Completion #2: Wired the motor with simulated clear/copper plug leads, Alcaded most of the chrome, scratch built new front wire wheels, tidied up some of the fit and finish and used real chrome springs in the suspension. oh yeah also added machined gauges.

Beautiful! The wire wheels are really well done. I built that kit in the 1960's. Mine never looked near that good! Nice work!

Very nice job! Next your going to tell me something like how you didn't like the kit decals and did all the fade by hand or something crazy like that. :lol:

You should do a tutorial on building your wire wheels, they look great.

I agree with all of the above. Fine work throughout and the wires really set it apart. Best build of this kit I've ever seen.
