Very nice. I have one of those in my stash. I hope it comes out half as good as yours.

Thanks Dave. I have over 200 pix of the build. One thing I did that was a good idea was to shave of the 'dams' on the lower rear of both the fenders, way smoother look to it after that mod:

I have had one of these things for many years, never have gotten real excited about building it, but you did a fantastic job on it!!! Great to actually see one done, and done so well.
