thanks for great comments everybody.

Great project personally I would leave the hood scoop off

I don't think I will use it, If I choose to do a twin turbo set up, I will use 2 ''logs'' ''hilborn feeders''. 

 

Great build, love the craftsmanship. Are those 1/24th Rig tires on 1/16th wheels?

Yes, this is the revell 1:25 Kenworth W900 tires on 1:16 wheels, Jim (micro Nitro) did the wheels specially for those tyres.
I prefer them from the flashpoint funny car tyres because the FP ones don't have enough rubber on them for the solid and cool look that I want for this truck.

Just a beginning of a reflection for the turbo setup. If I choose to install the turbos in each side of the front of the block, this exhaust location can contribute to the bad to the bone look.

The half of my work on that truck is mock up. This time, I begin to know what it will look like.

 

I will do a spring leaf set up like this one in the Street Rodder magazine.

Thanks Dave, Ira, Henry, Mike and Ray, it's always a pleasure to read good comments.

 

I worked on the chassis of my truck. I decide to redo the rear end.
I will probably have a more assembled chassis to show soon.
Thanks for looking
