I haven't really been on this one as much as I'd like lately due to a new phase of my wife's brain aneurism recovery. Overall she is doing very well but has been up between the hours of 2-5 a.m. (which puts it right in the sweet spot of my usual bench time of 4-5a.m.) with leg pains. Priorities are in order and I tend to her to help her through this time. I'd like to extend some appreciation to Mr. Greg Pugh for the inspiration for this build. I was going to tackle this car any way but I was going to go with the gasser look originally. After seeing his I couldn't help but to slam mine as well. Although I wont be going to the masterful lengths that he is with his '54, I am going further than I thought I would with mine. Thanks Greg and for all who peek in and encourage me along here.
I'm right there with you on that one Bill. When I started mine I had no idea this thread existed and in reading it I see more flaws than I would have known about. I'm definitely looking forward to more progress on this one. My progress is stalled for the time being as my wife is now waking up at around 1-2 am due to a new phase of her recovery from the ruptured brain aneurism a couple of months ago. Its all a priority thing and as soon as this phase of her recovery looks like it's over I should be back on it.
Man thanks Lloyd! You've got that right about the quality of the kit. I bought all of these old Street Demons kits knowing that fact and am in the process of revamping them. It takes a lot of work but they turn out fairly nice if a little ..................er ALOT of TLC is given to them. lol
Man thanks Andy. It takes a lot of patience I can tell ya that. I took a mock up off of the internet from Jegs and went off of that so I at least had a plan and model of what I wanted to build for it. I use it on all my dual quad applications now:
Thanks Gino, Tom, Marcelo, Rob and Richard. Tom: I did look and I didn't have any "8" s that small. I see myself doing another one at some point in the future so I might acquire a decal sheet that does have one on it. Thanks buddy. Rich: I just couldn't help myself. lol
I just couldn't help myself! lol. Thanks Carl! Dave: Thanks buddy! Ok folks it's update time again. I've been refraining from posting too many updates just because I wasn't spending enough time at the work bench due to snapping photos and posting all the time. I've till gotta install the seat belts/buckles, the steering wheel and some accessories here and there but I'm getting there.......... I'm probably going to be sliding that drivers seat forward a bit. Looks a little too far away now that I look at it from this angle in pictures.
