Started on the body work & was thinking of converting the carbs to fuel injected carbs. Not sure on what color yet so if you have any suggestions on color feel free to add your two cents on the color. [attachment=41806:IMG_1477.JPG][attachment=41808:IMG_1480.JPG]

Are those the kit carbs Seth? If so, I really need to snag one of these babies to steal the carbs from! As for colors, I always liked the Mopar High-Impact colors, a nice Sublime Green or Plum Crazy would make this baby look sweet!

What ever color you do it don't do the interior black...White with black dash/floors will stand out more...

Well have finished most of the body work & had to rework the hood so that the fitment of the hood to body looked correct & body is in primer. Also finished up making a roll bar & painted the center of the wheels. [attachment=42158:IMG_1504.JPG][attachment=42159:IMG_1499.JPG][attachment=42160:IMG_1498.JPG]

I have two colors in mind but have not decided yet on which one I will choose. I know the interior will be a matt white with a black dash & carpeting which will go with either one  of the colors I choose.Will also be scratch building a hood scoop which I'm going to try to make functional.

I have 2 of these kits. I just noticed the older one has an optional rear seat that matches the front buckets. The newer kit just has a bench seat molded in.

Been awhile since I updated this build so I have scratch built a intake manifold & a roll bar but the pictures will not upload for some reason. Hopefully I can figure this out because this happen before after the web site was hacked then when it was back on line it would not upload my files said they where to big but they are not.
