I've been inspired by this thread...

http://www.modelcars...topic=27328&hl=

I think I will try a exact copy of the 1:1 car but first I'm going to do a build on an unmodified SCCA kit chassis, hopefully I've learned stuff from my other similar build that is stalled at the moment.
Some of the things I want to do on this build are altering the body's wheel openings to fit the chassis, pinching the grill/headlight opening, adding the hood and rear side vents and having the option of 3 different wings

These first pics will show some forward and backward steps.

Cut out some discs and centered them on the axles...

...slicing the hood and fenders to bend them down...

...first sanding and separating of the main pieces...

...second primer...

I discovered that the epoxy that I used never did get hard so I had to do some "dentistry"...

Posted Image

...and a second sanding...

UPDATE Aug 23

What I have so far. Only unmodified parts so far are the front and rear glass...and I will be cutting the front glass and have not decided on the rear glass yet.
I can post some in-work pics if anyone is interested but most of them will show what did not work to my satisfaction.

Cool. There was a Mustang at this years June Sprints at Road America in the SCCA GT 1 class that is very similar. Good luck with the rest of the build!

Thank you all very much for the comments!

Here are some in-work pics from earlier.

Used a compass to mark what I wanted the cut them out with a drum sander on a rotary tool...

Posted Image

...glued them on then used the kitchen counter top to set them at 90 degrees...

Posted Image

...then bondo'd them on...

.Thanks Ray.

Sanded off most of what I put on...

Sanding super glue, the dust really hurts the eyes. Looking at my safety glasses shows how it sticks to everything...

When I started sanding all that bondo I was clean-shaven...
