SWEET!  That early tank causes so many problems for guys.  Is that your car Casey, if it is it is awful nice underneath. 

 

I still need to move the rear of the frame rails outboard, and move the tank over a bit more, after I get the body straightened out.

Time for some updates.

 

First off, the Hood wasn't fitting well, so i have been building up its edges with .010" styrene sheet.

Time for some updates, the T-bar is nearing copletion, and I received my Ross Gigson 340 to turn into a 360.

Got my parts from Al at Ma's Resin, have to say they are beautifully cast, well worth the money.

Now I need to find a set of decals, or a scan of a set so I can have new ones made.
