I like theed engine with the green to be honest but I think Imma repaint it though. Plus got tired of not having a engine stand so made one myself. Out of bent chrome styrene rod. bent it using a lighter and styrene cut pieces. used car signs...b.y the Way, its made of styrene as well.

did a little more engine. Plus um redoing the undercarriage a lil. I used wrapping wire from Radio Shack for the engine thus far. my only problem is the diameter of the wrapping wire is so small. but the good thing about it is it is very flexible and get in the crevices very well.

OK my brothers in styrene, gotten some much needed work done on the rebuild. Of course here is just another look at the engine that is wired but not complete yet though. The body and hood with about 5 to 6 base coats. Also a few pics of the door panels, dashboard, and the seats. Also the floor board as well freshly painted with flat black. But may get a coat of varnish clear paint, not sure yet. The gas tank and firewall with some detail work as well.
