I'll first introduce myself as it's my firt post on this forum.
Im 32 and from Montreal, Canada.
I started modeling 12 years ago. I did a few that I put in the garbage ! Nothing worth pics as it was very basic without any mods.
Following all your project since 6 months, last friday I found myself buying a new kit.
I'm a little afraid since I have no experience for the results that I expect. Hope you will give me some tips along this build.
So first pics, the box itself !
Then, I made a fast mock-up to see the stance i wanted. Didn't adjust play with the suspension height yet, I justed want to see where I'll go.
I decide to play with the radiator cover by giving it a angle. Haven't decide yet which engine I will choose, I don't no yet if the clearance is good. I think I will have to extand the frame about 1/8" to 3/16".
The angle you see in the picture is less that what I want, I will correct this later.
Now the trickiest part (for me) !!! The choptop. I plan cutting about 3/16" of the top height as you can see.
I started cuting, now in two separate part. Tonight I will weld them together, I must say, i'm really nervous about this step, It will be the first time, hope it will be easy.
