Thanks Jeff! I work on it during the day before I go to work 2nd shift. I wanted to make something unique out of this kit that I would be proud to display.....I believe though, I am beginning to fall down "the rabbit hole." :D

This is pretty cool. Could have saved time on the scoops as they are still optional. You could have built the aluminum window blanks. I prefer the scoops myself though. These are fun cars. I have a 40th anny vert and would never think of parting with it.

Hey thanks Fred. Yeah I looked at the window blanks too but the scoops seemed a little more appropriate to the theme I am heading in. Would love to get one of these someday myself and I dont blame you for not wanting to part with your 40th!

So as I said in the last posting on 4-2, I was planning on making a Kenne Bell supercharger for this build. The Kenne Bell is the supercharger the Super Snake uses soooooo it had to be in the build. I decided to make it out of wood because of the shapeability of it. I include a picture of the 1:1 supercharger so you can see my inspiration for the design. I think it came out pretty good for having to cut apart the upper intake and fuel rails.

Ooops! I noticed in the last photos I had forgotten to paint the front of the supercharger black to match the 1:1. :wacko:

 

There we go!

I am digging that kenne bell. They sound sooo good under load. Scares old ladies and small children. I agree with you on the side scoops. I think the 07-09 cars look better with deletes and 10 ups need the scoops. I may try this build myself but will do the black/ gold 50th anny car

Thanks again Fred. Would love to see some pics of your 1:1 !

Thanks Gary. Been waiting to see some progress on yours. The wire harnesses you are doing are just awesome. Gotta figure those out for my build here.

Nice work. Looking great!

Thanks Chris!

Thank you Santiago.

 

I will be putting up some new progress soon of the chassis and the Super Snake wheels mounted. It is quite AGGRESSIVE!

Thanks Henry. There is definitely room for upgrades with the kit, but this is sure shaping up to be an interesting display piece. Go ahead and start on yours, it is a fun builder for sure.

Thanks Dave. Should be putting some pics up of the mounted suspension and finished chassis tomorrow. Exhaust was painted to resemble stainless with the purple/blue/brown heat trails.

Ok so the suspension is not quite done yet, but I thought i would post up some more progress of where I am at on this build. The chassis paint is actually spot on to the 1:1 but the photos show it lighter, the color was mixed with Testors enamel gold, light matte tan, and matte (1166) brown. It came out as a slight metallic medium tan.
