She's looking outstanding, Tyrone! I haven't looked at the rules for this class, but I'm assuming tubular K-members are legal for it (given all the other allowable mods). I trust you'll be showing off your skills by adding one of those to the front end.?.?.? Keep it up, bro!

Hey tyrone what tires are you using on the rear. Ive looking for a small tire such as a 10.5 slick or even radials but from what i understand people are having problems with getting radials. Those are what i really want and need about 8 or 10 pairs for some of my projects but they are all on hold they i can figure out my tire issues. Hopefully someone out there can help me out with either resin or 3d printed ones. Your build is looking awesome though. I love watching all your builds. Hopefully one day ill be able to get as good as you and some of these other great builders on here. Have a good one.
Kris... the tires and wheels are from the first issue of the pro-stock cutlass kits.... Warren Johnson and Larry Morgan kits.... I sanded the raised letters off...
Scott... I'm gonna try and make a K-member for the front end... I've been having a tough time trying to find some good pics of the front suspension or the rear end set ups on these little beasts....

Great work. How do you manage to have so many projects going at any given time. Especially the level of detail you manage to put into your projects. Keep up the good work.

I suspect you've already googled and come up with pics, but here's one of the D&D Motorsports tubular K-member for a Mustang. There can't be tons of difference between different manufacturers, so at least this may be a starting point. I may have some pics on a different computer at home of my tubular k-member if you want/need to see different angles. I'm pretty sure I've got pics...
and pics of a couple of HP Motorsports' lower control arm kits

I'd love to build a drag radial foxbody! Would you have any idea where I can get my hands on a cowl hood?
I have an '84 1:1 that I've been looking to build a replica for some time. I've been hoarding the '83 convertible kits, but I can't find a cowl hood or ET Streets, I don't have facebook, but I'd love to get in on the lx race car thing.

Thanks for the nice words of encouragment fellas... I really appreciate it...
Ryan I usually make my own cowl hoods.. I'll be making one for this one also... well I made a front k-member and control arms from styrene rod ...I'm real happy wiith how they turned out... I modified the front struts from the pro stock cutlass kit, by making them longer... I made the rear wing. I decided to open the trunk, and I've started on the trunk floor and added some bracing and brackets to the rear end... thanks for looking and comments welcome....

You did a great job on your k-member, Tyrone. I like everything you've done on it. Looking forward to further updates!

Thanks fellas... for the kind words... I've started doing a little bit of painting of some of my parts... I also when ahead and made up the front springs and added the front disc brakes.. the pads and rotors are from futurattraction... I'm still up in the air about the engine I'll using, not sure about the turbos yet.... here's a few pics... thanks for looking and comments welcome....

Boy this build looks good! The stance is dead-on, your K-member work looks great. The frame work you've done up in the nose is super. I like everything about it (as usual!!!!).
