well i wanted something unique and a while back i found this really old pic of a racer drilled full of speedholes ..
i wanted to use that theme but in a more fancy way

so it will become like a barely street legal drag / racer .
paint is going to be bare metal , sound wierd paint > bare metal but hey we use styrene lol
using real alunimium zink spray , its paint with metal parts in it



back in the day pic i found

thnx and well not really its something that takes little time ..
what does make it tricky is to position the drill right ..
i tried messuring but got bored very quickly , the curves are not really ...
so i drew a small pen line straight and eye balled the distance between the holes ..
not accurate as you would have when messuring , but .... its kind of gives it soul , because i do want this to be not perfect and not exactly spot on
also going bare metal on the body ..
 
its not that i'm saying all the holes are off but they are also not perfect :)
 
btw i will not do a whole lot more then this i dont want it to look like the exampe ....thats to much



bondo-ed the airvent on the front of the cab and the holes for the window pillars
also placed the firewall , placed it way more upwards and i will change the center later on

534791_259218334211084_686315879_n.jpg

also bondo-ed the corners of the dash , there where gaps due to not following build instructions lol

very rough update , front is full of bondo , did some interiour work , just the forst set up of smooth sheets
drilled the rear edge , that is a bit sunken and i want to ad a edge on the doors so the side holes also become sunken / with depth
the rear holes i drilled with my powerdrill in the car on the pics i see they are all off ....
but irl its not that obvious and luckely the seats will hide most holes there

well finshed all the speedholes .

first of all not all are perfect position wise , if i could do it over i would first mark all holes with a marker en pre punch them with a steel needle ...
would take 3-4 times as much time but then it would be perfect
now i dont think its really a big issue , most are pretty good only screwed 2 up in the chassis by being to enthousiastic and wanting to do it too quick
but when you guys see the fonish of bare metal and the shading i think it will be fine

a previeuw of the idea of the bare metal , here is a deuce i did before and this was the second stage of the aluminium paint with some rubbing and sanding >



539462_201411923325059_1057912003_n.jpg



that one got some flyrust over the whole body on this one i want just the bare metal effect , hope i can do it the second time .
also will try to add more detail in the paint with tiny darker specs ..

started today with the bucket seats and drilled some holes in the sides

in the car



149420_259711184161799_614824879_n.jpg

then did the chassis and the grille

:) !! tbh i cant find anything else speedhole related other then this one and the one in my first post



mercssklb.jpg



grille and chassis

604138_259711204161797_551910486_n.jpg


very loose rough mock up just to see ... all the parts are not really in place


382365_259711224161795_333236553_n.jpg


531566_259711250828459_1230520471_n.jpg


i have this flat head v8 .. what do you guys think use this with some brass stacks on top or do a more modern , more powerfull v8 ?

538347_259711264161791_322352352_n.jpg

some pre-shading of the panellines because after the aluminium paint its hard to rub off excess paint it works on the paint
