Got my stuff today, couple of Engine, brakes, turbos and a mill and lathe. Top notch all of them from what I can see. Overseas shipping in 18 days, but well worth the wait.

I use a corded Dremel too, mostly for rough grinding to make bigger room for tires etc. But also for buffing paint/chrome/aluminum with some cloth/pads attached to it. There are sooo many things you can buy for your Dremel, its more likely your imagination sets the boundaries rather than the Dremel.

I think I have gotten the stance about right also.

The entire body is widened about 16 mm in scale, that would be about 400mm in real life. So it needed to be quite wider than normal. But hot rods aren`t know for beeing big cars either :P

 

Now the fun part of sanding, priming, putty, sanding etc to make all the joints look good.

I kind of went overboard with the cutting on this one. It ended up a fair bit wider than normal. 

I wanted to keep the runningboards and the small fenders, thus I widened the entire body, scratched a frame and married it to a Corvette front. Will cut away the airduckt later on, to get a more stock looking frontend. Build a new bed, using the existing sides.
