Here is a small update. I got some painting done, The motor is installed in the chassis, I've added the steering column and wheel. Next up is the start of wiring. I'll add the distributors, fire bottles, and start on plumbing the fuel lines. I am having a blast with this project!

I also got the wing installed on the body and I've got the bodywork under way.

Thanks Guys!! I am having a blast with this build. I built the distributors last night and installed the fire bottles and some of the electronics. Hopefully there will be a small update tonight!

I got some time in on this today. Tires are detailed and the 16 plug wires are installed. Once I put the caps on the magnetos you won't be able to tell the firing order is wrong. Those two wires going into the firewall will hook up to the ignition boxes.

Got some more done this evening. Front suspension is installed. The front struts are scratch built. I still need to add the steering shaft. I also started on the headers and some of the wiring.

How did you letter the tires?
They are decals off the "Motown Missile" Slixx decal sheet. I sanded the lettering off the tires, added the decals and then dull coted the tires to blend the decals into the vinyl. The tire decals are in the center of this sheet:

Ron... This is an outstanding build and it is looking great. I love the color of the roll cage. What color is it? This is a very clean build. I am looking forward to your next update on this one.
Thanks Chris! The roll cage is painted Tamiya "Light Gunmetal". I think my next update will include the seat belts and the front brakes. Hopefully I will get some time in tonight or tomorrow.
