Chris, have you measured the block to make sure its square at the bell housing area?
Probably the easiest fix is to do the block but with the mid plate being off it may cause other complications with tin work and such. With the body pivoted up it won't be noticable but with the body on the stand, anyone can look directly down from the top and see it. Provided they're looking that close which any judge most likely will. Bad thing is the frame is already painted and cleared. Wonder if anyone would notice the tabs on one side being behind the plate vs in front on the other.......

Any basic calculator is all I've ever used. Even to go from one scale to another. (Scale up for example.)

That is an amazing bit of work. Let me know how much a resin copy will be!!!! I'm interested in one.

I machined some from aluminum. The body accepts hypodermic tubing sized to rb motion heims for the ends. Some dont use that style end though so straight tubing can work.

Acrylic paint through an airbrush, a circle template and some blue painters tape is all I've ever used to do whitewall tires. I did a tutorial on it.
