Great color choice Gary, I would have liked the box paint scheme, but this looks really good on it, especially when you add the decals in! 

 

Oh, and the Richmond show is not gonna happen for me, it's falling on my on-call weekend, so I can't make it...sucks!

Gary, that '55 looks great, so what are you worried about, you'll do fine. Besides, I didn't do all that well in Fayetteville if you recall, so it all comes down to what the judges at that particular show like!

Nice Gary. I've thought about doing a Datsun 240z with a V-8 myself, but man I have way too many ideas for builds rattling around in my empty skull as it is.

 

You're doing an excellent job on this! B)

At first I hated the idea of the V8, but after seeing it, it looks pretty awesome in there. BUT I still vote RB26. The front fenders, are they installed backwards? It seems like the front of the fender should be the slimmer part, but its back to the door.

The front fenders would only go on one way. They have notches cut out to fit the bumper and tabs at the bottom that complete the front spoiler.
But now that you mention it, it does look kinda strange.



Any way, thanks to everybody for looking and the kind comments
