That's awesome! Do you use just super glue to hold those in the distributor I assume then?

And I found another pic for me to go off of :lol:

Pretty decent view, got the roll cage, mesh drivers side window, nice spoiler view, and shows the exhaust which I'll see about mimicking. The exhaust is gonna be kinda hard to do if I want to do it because the kit body doesn't overhang the chassis so there really isn't any room for that I don't think.

Yes, it's just super glue. Strong enough to keep those on their place, and it doesn't dry too long time. Great and easy to work with. Your Mustang picture looks very good, maybe I should start building something like that, but I don't have a basis for the project yet... But looks very interesting.

Well for some reason my camera won't turn on minutes after I took pics, and since I'm at my dad's he doesn't have an SD card reader... anyway I painted some of my suspension (shocks are red) and the engine (red headers, rest aluminum) but since most of it was detail work it took a little while. I'll have to post up pics tomorrow.

EDIT: I was looked around more for 1:1 comparison cars... I found this RC car

Posted Image

That pretty much sums up what I want to do besides the decals, mine will be much more complete in terms of that. But the spoiler is exactly what I need... lol



That is a 1/32nd scale slot car. Not an RC. Just letting you know. Really cool car though.

I'll be keeping this build in mind. I have a lot on my plate already, and my workroom in the attic isn't air conditioned so my build schedule is limited. Given the lack of a deadline, I should be able to come up with something. (I take it you don't want to see the half-finished '66 SCCA Corvair Yenko Stinger I've already entered in the Historic Racing CBP... :D ) I've been considering a '70 Camaro done up for the Silver State run (I forget the actual name of the event, but it's a no-holds-barred high-speed run over about 100 miles worth of closed public highways in Nevada that's held annually) with a full NASCAR chassis. Like I said, I don't want to commit to this build yet, but it does sound like fun, and I will keep it in mind.

I've been away lately sorry guys, Jim no worries :(

Haven't seen that show yet... I'll have to check it out lol

And building has kinda stalled... I'm kinda in that "modeler's block" and I'm at my dad's again, but I did get some more detailing on the engine done.

I can answer in 1 word: SLOW! B)

I'm still around truck is now a D200 due to only being able to find some 8 lugs to fit the tires.

I hear ya.

I was able to get some assembly and more paint done for the chassis. I didn't like how most of the scheme was black so I painted things like the sway bars and shocks red, the axles and control arms steel/aluminum, and what not. Just to give it detail.

But Richard Bell had some 18" BBS rims and tires, I am forever grateful for those B) they will look sweet with the car!

Sorry, I've forgotten this CBP! I have some updates, what I have done, not much but here we go... First, ignition wires are installed. They are in correct firing order, I think. And also I'm trying to figure out the stance, I have no axles, wheels or anything like that yet, and I'm going to change those front tires. But maybe stance would be something like that?

And next I installed electric water pump. I had to install that little black part there (last picture) and I will install some wires next. I also made hole to that hood, but I'm not sure if I have to make it larger when I get blower's belt installed. But that's it for now, thanks for looking. I hope there's more coming soon.

Thanks Andy! And I had to think few moments about why were you talking about Chi Town Hustler, but it's in Historic racing CBP! :lol: It would be great to see some pictures of it, and if you didn't remember to post WIP pictures- that doesn't matter. Well, of course they would have been nice to see, but anyway, I'm waiting for the finished pictures... :D
