    I was able to tinker around on this for a couple mins today and got the firewall roughed in. After some filing and sanding I believe it'll work out great. Thanks everyone for looking.

    That's Tyrone. Didn't even think of them and I used to hang out with Tim. Lol. Wish he had not sold the car BC then I couldve gotten all the pics I wanted. Thanks again everyone for looking and I'll be posted more pics soon.

    If anyone sees anything I'm doing wrong plz let me know. I know there's a lot more bars to add and I'm still trying to figure out the back half. I'm actually kinda lost on it right now. I'm trying to find a few decent reference pics to give me some ideas but I'm not having a whole lot of luck. Just a lot of bars back there and not really sure how to start it out. So any advice or criticism is welcome. Thanks to everyone that has talent the time to look. I haven't shown a model in a contest in yrs BC I didn't feel I was up to the skill level to be competitive. I know this stuff is for fun but I've been raised up and actually been involved in many high end show car builds plus my dad has a car he shows and that is a very competitive sport. It kinda rubbed off on me and I put that mindset into my model building. Sometimes that is good BC it makes me push myself to the limits but it is bad also BC u end out feeling like u let yourself down when u don't win or even place at a show. But I'm working on that and trying to just have fun with my builds now. Anyways I'm just rambling. Everyone enjoy and have a great day. More pics soon.

    I'm gonna work on the firewall and finish the front suspension mounts later today and I'll post some pics. I'm really enjoying this build so far and reading everyone's comments are keeping me motivated and also helps me from get frustrated and giving up on it. Thanks to everyone that's watching.

    Thanks Tyrone. Watching your builds and many others on here have inspired me to give scratch building a chassis finally. Hopefully I'll be able to pull it off. Thanks again man. Keep up the awesome work on your current builds.

    Hey john. I'm loving this build. I finally have started my first build in forever and have it posted in the drag cars section. U and a lot of others on here are a big big inspiration to me. I'm not as good as u guys but I'm gonna try to make this one as nice as I possibly can. I have a few other projects planned but they aren't drag cars. They are gonna be more along the lines of replicas of a few of the past ridler great 8 contenders over the past couple yrs. Thanks so much for posting your builds and progress BC it helps me and I'm sure a lot of other along the way and really makes me wanna push myself to the limit. Keep up the awesome work. Can't wait to see more.

    I was already thinking about that one. That's the baddest radial cat on the planet right now. Gotta love radial tire racing. Best racing I've watched in yrs. Thanks for looking.

    This is something I've been messing with over the last couple months. Still have a ways to go but I'm slowly making progress. I'd like to thank Chief Joseph for his great looking drag radials and thank Micro Nitro for the awesome set of wheels. Hope every likes. Also a thanks to Extreme Scale Details and Futurattraction for some of the other great parts I'm using. Will have more updates soon.
