I don't plan on staying out there long because I have to clean around the house, so I hope to get more done tonight.

As to your exhaust dilemma, Google Micro-Mark and see if they have some kind of scraper that would allow you to remove the molded in piece while leaving the rest of the chassis undisturbed.
I look forward to seeing more progress on this kit.

And I found the tires I'm going to use. They are Good Year Radials that are newly issued and have no raised lettering, so I'll just get some decals from somewhere that say "BF Goodrich Radial T/A". They are the correct sidewall size and with a little bit of sanding/weathering, they'll look like BF's (no, I will not be using the Monte Carlo SS wheels).
