point are to get the right size O rings for the air bags. Already ran the lines for the air tanks, just need to run the rear brake lines and get the seats etc put in. I had a single seat I needed two of, so I started the casting process on that today, same with a rear wheel back that I cut. Easier to make a resin dupe that to cut another exactly the same. My goal was to have this one done by the 20th for the Tucson IPMS show, but not sure yet. Depends on how much time I get at the bench. The body is ready for the pain on the outside, just a few more touches on the inner panels.
