This is looking really good Ron..... keep it coming...

 

Thanks Tyrone!! If it wasn't for the inspiration I've gotten from your builds I'd never be able to pull a build like this off!!

Little bit of work done today. The wheel and tire combos are finished, front spindles are cut to length, holes are cut in the fenders for exhaust. and i have an idea of how the front will sit. As always thanks for looking!!

Big update this weekend. Got the gauge screen installed and wired. Headers are made, transmission is built and installed. The interior is complete except for the ignition boxes, fire lines and computers. Batteries are in. I think i'm cross eyed after all this wiring!

I am having a hard time believing this is 1/25 scale.  You must of robbed every electronic gadget in the house to source all that wiring.

Looks really Fantastic.  B)

I really like the Hemi decal on the valve cover !

Gene, I've never done a completely detailed pro mod before. I'm going off the fantastic build up pics in Tyrone's photobucket albums. Thanks for the compliment though!!!

You're welcome, fantastic build. I've got to build a dragster SOON! I'm getting burned out on my current build.

Super sweet job. I love all the detail, thanks for sharing the pics I like you learn a lot from watching others builds and then try and mimic those details in my build.

 

Great Job so far.

Man, this is amazing! I've never been into race cars much, but seeing the amount of work that has gone into this build, I'm blown away! Nice work!

You do some very nice work Ron. I really like how clean you assemble and detail. And the mixing of the old and the new. Very cool project!

Thanks for the compliments guys! Clay, I try very hard to keep everything neat and orderly when I build. A messy bench/shop just makes things more difficult. I am constantly tidying up my bench.

 

The mat is dirty in this pic but you can see that the only thing on the green are parts for the 'Cuda:

I use these little clear drawers to keep small parts from disappearing.

Bigger sub assemblies are kept in trays. You can see the chassis and decals rear tires and some detail parts in this shot. They tray is big enough to hold the entire project should I decide to put it away for a while.

Spent a couple hours on this today. All the wiring is in except for the rear kill switch. You can see the completed rear end/wheelie bars in the first pic. They are permanently installed in the chassis now. I just finished painting the injector hat. Plumbing the fuel system will be the next project.......one I'm not really looking forward to. This motor would demand a lot of fuel so I've got some serious work ahead of me. As always thanks for looking!
