Thanks, guys. Some of these detailed changes are coming along slowly for me, but I'll be picking up some momentum soon. Appreciate you looking in!

Thanks for the support, Doctor!

I've been able to get a little more done on the rear end. It really had me wondering what I had gotten myself into! I felt like I created the hardest kit I've ever built. B ut the cool thing is, it actually works.

Anyway, here are some shots of the shocks and the mock up of the rear end. I found the springs at Home Depot in an assortment pack and they turned being the perfect size, just had to trim it down some.

As I mentioned earlier, the injector manifold I purchased just didn't fit. So I decided to scratch-bash a new one. I made the manifold itself from scratch, then used the injectors from the resin piece. I think it's going to work.

The piece on the left is the one I made, the middle is the blower manifold that came with the kit, and the right one is the resin injector.

I added some ribs and a distributor location.

Cut the injectors off the resin part.

And the final part.

Love this build Art. Your work is exceptional. Using real springs like that make a big differnce. I'll have to look for some.

I'm not sure what I got myself into now, but I decided to open the doors and the trunk up. It's going to be a lot more work, but will probably be worth it in the end. The only thing is, I've never done hinges before, so it took me a while to figure out how I wanted to go about it. At first tried an internal hinge, but there's no room behind the firewall on this car, so I pretty much just emulated the stock Willy's location.
