    Ok, took me a while due to moving my modeling station to a different room and some home improvement projects and just life stuff. But I have managed to get the interior done. 
    Here is a shot of the dash, notice the air vent to the left of the steering wheel has an nGauge tuner mounted in it. I just took an image from google, shrunk it down and glued it in. The dash is from the 2014 mustang kit because its like the dash in my car (non touch screen). 
    Here are the door panels with added seat belts.

    2012 Mustang GT - My Car
    Hey guys, I decided to build a model of my car, its a 2012 Mustang GT which makes it a little bit of a paint since they made a model of the 2010 Mustang and of the 2014. The 2010 is the same body as my car but it has a 4.6L, the Coyote 5.0 came out in 2011 so I had to buy both of the kits to make my car. 
    Here are a couple of pictures of my car, don't mind it being dirty.

    Notable things I have done so far, had to cut out the rear wheel wells so that the wheels I am using would fit and I had to cut out some of the chassis to fit the differential with it being lowered (my 1/1 car isn't lowered yet but I have all the parts, just waiting for cooler weather). 

    I made a rear seat delete and had to do some filling in the middle of the package tray, I guess the 2010 had two small humps in the package tray but my car just has one large hump. 

    Started making the window louvers today, daunting task but hopefully they turn out okay.

    I guess I'll have to get that kit too. We are up to three different kits being parts bashed for one model! haha

    Mustang Cobra Wheels
    I have tried looking around a bit and I cant find any cobra kits that come with these wheels and haven't found any wheel sets that look similar to this. Anybody got something or know where I can get? Trying to do a replica of this car as a commissioned build.

    Geronimo Works Gemballa Mirage GT Transkit
    I really want one of these transkit's if anyone has one. It's for the Tamiya Carrera GT I cant seem to find one for sale anywhere. If I don't have something you would want to trade for I would be willing to order what is needed to make a deal.

    Gah, I'm an idiot sometimes! haha I don't know why but if I take pictures on my phone and upload them here they turn upside down.

    09 Challenger and Diablo trade for parts
    Looking to trade these two kits for parts or kits that have a lot of good parts box stuff in them. Interested mostly in motors, wheels and tires (especially wider street and slicks) but would consider just about any trade as I will most likely not get around to building these.

    Both kits have been started but are complete. The challenger only has some body paint on the body that would need sanded. The Diablo has a few chrome pieces stripped (the ones that needed to be) and the interior was painted tan but could be stripped easily.

    PM me with what you have to trade and preferably some pictures.

    My first car was an '84 300ZX 5 speed, non turbo. That car was an absolute tank. I have a very healthy respect for Nissan, as far as imports go they are my favorite.

    As far as me being a Ford fan, yes I love Ford, hell my boat has a 302 in it. Although the new F150 and Mustangs are a bit on the ugly side. Oddly, my daily driver is an '07 Tahoe... Mainly because the Expedition has always been a bit lacking in almost every way in my opinion. The only thing it has over the Tahoe is independent rear suspension.

    And yes, there may be no point in putting a big HP V8 in a 300ZX because I'm sure you could get the same 540 HP out of that twin turbo 3 liter... But the twin turbo 3 liter just doesn't have the cool factor that a supercharged V8 has.
  11. FordGuy1984 added a post in a topic 300ZX - Suckerpunch   

    I agree! I don't have any wheels/tires to do that with though. I have a fair amount of spare parts and cars laying around but almost no wheels and tires. Not sure how that happens. Those R34 wheels were the best thing I had cause the stock wheels just weren't going to cut it, they are pretty ugly!

    300ZX - Suckerpunch
    Started this build on another site and thought I would share with you guys too.

    Basic concept is to cram a huge motor in a fairly small and lightweight car. The motor I had that fit the best without being too big was a supercharged 5.4L out of an 08/09 Shelby GT500KR.

    The wheels are from a Skyline R34 kit I had.

    First order of business was to make some space for the tranny. Then I went on to taking the motor apart, stripping the paint and giving it a fresher, more custom built look. Then I went on the building the roll cage.

    Now the plan is to finish building the chassis and interior and then getting the body put on and making a small cowl hood so the motor will fit under it. I wont be doing any mods to the body other than the hood. I'm thinking I will paint the body satin black and do the wheels in a bronze(ish) color. After all, I want it to look like a slightly hopped up tuner car but to pack a heavy punch!

    That's a scratch built cage from junk I had in the parts box. I was going to do a full 8 point cage but as you can see, there isn't much room between the seat and the door panel so I may just leave it how it is or I may do some tinkering with it.

    Cowl hood
    Pretty simply, I need a cowl hood, or just the cowl rather, I don't care what the hood came off of just as long as the cowl looks good to me. I have lots of bits and pieces I could trade or maybe paypal. Figured I would try here before I went to evilBay.

    Gemballa Mirage GT Transkit
    I have been looking for one of these for awhile now. It was made by Geronimo Works for the Tamiya Carrera GT. If anyone has one that they don't need or would be willing to part with we can work something out, or if you happen to know where I can get one I would very much appreciate the info! I used to see these on eBay from time to time but I haven't seen one on there in some time.

    Very nice work. Hopefully I can get started on one of mine soon. It looks great and I am glad the decals worked out for you.
