    Kevin, given all the fitment issues this kit has with the body/tub to frame, I'm lucky it's not worse. 
    Thanks Ace, 'slow and steady. 
    I'm happy with the overall progress.

    Thanks for the positive words gentlemen. Here's what I've got with the initial fit. 
    As you can see the stacks don't line up perfectly square within the hood cutout, but , it's not crooked, or tilted, side to side,  I can live with that. 
    Ace, you can see in the rear shot those tabs for the rear panel fit perfectly around the frame, I didn't even think about that! (thickness of tabs) , the frame just slid right in place, wow , I lucked out. 
    Let me know what you think.

    Those builds look great Tim. I love the turquoise one. That engine color with the black and white just kills.

    That is an interesting (in a good way) color Lee. I love that body style, it looks like it's going fast standing still.

    Thanks Kevin, those stacks are such a central part of this kit, I had to do something with them. I have some nice spun aluminum stacks from 'Speed City Resin, but , the kit stacks where just easier for me to get in place. The Alclad adds a lot of realism to them. 
    Okay, here's where I'm at now; everything is attached and touched up, ready for the final push,........putting that body on, and , seeing how things line up. Should have pics of the results some time today.

    Thanks Andy, it was Kevin. There was a bug on my interior earlier, flew over by my PC, weird.

    Ace, that sounds ace, I'll try the mask thing, thanks.
    Thanks Ray, can't wait to see the big Ford. 
    Carl! I can't believe I've inspired you to want to build a kit, yes! Have you built one of these before?
    Andy, they are the kit stacks, I de-chromed them and did a lot of sanding/prepping and then shot them with Alclad chrome, out of the spray can.  
    The engine has been uninstalled due to forces beyond my control, stay tuned!

    Andy, I certainly believe that about your cat. Cat's love playing with things that are 'not' cat toys. My black cat is quite the pistol. 
    Ace, I think I might hang on to this when I get it done! Thanks for the positive words my friend. 
    Kevin, I think it's a classic too, how can you 'not' like a AWB '65 Mustang funny car?
    Here's what I've got so far: 
    One of the rear tires looks kind of crooked in the pic but it's the camera, bends it weird somehow. And I've still got a couple of places to touch up as you can see.

    Those are some tiny parts. they look very well done though. Cool work Cameron. that rear end looks great.

    One other thing that is 'off' here is the front axle. The drivers side wheel/tire are off the ground slightly. I didn't catch this when I epoxied the piece on, so , that means the other side is further extended which could be why I had some difficulty attaching the trailing link to the chassis on that side, I couldn't figure out why it wouldn't stay in place when I was attaching it. Here's a pic of how things lay underneath, there are still a couple of things to finish up: Like the brake disk that has slid out on the passenger side rear wheel. Man, taking photos sure does let you know where you're at.  
     

     

    There is no adhesive on the rear shocks. The fit was 'just' tight enough that for me to place the shocks into the chassis then just 'slid' the tops along the axle housings(?) until the tabs slid into the holes. Tricky little buggers those shocks.

    Very nice, love those blue mufflers, looks great with all the green.
