Well its been a bit since I posted on this thread.I test fitted the motor in the frame to start planning the exhaust.

Threw the body on to check hood clearence.......
Posted Image
And it didn't fit.

So I decided to add a Competition Resins 6" outlaw cowl scoop.

Posted Image
Forgot to take a pics of the giant hole I cut out of the hood.

Finally got to work on this build again.

I took a skull made by Scale Dreams and turned it into a switchbox for the air-ride.

Scratchbuild a driveshaft.

Then a club member pointed out that there was very little travel room for the driveshaft without it snapping.So, I modified the lower section of that x-member.
