Looking forward to it like all your projects I check out. Are you going post what body filler you use and what grade sandpaper you use for your projects?

John... I am super excited that you are doing another drag racing subject and that its in 1/16th scale too. These are going to be some killer builds and I am looking forward to following along. I know you will knock these builds out of the park.
