You've got some catching up to do if the photo's I saw recently are of your finished car... PS it looks insane.

Ah, yes...there was more building than photo taking those last few days before I left for Atlanta! The car is pretty well finished. I do want to add a few more things.


These pics were about two days before I left. So it is even further along than these....














The paint is HoK Tru Blue pearl at the back fading into HoK Candy Cobalt, faded into black. Then I masked off the flames and put a base of white down, with a quick coat of pearl white over that. Then I airbrushed the yellow and orange. Once unmasked I cleared everything with a couple coats of Omni 2 part clear. After that cured for a few days I polished it smooth, and re-cleared it to even out the falmes and make everthing smooth. I added the decals, then hand bordered the flames and the "Problem CHild" with One Shot lettering emamel.

Chris I use Testors Acryl flat black jar paint for the hoses.


More engine work....I used a Shapeways Lenco tranny. I made the blanket from medical tape, and the straps and hardware are Studio 27 seat belts. I scratch built the shifter and machined the shifter pots. Just need to finish off the air lines.



I've also got more fuel lines on, as well as all of the throttle linkages. Just a few more things and the engine can be installed for good.

Thank you guys. Been a  busy weekend working on the pro mod. I've been banging away on the engine. I ran the plug wires....I used Pro Tech's 1/16 red wire into a Micro Nitro MSD mag. I made the valve cover boots from plastic.

I scratch built a new oil pump from plastic, and a new fuel pump from a resin body, and sheet plastic. I added Scale Hardware bolts to the front over of it. I also made a blower belt guard from brass and resin and painted it plat black. The barrel valve is made up from 7 pieces of brass all soldered together, then bolted to the injector hat. I ran all the injector lines, and I'm ready to install the main fuel lines next.

I also redid the valve covers again, and added bolt details to those as well.





A few sitting in the car....



I also got all my window tabs soldered on. These are Dirt Modeler 1/16 tabs.



I need to get the rest of the plumbing done this week, then get on to paint on the body!

Thanks for looking,

Man this thing is turning out unbelievable Clay, Really motivates me to get started on my new project . 


What do you mean by this?


"lock in the resin body and keep me from having issues down the road"


      Should i beware when using a certain primer on resin?  I never worked with resin much at all.




Also what program do you use to make the chassis and print the plans?

Thanks Joe.


I've had problems with resin from  both Flashpoint and Comp Resins. Whether it is messing up the paint after everything had cured, or sometimes you don't see the problem until after you put the paint on. Almost like the resin has a skin, and once you sand through that skin, the resin stays sticky no matter what you do. My Pistonator PS has issues like that. No lacquer primer or sealer seemed to take care of it. I'm hoping the epoxy primer will do it this time.



You say you're running out of time. Are you planning on having it done for the Southern Nationals?

Yes! That is the plan...

Thanks everyone, I'm working away!
