Completion #4: Difficult kit to build but I'm happy with how it came out. Added machined engine pulleys, machined distributors with vac advances, new machined air filters, wired with clear plug leads, full angel hair interior with machined knobs on the TV and radio, real chrome steel coils springs, painted in three different yellows to get the final finish. Tinted the bubble top.

That's an understatement, but it looks like you were up to the challenge and ended up with a really nice model.  :)

You've got a beauty there! Amazing and super clean, especially as it's a very tough build. Wish I still had mine!

Great work!! I built one some years back but nowhere near as good as that.

 

How did you do the angel hair interior? All the KOOL Kustoms had to have it back in the day!

Hi Manuel, yep angel hair the stuff of legendary Kustoms. It's actually just faux sliver fur you can buy at your local fabric store, I covered the interior tub in double sided tape and then laid in the fur (it's stretchy fabric backed). Then I trimmed it with a pair of small scissors (like giving it a hair cut) just to get it more to scale. Hope that helps

Thanks for the tip! I've been needing some of that stuff. We used to call it 'Yak fur' ! :D
