  I've been so engulfed in life itself I haven't had much time to build, unfortunately I just haven't had the drive to build like I used to. I hope to make some time get back to some of these builds and make some progress.

 

 I'm going to see about cutting the front subframe out and building a tube chassis style one. if that wont work ill have to rethink my plan.

At least you have 3 kits. If the tube subframe, doesn't work out, you can pull out another chassis & be back at square one.

In Topic: Why do your kits end up stalled

Usually, it's a project that snowballs out of proportion. It starts out as a simple, out of the box, build. Then, the kit wheels & tires aren't right. How about an engine swap? Measure 3 times, cut twice, & the engine is still crocked. Before you know it, you have a bench full of cut up plastic, I'm in over my head, or I figure it'll take 2 years to finish. Then, it's back in the box, stand in front of the wall o' kits, to decide which one is next.

 

The last "victim", actually was out of the box but I just wasn't excited about the subject. I will finish it, later. I boxed it up, grabbed another kit, & started to get into the snowball mode but caught myself. I'm now back to, out of the box with a simple wheel & tire swap. Those ones usually get finished.

Between 25 & 50%. More toward the 25.
