Great job so far! I used to own a '66 Sport Fury with a 4bbl 383 Commando, and that car could move like you wouldn't believe a big car like that could! Wish I'd been able to keep the old girl... I'll be watching this build for ideas to build my Johan '66 Fury! Keep up the good work!
Thanks for all the comments guys, means a lot! Like I'd said, I built this car for a local contest that went over Friday and Saturday. Not huge, there was about ten or eleven tables. A few tables were for military and oddball scaled stuff, but the bulk were 1/24 and 1/25 automotive. I won a trophy with this car for best box stock! The kids went nuts! A great experience that hopefully I can expand upon next year. I'll get a picture of it up as soon as I get a chance.
Thanks for all the kind words! I just got off of working nights, and got a little bit accomplished. The engine bay is done, hopefully it holds together when I jam it into the body! I always hate that stage of a build...
I never thought of trying that, I'll try it out after the show and see how it looks, thanks for the tip! showrods, do you mean the distributor cap? To the front passenger side of the air filter? If so, that's Tamiya dark yellow acrylic. The white is just X-2 Tamiya acrylic white.
