Thanks all, glad you all like it. The decals are available @ Franklin Ink on facebook: http://api.viglink.c..._13660421645034
Anne, when I get home I'll take a look at the bottle and tell you what kind it is that I used.
If I can figure out the brake line and how to run it I'll be doing great........gonna have to get some 1:1 pics I guess.

Here's what I've got done so far....... After having to dip the engine parts a few times until the mold release finally "released" I've FINALLY 90% assembled the motor. The block is a Tamiya blue, the tranny Tamiya gunmetal, oil pan is Testors diamond dust, the rest is Alclade chrome with a black wash to help some of the detail show and not just be chromed.
Next is the interior which is also close to being done. I'll need to gently clean it as it looks to have gotten a paint dust from when I was spraying a silver flake, not biggie as it wipes right off, just gotta be careful next time I'll pay attention before using that stuff and cover things up
Wired up the fire wall a bit. I'm going to have to change the metal strips holding the wires they're too big and look out of place.....<sigh>
Did a bit of a mockup to see what I was dealing with. If you look closely you can see the front two wires on the left of the distributor are broken away...that was on purpose. When I tried fitting the intake plenum it wouldn't go into place because it's molded for a snug fit, so rather then reshaping a chromed piece I pulled the two wires as the top of the cap is hidden under the intake extension and the where the wires exit make it appear to still look good
That's it so far....next is going to be doing the BMF. I wish they made it in black since I've stripped all the other molded chrome and blacked it out...oh well. a little chrome won't hurt, I was just going for a different look.

Just a few udates on the build so far......
The front suspentions, tough stationary unlike the rear is now fitted with springs and hydraulic cyclinders.
Had to modify the tranny support for the RGE tranny to clear it and motor sit level
But it's in there now...
Open to suggestions and any mistakes I've made that can be pointed out before its sitting on the judges table next month.......

I've been working on a few details while waiting for my black bare metal foil (STILL!!) I finally got the trunk lid interior with the amps glued in as well as the interior of the doors. Here are a few mock up pics of the car and car with the trailer I'm working on for it. I'm sure some will notice the injector marks in the trailer walls...since the trailer is a quickie build I didn't spend too much time on interior prep as the car will draw the attention and the trailer is just a prop for the display for next months show.
Lots of wires to trim and get glued into place....
