Should be back on this today... I had my wisdom teeth removed yesterday and it's been kicking my butt all day and night... I need to get my mind off the pain and sitting in bed bored out my mind won't do me any good...

I bought that kit, found bigger wheels and tires. But have to do some cutting in the front wheel wells otherwise the tires sit too far back. Might just use the kit wheels and tires and do a OOB.

Thanks guys... Carl, I actually haven't had any issues with the kit so far... Not a lot of flash like the tuner series had... My only complaint so far is Revell should have put this kit out with the option to have a stock interior, and being that it's the race version, I would have preferred stripped down inner door panels over stock door panels...

I agree with the interior.  Mine is going to be a street machine and a whole interior would have been nice.   I don't care for the delicate parts that make up the front suspension.  By the way, a small block Ford engine fits in real tight.

Thanks guys, had to go with the original rims I was planning due to the fact that they fit in the wheel well with no problem...
Working on this slowly, got the rear suspension almost done and with the front suspension done, I'll glue it in once the body is glued, so for now a mockup with the suspension temporarily in place... I screwed up and forgot the exhaust gets fit in with the rear suspension , but I'll figure that out once I get to that point...
