I have to hand it to you Tyrone...You are definitely the Pro Mod man! I hope to catch up with you at a show sometime this year. I have other concerns right now and I'm not at the model bench but glad to see you're still going strong. Keep at it!

Tyrone!

 

Thanks for answering my questions! I have a couple of oddball bodies lying around and may convert them to Outlaw or Pro Mod style builds. I have learned so much following your builds! 

 

Please keep them coming!!

Tyrone, the carbon fiber looks great.  I love the shot looking down through the rear window with the carbon fiber showing.

Thanks fellas, for the kind words... I really appreciate it... Well I had surgery on my knee Thursday morning for a torn meniscus.. recovery is going fine, I spent a little bit of time at the bench yesterday and made up some "splits" (carbs) using the carbs from the pro stock cutlass kit. I've got them all painted and detailed.... So today I'll work on my favorite part.. plumbing... stay tuned folks... more updates a little later today... 002-2-1.jpg004-4-2.jpg007-3-3.jpg008-3-5.jpg009-4-3.jpg

I don't think the kit slicks look big enough, personally.

tyrone, glad to hear your surgury went well! that's ALWAYS a scary thing.

 

as usual your car looks incredible. i measured a kit slick vs. a pegasus slick. in 1:25 scale the kit slick would be a very close 34.375 x 17.25. the pegasus slick in 1:25 is 37.5 x 18.75.

 

as you know there are 2 pro mod tires available form both goodyear and hoosier. one is a 34.5 x17 x 16 the other is a 36 x 17 x 16.

 

perhaps the wheel opening is a little too large?

Tyrone.... Sorry to hear that you had to have surgery on your knee but I pray for a speedy recovery for you. I am glad to hear that the surgery. You are making some great progress and the split carbs look awesome. I am really digging the look of the Pegasus tires on this build. Keep up the great work.

Personally I like the bigger slick but then again it is too big scale wise. The kit tire just seems tiny IMO
