Meh.  Speed is just a matter of money.

Oooohhh the trash talk LOL I was waiting for that :lol:

 

I decided that since Im not up to building I`ll just be the grumpy old man on the side of the road shaking his cane at all the punks going by way too fast.

At least you found a productive way to participate! :lol:   I'll be sure to rev my engine and make a ton of noise when I'm going by so you know it's me.

Nice work Niko :)

 

Thanks!

 

Something that I have been working on the last couple of days. I installed the distributor to the engine, and put the Spark Plug Wires on place. They are Scale Dreams' stuff. First time ever when I'm using blue wires. Next I need to make a bracket for Alternator and then I'll make a belt for that too. Then the rest of the engine parts and all details...

Interior is Flocked, too. Before Flocking I masked the little carpet on driver's area and speaker grilles away so they will be painted later. Then just regular Flat Black from Spray Can and Flocking on. Not my best effort on Flocking, but luckily this one is not Convertible. :lol:  Dashboard was primered too after sanding a Mold Seam away.

Well, I had more pics but my phone is acting up so here's what I have for now on my Stepside.

I started it a looooonnnggggg time ago and gave up. The frame ended up breaking in 3 places and a lot of parts got slightly warped. Most of it is actually a ACR Viper. The only thing that is the actual truck is the body and the main frame rails under the cab. That's it.

I have a lot of work ahead of me to fix it...but I can do it.

Seems like this is the year of the Viper engine lol. I like the hood Peter, nice wheels too. Great work on the Engine and flocking Niko!

 

Not much to report for me. I'm finishing up the interior on the GTX and trying to hammer out a paint job for the hot rod, no updates yet.

Thanks, I need to adjust the Blower boost screw to get maximum performance... Vipers look out! :lol:

 

Here is Finnish Street Mustang that inspired me to build a Pro Charger engine.

Update:


I painted those Speaker Grilles and that little Floor Mat with black from the interior. Then I installed the Roll Cage on place. I have not test fitted it yet with the Body, but I guess it will fit fine. The Seats were not that simple... I found some seats from my Parts Box, but they had horrible looking Headrests molded in. And I really mean Horrible! Well I cut them away and with some sanding I got the seats smoothed out for paint. Now they are on place.

 

I'm away for the weekend, so I can't get any Bench Time. I will be checking in for others' Updates, though.
