Not much to work with here, just a free body a tbird chassis i already had assembled , a new decal sheet and some donated parts that will be on the way soon. The goal is to make a 1996 Watkins Glen Car, I will be relocating the fuel inlet to represent the roadcourse setup- there is a donated body on the way for that. I am surprised the body fit over the old Davey Allison Chassis. That makes part of the build complete. Maybe no one will notice the ford engine under the hood .

wish me luck

here is the progress so far, what you will see is the relocation of fuel filler, this involved drilling and cutting up an old jeff gordon body my brother gave me-he thought i could make a petty racer out of it but it was a lumina with a damaged roof so cutting was the option.

I filled the other side with heated plastic, used flat balck primer and painted, now all i lack to finish this car is finding a hood and windows - I have a hood on the way but i dont think i have windows comming - can anybody help me with this?

I got a hood yesterday, I made my own windows ,

 I used masking tape to trace the outline and then placed the tape on a clear plastic like diecast cars are packaged in and cut them out - you never know the difference , Ill post pix later
