Bugs me, too. I'm still debating over whether to clip the frame or not, but if I stick with the stock rails they'll definitely be smoothed up.

 

Which cammer is that, btw?

Its a resin cammer I have had for a while. basically the thunderbolt block and I think jo han cammer top end. those are about the closest valve covers out there for one. front cover is from the drag version of the 68 GT500 from amt.  its a mix of cammer parts from everyone put in one resin pkg lol

Your 57 is looking really nice Fred.

 

Do you BMF after using the Tamiya rubbing compund?

 

I have always been a little nervous about the BMF maybe not sticking.

Good question Rob.  I have always done my foil after polish and final wax without any problems. I was going to try foil before clear on this car but was a little nervous about how it would look.

That's coming out real nice! The big block, the stance, interior, everything is really coming together. I built one stock like the first car I ever owned and I'm working on ideas for the second kit, maybe a racing version, don't know yet, but you certainly got my ideas flowing.
