Joe, you know me... I even after months of having most of my chassis together, I tore the entire funny car cage out and redid it again. Just because I didn't like how it was looking.

Love the work.

Now that you have one, make the other 3 by puting 3 pieces of styrene together and using the one you as the master. I make all 4 at one time.
Love the work.
Joe, Derricks suggestion is actually a really good one, and one that I use when making multiples of something the same. It makes things go faster and you know they are all going to be the same size. The only issue that I came up against was drilling the holes my bit would wonder going through that much material. So I did both Left and then the Right sides together. This way you know that the holes will line up for your heim joints.

looking fantastic joe! great idea on mounting the body. is that something you always do?
Thx. Dave, Honestly this is the first time i ever scratch built something of this magnitude, I seen Clay Kemps build of a 1/16th daytona Promod he was working on and said that has to be the way he is mounting the body, so i went with it. It fits nice and tight and i will not have to use any glue to hold the body one which works great, I plan on displaying it with one wheel on and one off. Then if i want i can pull the body and put all the wheels on. Look for another update tonight.
