Finished this one a few days ago and I was hoping to have taken some newer, better pics to post here.

Didn't happen. :cry:

Anyway, I figured I'd jump right back in anyway and share it with the artist who inspired the project in the first place.

So, Jairus.......I hope you approve! 8)

I still need to locate a couple of "302" badges in decal or PE form for the cowl hood and do some minor touching up. By the way, the stripes were all airbrushed - I destroyed a couple sets of decals so I went with painting them on instead!

**EDIT** Added new pic links to eliminate dead pics

Too bad you're so far away...the theme for our club contest this September is Long Roof Cars, and I think it would turn a lot of heads!

Great execution on the overall project.

Awesome work Dave, I was wondering where you disappeared too. Do you think you will make it to the Southern NNL with this beauty in November?

Thanks alot for all the kind words, guys.
And I appreciate the constant inspiration, Jairus! Just how many ideas do you have thump-thump-thumping away in that skull of yours anyway?? :wink:

I've been around, Mike. Haven't posted a whole lot of anything, anywhere lately. Gives me more time at the bench. As for this year's Southern Nats, there's always hope. I probably won't know for sure until the last minute....er...second! If I'm there, I'll make sure to look you up!

Hey Dave, a day late, but I have the PE that you are looking for. You just want the fender badges or what? Just PM me with what you would like and I will try to accomodate you.

Hey Dave,
Life has gotten way in the way this week. I didn't realize that I was on call this week and have worked double shifts every day so far. I do have the parts, I just have to remember to get them to the post office. I will make a concentrated effort to get them in the mail tomorrow. I will even send them priority. Sorry that this has happened.
Ken
