Very sharp job of carrying out your detail work on the inside, Darryl.  Since this is a replica of your 1:1, I'm trusting that the roll cage bracing behind the main hoop accurately reflects the way your 1:1 was built.  I'm just curious why parallel diagonals weren't run back into the trunk area like is conventionally done.  It obviously worked and kept you safe, but am curious nonetheless...

Thanks for all the comments guys! Scott, the rear support bars turned down where the back seat would be in most cars and attached to a piece of bracing near the rear end housing. No bars or support pieces showed in the trunk area. The only things that showed in the trunk are the battery and cables and the fuel filler. I hope to have some updates maybe by the weekend. Thanks again.

Great shots Darryl and your work so far is outstanding and spot on. I really hate to call it "work" though since building is so much fun. Have any under the hood shots you'd like to post?

Thanks guys....I appreciate it! I added a package shelf (because the real car has it), scratched out some coil over shocks and installed the rear end and wheelie wheels (made some springs for the wheelie bars), installed the fuel pump and I still have to route the plumbing and I added some burnt rubber debris to the chassis pan. I also added a shop rag with some tools near the battery. I'll do more miscellaneous things like the tools as I progress. I also found a trans that resembles a powerglide. Thanks for looking in.1416_zps096d422c.jpg1417_zps13d1da62.jpg1418_zpsfb250605.jpg1419_zpsf7ebb335.jpg1415_zps2b18774e.jpg

Cool race car and a really nice build, it's nice to have those pics for reference and even better that you owned the car.

Very nice work and interesting subject. It must be a lot of fun to build a replica of your own car. That's something I'd like to try too. Very nice detail work so far in the interior and chassis. I can't wait to see more.

Thanks very much for the compliments fellas! I've done some work including making the inside door skins/tins and quite a bit of work on the front end. I got most of the front end bars in place and made some coil overs also. Its starting to fall into place but still a long road to go.1446_zpsedf31f43.jpg1448_zpsea6f312e.jpg1449_zps6eb1b504.jpg1447_zps9c83ea94.jpg1445_zpsd4aad464.jpg

Although i know you've put quite a bit of work into fabricating on this, it still looks like its just falling into place. Sweet ride Darryl.
