Thanks alot fellas for the nice comments fellas... I really appreciate it.. Well I had a physical therapy appt. this morning and that was alot of fun...lol... They said everything is going good, and I was very happy to hear that... Since I still havent been cleared to go back to work I spent a good part of the day at the bench.. I got the electronics made up and installed, and installed the chute cables. I also added a remote oil filter housing to the engine, it's  a resin piece from off the ross gibson engines, I added an oil filter and some plumbing also.. still have a few more hoses to make up...I also added the nitrous lines from the nos solenoids to the firewall.. I also decided to go with the BIG slicks from pegasus.. I've decaled the slicks and added some detail to the rear wheels... I strecthced the rear wheel wells and little and added a piece of styrene to the lower rocker panels to try and keep that low stance... here's a  few progress pics... thanks for looking and comments welcome...

Is there any way you could shave some of the circumference off the rear slicks to make them look a tad bit more accurate? Right now they look like they are a hair too tall and throw off the front wheels with the size.

That's just my thought though. Looks great everywhere else! Keep it up!

Pete

Thanks John and Bill I apppreciate you guys checking in on it.... I get a lot of motivation and encouragement from all of you guys and I really appreciate it...

Well I've been making some progress on this one... I made a fire tank, by one of the tanks from the Chi-Town hustler kit.. it took a lot of grinding with the dremel tool and some sanding but I got it to work... I've also got the fuel cell painted I still need to plumb it and mount the fuel pump.. I've got the seat painted and covered, I still need to do the harness. I got the coil and wire installed, and I played around with the headers with some more shades of alclad to get a little closer to the ref pics.. the I sharpened the tip of a toothpick and painted on the weld beads... I decided to cut the front end off after all my plan is to now glue the hood on and make it a one piece... thanks for looking and comments are welcome...
