    Thanks Nie & Tony glad you're enjoying the build. 
    Ron I always enjoy your projects so if I can provide a bit of a spark I am happy to do so.
    HRM provides resin pins on the bottom of the Webers but I fell more confident with brass rod.

    Great project, I'll be following.

    Not sure about the fender extensions but I used Fujimi's 1/24 scale 911 engine in both my 914/6 and 914/6GT builds and they fit just dandy.

    When we were developing HRM's 914/6GT trans-kit I spoke with DMC decals.  He was interested in producing multiple livery sheets but did not wish to add them to his line of decals.  He required that HRM purchase a minimum number of sheets.  A financial risk HRM was not willing to take on in addition to producing the kit.

    I have the Color Me Gone and the Ramcharger Dodge 330 kits available for trade if you are interested.

    Sure beats the Amphicar.

    Very nice wheel/tire set.  They are the same items included in Fujimi's Ferrari Daytona Enthusiast kits.

    Another way to attack an IMSA conversion would be to cut the fenders off a 2nd body and just add flat stock around the edges to move them outward.  I did something similar on the 914/6GT conversion.

    AMT did a few kits with the IMSA style fender extensions, the Monza and Corvette kits come to mind.  Might work well if you chose to take on such a conversion.

    Thanks Maxx.  Gene I am 99% sure they used a racing fuel blend.  I recall reading a race account recently where the fuel mixture caused an issues.  I'll have to look it up to be sure.

    This is my kind of build; a vehicle built for a purpose with significant history and replicated at a specific point in time.  Nice job Phil.

    In addition to the details Ace-Garageguy noted on the 914 the windshield frame turns back where it meets the removable targa top.

    They're even more impressive painted Ray.  The best scale Webers I have found.

    Its quite possible Steven they have been issued in resin.  They sure are nice in rubber though.

    Looks like a nice build.  How about some chassis and engine photos?
