I was a bit worried about the stance on this sucker, so when I epoxied the glue and they looked firm, I tested the chassis with the body to see how it was going. Here are the results:

Thanks, Jim, something (I wonder what that could be?) told me you would like this one. LOL.

So far I really really love the way this kit has come together. It's a little tricky to get the chassis into the body but I think going slow and careful does the job.

Working on the interior, the engine, and some other details which are bound to slow me way WAY down.

Stance is dead on ! That rake looks sweet ! I like the paint , wasn't sure when you first had it laid out where you were going with it . As usual , I just followed along to see where you ended up ! Lmao !

Thanks, everyone. This kit has me very intrigued because I can see myself just building several. It's a fun kit to work on, and it really does have a particular appeal whether you go stock, racing, custom, or even daily driver. Lots of potential for folks who want a fun model to build.
