This is more work than I thought it would be!

Made the front end work using brass and aluminum with screws. Added some frame work to the open top. Added the kit trans to junk box engine. Took 3 Polar light kit funny car tanks and merged them together to make one long one to use in the bed.

Absolutely. Perhaps some dont get my sarcasm (sp?), but as you said, its all in good fun. I sent you an email about the gas tank.

Irv,

Please take lots of nice crisp in-progress shots for us! I'd love to feature this in Classic Plastic! Looks like another fantastic build coming from the House of Arter. :shock:
