    Bill, they're separate models.  I have two Speedwagon kits going at the same time.

    Once the trans tunnel is fab'd for the 5w, I'm going to fab both rear suspensions at the same time. 
     
    I did did fit the rear bulkhead over the trans tunnel on the stock body Speedwagon, and the firewall is ready to be fitted also.  I'll post pics once I take them.

    James, the trans tunnel is outlined on the floor.  I then take measurements and draw the pieces on index card. I cut out the pieces from the index card and see how they fit on the model. Once any adjustments are made, I then transfer those measurements to the sheet styrene and cut it out. And further adjustments are handled, and the pieces are glued together.

    2/3s of the trans hump roughed in.  The front 1/3 will be the foot wells, and where it blends into the firewall.

    You won't get any arguments from me on that Michael. 
    These are three of my other finished Deuces from Saturday.

    Very, very nice!   Love the chop and how it sits.

    Thanks for the kind words everyone!  I tend to build my models as if they were something I would drive 1:1.  Thus, some of the mods I do are referenced from magazines.  If you look at the new scratch built motor mounts, you'll notice they're for a flathead.  
     
    im not super detailed like a lot of the others here on this forum, so I usually won't include brake lines, fuel lines, throttle linkage, etc........building w/ that much attention to detail is hard enough 1:1, I just build car models to relax.  
     
    Rob, I have over 24 car models in various stages of construction, in various boxes, I will no doubt find them one day.  But in the meantime, I'll mess w/ this one.

    I couldn't locate the two previous Speedwagon projects I started, so I started another.

    To me rat rodding is more than a faded paint job, and being slammed to the ground.  It's a mix of unlike materials combined together w/ "flow", and it all works out together.  This project is just going to be lowered hot rod someone built. 
     
    If if I was going to rat rod it, I would have used screening for the floor board, sheets styrene for the side panels, and well worn bucket seats.
