some more done on the interior
filled the gao from the grill/fender

i got the holes from where the exhaust ended in the rear valence i think its called? anyways i also got the pin holes in the bottom of the hood filled, and filling gaps on the chassis. i still need to get the other tub finished before i can get some paint on the chassis

some more progress, started scratching up a kirkey race seat and drilled the valve covers for ignition wire. also sanded the chassis and removed the brake and fuel line that was molded in

Im probably bumping an old thread, but can you explain and post more pictures of the tub. I'm trying to do this to mine but the tires are poking out a lil more then i would like. Thanks.

When you say the tires are sticking out more than you like do you mean like sticking out of the body? if so you would have to narrow the rear end. the tubs are made out of sheet styrene that i glued two pieces together to make it thicker and stronger and then just super glued to the chassis after the kit wheel wells were cut out. the interior is sheet styrene as well, for the design i went outside and looked at my dads 1:1 vega interior that has an tin interior.
hers some more pics of the interior

Seems like nobody is interested in the build anymore so i guess ill stop posting updates to this thing.

I would encourage you to consider that lack of responses does not equal lack of interest. 2,684 hits in a month doesn't sound like lack of interest. Most folks are not compelled to respond to every thread they open, but they come here every day or so to watch. You already have your followers and they're quietly waiting to see what you do next. .

Thank you Pete and mike I thought that since it seemed pretty quiet nobody was following along but if they're just silently following along ill keep posting although I love getting getting good and bad feedback and suggestions because it gives me a drive to keep plugging away at it thanks again, Jason

Jason you are doing some great work buddy! some times the forum gets a little quiet, don't let that effect what you are doing, like Mike said, your hits tell you that we are all looking in, some times its really quick and don't really have time to post, you just keep focusing on this Cuda so we can all see it done!

Keep it up Jason. If I may chime in on that carb setup, I say detail that dominator and build a pan for it to seal to the hood. I LOVE naked dominators LOL

Thank you Bill and Fred much appreciated! Fred, i was leaning more to the air pan for it too so ill probably end up going with that.
I got a little progress when i got home from school yesterday, scratched up some headers and i got the valve covers de chromed. I also got the mirrors on the body.
