try a free pic hosting site like photobucket or fotki Zach, I prefer photobucket myself as fotki only allows free users tiny pics.

The wiring will look more prototypically correct if you route the driver side wires under the upper blower pulley The wires should not be in front of the scoop.

Getting some time on my hands decided to work on my model.  The time away from it was a positive thing i think though.  I changed the body color to a pink raspberry with a single racing stripe.  Plumbed the oil lines on the engine and made a fuel injection system.  First time trying to do both.  Should be done with this car in about a week.  Please stay tuned in on it!!

This chassis looks exactly like the one I used on my Jungle Jim car, is it the same one because if it is I'm just gonna finish my body for the Mongoose car and swap bodies every so often til I finish the chassis

Yea I know that. I have the Jungle Jim built and I'm about to start the Navy Mongoose car that's why I asked.

Hows it going guys. Just a small update on my car. I applied a few decals to the body that i had lying around. The Plymouth Logo came from the Revell Superbird kit and works well i think.  I also but the parachute on and wired it with medical tape and scrap wire. The chassis is about 85% done.  Hope you all like it!!

Zach I dont see a problem with the combo. I love the imagination and I love to see all the outstanding work that comes from this board. Keep up the good work and the updates coming.
