hi all this build was based on the dan fink's speed wagon , since i already build that kit ounce and got this one with a buy of several kits at ounce i decided to really go all out ..
i did not start with a real set plan .

the kit :

after the clear coat on the wood was dry

and the end pictures from today , i have not done any wiring yet , that will have to waight i dont have the correct wires ..

some self made / added stuff :

altered the stock headers and gave them bend pipes
added carbs on the block and made a scoop out of an old truck light
steering arm from the cabine
the radiator brace
completely build the wooden body from scratch (first time)

543918_237569539709297_1933912326_n.jpg



and now the exhaust is there as reference you can see that the body really shines and does reflect (something that doesnt show on most pics)

Beautiful build, Richard. Really like your details, woodwork & finish.

 

I would not want to take that surfboard in the water, though.
