Most of the time with the older kits I use the metal axles, but this one has holes you could drive a real Rambler through. I just can't leave them like this, they are over a quarter of an inch.
Nice color, and I see you've already started filling the hole in the engine block.
I did raise the drivers seat headrest. I always do when I drive actual cars, and on this kit the headrests are adjustable. I figured why not.
Cool project. And do my eyes deceive me, or did you raise the headrest on the drivers seat?

I forgot to mention that any and all feedback would be most welcome. I have no problem with constructive criticism, good or bad. So fire away.

The last time I built a kit and replace the axle, I noticed exactly what you mentioned. This time I beefed the evergreen with some copper wire sandwiched by evergreen. Thank you for the advice, I appreciate it.
Nice chassis! Be careful using evergreen for the axle. I did that and after about 6 months the weight of the car caused it to bend so it looked knock-kneed. I solved that by drilling a tiny hole in the crossmember and inserting a straight pin to keep the weight off the tires.
