I've been slow off the mark but the Mercedes does have some primer on the body.
Still a few months to go so I should make it before the finish date.

Finally got the Datsun where I could mock things up. Stance is just what I wanted out of the box.
Torsion bars and leaf springs, at least things are familiar underneith.
I need to do some work to the engine to make it a little more streetable.
If you look close you might see some of the secret parts of this build in the background, but you'll have to know what to look for and what you're looking at. I'm thinking of adding a second entry to the Cannonball, the PT Crusier but I've already started it and haven't taken any pics yet. I'll have to check with Nick to see if it will be OK.

i see ladder bars and a big ol hole in the hood
This is a Cannonball, thats to be expected. Those weren't the parts I was refering to.

Frank your Mo-port is looking good.
Ron, the stance on the Datsun is perfect.
As for me work on the GTX is progressing slowly, I'm on body work right now and there's still a lot to be done. I also started working on the hot rod again, I'll have something to show in a few days I hope. Anyway good luck to everyone else!

Sounds good, I'll add it to the list,
as for my Chebby, it's not much farther then it was the last time I posted photo's, having a hard time building right now with all the fun I'm having driving a friends toys, well that and the usual working on my car and truck and working full-time thing.
(yes the Duster is as fast as it looks, that's a BUILT 340, The Vette moves pretty good too for being the Lowest HP V8 Corvette ever built)
I'll have some progress soon now that I finally have a wiring harness off my workbench.

Sure Nick, put me on the spot. Now the guy who couldn't even finish his 62 Dart for his own Cannonball last year has to finish 2 kits for this years Cannonball......LOL !!!! I'll try to get some pics of the PT up, its in primer but all the parts are still on the sprue.

It is kinda hard to want to work on a model indoors when you could be terrorizing the asphalt in either of those fine examples of american mucsle, man they're nice.

Right up to the time where you have to pay to fill them up I suspect.
Fujimi have attempted to sabotage me by discontinuing the wheels I wanted. Well, it's not that easy to stop me. Oh no. I'll, i'll, i'll...
...use some different ones.
Other than that i've been distracted by a Hemi Hydro (can I do the run by boat?) and a heap of other kits I couldn't resist starting.
So still no progress from me.

Hi everyone, I'm not out or anything just been busy doing other things. I thought I'd get a little update on my 41' Coupe. I wasn't really happy with it's frame so I found a junkyard special Willy's on ebay and will see about using it. I'm also adding bucket seats to it.
If possibile I would also like to add another entry to my list. It's a 70 Super Bee pro street from amt. The only thing that's been done is the body was sprayed flat back. If it's okay with everyone I'd like to get it entered as my second entrie.

So uhhh, at Nick Winter Automotive we entered our busy season, but that hasn't stopped the boss from forcing some time to work on his toy. So the boys Fred & Ed are back on my Chevy. (the Super bee got the boot outside for now) We got it the suspension buttoned up and ready for a coat of cheap but good old DOM 16, (remember the budget end of this ) anyway after the guys emptied years of accumulation from previous owners plans, we finally had our base with it's Stance and rollers figured out, I like it so far boys, (you may notice me in my natural habitat at my desk), The thought of averaging high speeds over free ways, interstates and highways brought up the point of handling, the doctor had our prescription for that, we don't need no stinking factory rear end or drum brakes, what if we need to stop!
looking at the great progress you guys have going I pulled the Chev out and started mocking things up, my suspension is secret for now, but I will say 4 wheels disc brakes go nice with those mags and modern rubber.

Great work everyone! Here's a short little update on my stuff. I've lowered the top on the hot rod and painted it black for now.
For the GTX I've cut out the doors and truck then reattached them the trunk will have to wait until after I get the back of the interior in.
And a little mock up test, I also thought it would be neat to compare the changes I've made to a stock one.
