All foiled except for the hood, which I'm waiting on. I'm going to see if I can make the louvers look a little better. Looking at reference pics there is supposed to be some body color showing between them but in scale its hard to trim between them. The back edge of them should have some flat black too, that might be enough to create the illusion of space between them. I'll start working on fitting the headers and wrapping up the rest of the kit now.

After looking at the decals in different light they aren't as purple as I though they were so I might try to put them on tomorrow.

BMF is finished, I'll try to get some pics up tomorrow. I PMed Billy a few days ago and should have the hood and mirrors next week. I have a couple questions for the group. First, the kit comes with a set of traction bars, should I use them or not? Second, I was looking at the decals and the white to blue strobe looks more like white to purple. I dont think they look very good holding them up to the body, certainly not up to the standards of all the work that has been done, should I still use them? Does anyone know if the decals in the reissued kit are better? I have the same Pro Modeler kit and the decals in my kit also look purple but I dont have the reissue to compair. Last, there is an option of headers or stock manifolds. If I go with the headers I have to cut the already instaled exhaust pipes, to me the headers seem like the way to go on this build though. What do you guys think?

Everybody keeps posting old songs, how about 2 from a couple of the best albums (CDs) released in the last few months ??

 

We will fight you from the mountains

And we will fight you in the streets

And we will fight you from the valleys

You can not take what isn't yours

 

or this one

 

Put me on a pedestal and I'll only disappoint you

Tell me I'm exception and I'll only exploit you

Give me all your money and I'll make some origami, honey

I think your a joke but I don't find you very funny
