That is going to look sick when done Dave, Has a great stance. Only thing i don't dig about it is the length of the rear fenders off the back, is there going to be a filler piece in there ?

thanks guys.

 

i gotta agree with you joe. i'm just not sure what i'm going to do with it yet.  i'm thinking about a full length belly pan and i guess it will depend on where it looks good at. maybe i'll do some kind of rolled back pan or something?

Nice work, Dave.

Always look forward to your updates.

As a newb in the hobby, you're one of my heros!

 

What grit paper are you using for your body prep, at this point?

Nice work on the axle Dave, For the rear fenders, What if you section them so the radius is closer to the body making them shorter?
