I installed the Eight-Carburetor intake manifold and the carbs from AMT Double Dragster kit. Not really easy job to do, but I'm quite happy about the looks. I started the fuel lines too, next I have to make carburetor linkage, which will be huge job to do.

Hmm. I think you should end the body right where the trunk starts so that the rear of the frame and gas tank are visible. I really like what you're doing here. I've been kicking around the same thing but I haven't found the right victim yet.
Thanks for the great suggestion, Rob! I guess I'm not going to end it completely, but maybe little shortening should work. Gotta try and see how it looks. Thanks!
The engine might be that Wedge too, since plastic color is quite close and instructions look quite same too. Nothing beats Cubic Inches, so always better when it's a Big Block. And Thanks!
Thanks, Corey, too !
It has been on li'l hold now, since I have a bunch of exams in the school now. Once I get them cleared, I'll continue this one.

Let's try again. Last time my stupid computer decided to shut down while posting this thing.
So I've done a little work with the chassis, I cut the driveshaft tunnel area open, so I can install the tunnel when engine and rear axle are mocked up, and I can see how much it needs clearance. And before I can mock those up, I have to make rear axle wider, so I can test fit it with the body and rear tires, so I know what the ride height will be. Then I have to make that rear axle crossover part for the frame, and after that I can finally mock up rear axle and engine.
Also started the work with bondo! Tons of sanding and more bondo left, but here's what it looks right now:

I took a break of this build, but now it's back on the bench again. As previously, it's again just a project I work when others are drying, so the progress is not fast, but at least I have done something. I decided to shorten the rear end of the body a little. I think it looks better now. I am thinking of should I narrow the body a little or not.... Maybe I will just leave it how it is now.

Thanks Jason! Much appreciated.
Actually I managed to do some more work today. First I cut the Rear axle in to pieces, and the tubes where those Drive Axles (?) go, and drilled hole for the center part of that Axle so new tubes run through it. Sorry this is bit badly said, but that's just because I don't know how to say it in English. Then I started to make the rear frame for it from styrene tubing... Next I'll move on to Four Links.
