    Less we forget what hairy chested beast these cars were.  Here is Bob Bondurant firing up CSX2345, which is completely original and unrestored. It is exactly how it appeared in it's final event, a hill climb.
    CSX2345 was original painted Princess (Viking) blue but was re-sprayed Guardsman Blue (Shelby' team color) for the '65 season.  You will notice they didn't bother to mask off the jacking points just sprayed over them

    Thanks Brian.  Because of the body mods I used Dupli-Color High Build primer applied straight from the can.  I apply a coat then sand it back around any seams to flatten everything. Once I am happy everything is even I apply another coat. I really like Dupli-Color primer especially the spray pattern of the nozzle - good stuff.  Tamiya's primer is also excellent.

    I also like their standard primer. But beware the color is quite a bit darker.

    That's one sexy beast Gene!  It looks to be a recreation of CSX2260 which was identified by the yellow nose stripe.  Hope my paint comes out even close to that good.

    Thanks Maxx.  If I settle on a Daytona or Sebring car I don't need to create the suitcase bumps.  They weren't added until the cars went to Europe.  In addition my research indicates CSX2301 never received the suitcase bumps.

    Pretty sure that is photo of the 1:1 car.  I'm sure you could get close to that if you wanted to Jesse.

    Thanks Tommy.  The tires are just as nice as the wheels.  Yes they are knock only. 
    Not sure why my Fotki account has started reducing the photo size but if you click on the picture you can see the image full size.

    I fall into the more detail category.  I really enjoy researching my projects. I find it gives me greater appreciation for the subject.

    I like your 2nd number choice much better Gene.  Real nice build.

    Thanks Gene.  I haven't fully settled on an exact car yet.  Pretty sure it will be a '64 car in Princess (Viking) Blue.  I have the Scale Coachwork decal sheet so I do have some options.
