Thanks Bill, and Dave... Hope everyone had a great New Year... Since I'm giving the paint time to dry on the Chevy 2 I pulled this one back out... I've got the doors opened and hinged, and I've added some thin styrene strips to the doors and hood to make the gaps tighter.. thanks for looking and comments welcome... 002-2_zpsa0a98afe.jpg003-1_zps8ea61ec8.jpg004-4_zpsb4706716.jpg005-4_zps8e80b857.jpg007-3_zpsa7357f7a.jpg008-3_zpsec7dc358.jpg009-4_zpsacddde0c.jpg

Looking good, T!  Can't wait to see more.  I may have missed it, but what type of powerplant are you going with on this one?

Thanks fellas.. I appreciate it... Bob .. the wheel base on them is close but the pro sportsman chassis is a little short...Dirk I had a Ross Gibson engine lined up for this one but I may have to use a kit engine as a starting point the gibson engine is too tall, wont clear the hood.. well I have a small update... I got the rear coil springs made up and mocked up on the car.. I used the coil spring kits from Scott.. I used the rear end from the pro stock cutlass kit with 4 link brackets from Dirt Modeler... I also added a little styrene to the bottom of the front bumper to give it a lower look... thanks for looking and comments welcome.... 011-3_zps9cc16112.jpg010-3_zps16756e47.jpg008-3_zpse6e3f622.jpg007-3_zps8d7221e8.jpg006-4_zps4eb9ba8e.jpg005-4_zps7ad5b090.jpg
