I finished this guy a couple of weeks ago and forgot to post pics.  I used HOK oriental blue over a planet green basecoat.  The grill is a real fine mesh.  I had to tub it to keep the big tires under the fenders.

Real impressive build Jim, I like the look of grill and headlights.  What did you use for the headlights.??

Very sweet ! Love that blue. Are the headers home made ? Perfect stance with a 70s flavor on the fascia. Nice work, Jim !

Thank you all.  The headlights are from a GMC Syclone kit and the headers were in the pickup kit.  SHINY :) :) :)  RULES!

Nice build Jim, engine detail is very cool.

One question: Why are the rear wheels so far inside, they don't look so huge or is the axle so small??

Thanks guys.  Arno, I shortened the axle quite a bit.  The tires are big.  I could actually brought them out an 1/8" or so, but not more.
