Just a few little things to finish and this model is on it's way to it's new home, John Hale racing. Thanks for all great words from the great builder here on this build. I would like to thank Chuck Boerner for all his hard work on the decals and talking me through the printing on my alps printer.

100% scratch built. I do my own frames ( plastic ) and I made the body, using comp resins 73 mustang and Flashpoints Mustang Pro Mod .I used a Paul Rowe motor and tires. Flashpoint wheels, and rear end. I made the fuel and oil tank.
Mike

Will have the last pictures up soon as I am finishing the inside of the body.
