I really like the way this is coming along. The exhaust pipes look cool the way you have them exit. Carry on !

THE GAS TANK!!!

 

I wasn't too happy with the way the Gas Tank fit on Quad, so I did a little carving and sanding...

I got a pretty good fit after a little more sanding!

I think the Body and Gas Tank flow nicely now...I'm Happy!

ED'S LIGHT!!!

 

I found the perfect headlight in Ed Roth's Mysterion Kit.  I added a second little "Wing" on the left side of the Cyclops Light Housing to make it symetrical.

Here it is sanded and shaped!

TWO HARLEYS PLEASE!!!

 

I painted the Engines with Tamiya Silver Leaf, then the Engine Blocks Flat Black and the Cylinders got a Black Wash...

From the side you might not notice the Extra Engine...


DSCN0838Q_zps180cd797.jpg


But when you see it coming up in your rear view mirror, there is no doubt...

The Gas Tank just fits in between...

EASY EXHAUST!!!

 

I found an easy way to make Flexable Exhaust Pipes for the Quad...notice the Black Pipe!


DSCN0848Q_zps80488922.jpg


 I cut the Cord off of an old Dell mouse, and as it turns out the Cord is the same size as the Kits Exhaust Pipes! Here are all 4 Pipes in place...


DSCN0876Q_zpsb3f07be6.jpg


These Pipes are not glued in yet, I'm still working on positioning... B)

SCOOPS!!!

 

These 25th scale Scoops turned out to be the right size for the Quad!


DSCN0825Q_zpsfcc4f50a.jpg


I added a couple of Carbs and painted them with Testors "Lime Ice".


DSCN0863Q_zpsd5d1b742.jpg

 

Here they are in place!

HOOKIN' UP!!!

 

I needed to make the Exhaust Pipes longer so that I could Hook them up to the Headers, outside of the body. So I added some more 1/4" Tubing to the Exhaust Pipes...


DSCN0752Q_zps518eda0c.jpg


Then I added, 2 larger pieces of tubing on the ends, so that I can fit 2 Headers in each Pipe. I painted the ends flat black.

 

DSCN0869Q_zpsf58b2c52.jpg

 

Now it was time to mount the Body. I fit the Exhaust Pipes into the Body, fit the Body on to the Frame and fit the 4 Headers into the Exhaust Pipes at the same time. Then I put a couple of drops of Zap-A-Gap/Green Label between the Frame & the Body, under the seat.


DSCN0888Q_zpsf186351b.jpg


Here is a photo of the Headers fit into the Exhaust Pipes...
