Thanks for the kind comments. I had originally planned to make this a quick, shelf-build with bodywork mods, some interior work and no motor....was saving the blocks for other builds. I've decided to go ahead and drop one in this build, I'm not sure what kind yet. I'm kinda leaning towards blown. I hope to enter my first show in May. I was going with another project that is not started yet, but I think I'm going with this one now. This is no replica...by no means, but I'm enjoying how this is turning out.
Been doing chassis work this week.....replaced whole front end with '90s nascar thunderbird unit (glue bomb i picked up for free), brass/styrene pinned frt suspension components, added the batteries, parachute lever/cables. I should be able to finish front suspension and start some brake systems soon, then motor work and other detailing. I included a start and current shot. Thanks for looking!
