This was my first attempt at this kit,and to be honest it wasn't terrible to build considering the age of the tooling.Pretty much box stock but I did add plug wires,fuel lines,craft ribbon seat belts,wire insulation for the blower piping boots,and modified the hood scoop from a Badman kit for the injector scoop.I am not terribly happy with this build,but I have learned from my mistakes and have another one in my stash to try again.

We are very often not happy with our own builds. I think yours looks very good.

Steve, I don't know why your unhappy with how this build turned out. It looks very good to me. And I like others, think the the addition of the scoop is a very nice touch.
