After getting the Olds done and seeing everyone else's,I dug mine out and started doing some mock up and getting some ideas going....Still up in the air on wheels but more than likely going with em...

I've never seen or heard of Pegasus. That colour scheme would look cool on that body style. I've gotta hunt down one to build, there are a lot of nice ones being put together on the forum.

Gavent noticed any twist in the frame at all.....Motor is on the chassis now...And the body has went to the purple pond..Too many flaws in it

 

Richard,it does really pop...I got it on sale at Advance for $2 bucks and couldnt pass it up
