Ok, here is what I've been working on. Not much visually. Air scoops in rear quarter/window opening for rear brakes. Interior and chassis, went from snap together chassis to a glue kit unit. Building in fire wall right now. I will be re working the nose and eliminating the lower marker lights. Black lines on door are where new door lines will be.

And now my newest dilema, I want to have the car look low. I'm deciding if I should alter the body sides or put on side pipes. I don't think this will look right with the Viper pipes on it though. What do you all think???? They will be up a bit higher on the body.

As of now, the front lower marker lights are gone, interior work is getting further, firewall is in, door lines are marked out, rear quarter air vents are in...

Photos aren't the best but this is the rough in of what the blower system is going to be. I have to cut the supply hoses that will go up to the intake....

Thanks Tommy, the air tubes will come out of the opening in the top of the blower and go up to the intake runners. I'm thinking of modifying the stock Viper intake. Not sure yet though....

That blower setup looks potent!  Your doing some very nice work here, Doc.  From an aesthetic standpoint, the front end looks almost as if it's bent upward.  I suppose this could be a visual anomaly caused by the different colored plastic on top of the fenders or the absence of the windshield. 

I agree that the side pipes would be awkward with the viper exhaust, plus, they just don't seem to fit the character of the build.  Maybe some ground effect skirts would serve for the visual lowering.

 

(Boy, I'm sure in "opinionated mode" today :lol:  )

Thanks Ira!!!

 

Hey Johann, the fenders do have the look but they are level with the body. The glass I'm hoping will add a bit more weight to the visual look  when it gets in there. I thought of also hanging the sidepipes from a Cobra off the side but not sure I want the exhaust hanging on the side of this thing. I also looked at sectioning the nose to allow it to drop lower, there for I wouldn't have to drop the body sides down. That would allow the whole car to be dropped and it would be where I want it to ride....

Really like this project. I think that before u add sidepipes you get the bodied primed to see how they will fit in with the design.

Already thought that Bobby, I'm not sure they're gonna mesh with the design that's why I haven't cut holes for them in the front fenders yet. I may not put them on...... Thanks for the idea!!!

that is awsome !! love the lines / looks ..
i would suggest not to do any stuff on the bottom side , like the viper side exhaust or anything like a side skirt idea ..
imo it looks fine like this at the bottom !!
