Do cars with opening doors but no engine or chassis detail fit in the curbside class?

Mitch, I'm glad the advice was helpful! I've started using Tamiya tape on everything now and so far I've had zero issues with it. for the stripes I cut it into thin strips so it will make the curves needed without bunching up.

 

Jim, Thanks for the compliment! The huge engines are my favorite part of Pro Mod cars!

Hi Mitch, you are correct about me using hollowed out styrene hex rod as fittings, it looks ok but the pro tech stuff is definitely better. The only things to watch out for on the Gibson Engines are the uneven mating surfaces and occasional pinholes that need to be filled. I usually tape a piece of sandpaper to some flat glass and sand the parts against it to make the mating surfaces level. Also, on this engine I used small sanding sticks to remove the "cast" texture from the block and heads to get more of a machined look on them. I hope this helps.
