Oh trust me i know. I haven't made a build thread for it yet, i might do it tonight. I sanded out the lines but couldn't do much with the dimple next to the drip rail on the rear side windows....guess that means some decals will have to go there! lol

I had to hide them going down... That is what happens when you don't have a pre wired distributor  :P

Id rather see a hole drilled in the center of the distributor and all the wires ran there. Just looks better IMO and its easier than trying to drill out each wire.

I agree, but that would need a pre-wired distributor...  I just dont think all 8 wires would fit in the tiny distributor that comes with the kit (It was a bad idea to skip purchasing it).

 

The pre-wired looks like is just too many cables to put on top of the engine, don't you think?

Its all up to you, i build to resemble the real thing. The distributor is small but its not hard to do with a pin vise and a small clamp to hold the tiny thing.

I've got you bud, but that is just the thing...  Neither one of those options would even get close to resemble the real deal:

In the future when I'm able to polish my skills, I'd sure love to build something to perfect scale...  Right now we are still calling this one my 5th project, so the mediocre experiments would have to suffice B)

That's because the engine you posted is a new Hemi, its got fuel injection and coil on plug ignition. Hey all that matters is that your happy!! Keep up the great building!  

 

One last thing, just wondering how much you spent on all the spray paint and jar paint? Id love to drop the cash and buy a stock pile like that!

Well...  I'm kind of liking the way the engine looks (More so installed), but yes you are right, it was not what I had in mind when I decided to wire it.

 

I couldn't say for sure how much coin I may have on Spray paints... But most of them are about $ 6.00 per can (Except the Metallic Silver TS-83 which sells for over $ 15.00).  Also made the mistake to order a whole bunch of Tamiya paints coded PS because the colors are extremely vivid, but these ended up being for RC polycarbonate plastic.

Dang 15 bucks!! Wow. That's a nice stock pile, most of mine is Hobby Lobby clearance. Just decided to get back into airbrushing for the 4th time. Hoping it will save me some coin, i cant keep spending 6 bucks on color and another 6 on clear on top of the cost of the kit. My 20 month old son takes a lot of daddy's hobby money.

The firewall really should be body color. And i'm with the other guy on the distributor, it looks odd with the wires ran like that and the distributor just up there in the open. But it's just a model, so carry on!

Guess I am going to have to show some of you guys how to wire kit distributors. Pre wired units look terrible IMHO. I wire mine to match firing order and everything.

Wooow....  Tuff crowd, and yet I thought I was going to look like a hero for making a kit look like this with only a hand full of projects under my belt :blink:

I didn't like the interior in Silver, it makes the car too plain, PLUS the floors have carpet texture

 

In any case, this is the best I could manage to please you guys

I would certainly love to see that!!!...  Never wired a car ever before, so a nice tutorial by someone experienced would make my day :)
