WHERE THE WHEELS GO...

 

I did a little measuring and I drew in outside corner lines. Then I traced the oval shapes, using the Template.

Next using Needle Scribe I lightly scribed the oval shapes, several times, with the Template. Then I used the larger Scribe and enlarged the Scribed Lines.

I sanded the Scribed Lines down nice and smooth. Then I went over the Lines a few more times with the Large Scribe.
I found some Low Rider Tires that are the perfect size for the Racer!

THE WINDSHIELD IS CRACKED!

 

The Attempt Body was from a built up kit from Ebay. The Windshield was cracked, so I glued it in and started sanding...

Added a little Squadron Putty...

After a little more Sanding and some Primer, here is the new Windshield compared to the original! I will mask the windshield area and spray it Gloss Black.

Here is a Mock-Up on the body.
