    On my Nicholson Cyclone I ended up moving the interior pan and engine forward a bit. It put the motor closer to the windshield and brought the roll cage inside of the rear window.
    Of course, that required a longer driveshaft, cramped the fuel tank,fuel pump and steering shaft......lol.
    It's all part of the "fun"!
    Keep at it, you'll find something that works for you!

    With, without, open, closed, anodized, polished......it's all good. It looks great to me!

    Joe, your project sent me down memory lane, lol Here's the Cyclone I mentioned and a picture of it that my brother took while we were there.

    Great story Joe. I share a similar experience. In April of '68, my older brother took me to our local racetrack in Atco, NJ (I was 10 yrs old) where I was first exposed to drag racing. The featured attraction was a best of 3 funny car matchrace: Don Nicholson's Eliminator II vs. Doug Thorley's Corvair. The races were during the afternoon, so i couldnt see the header flames, but the noise, the tire smoke and the races really left an impression on me! I was, and still am, hooked on fc's....
    Can't wait to see your Dart finished!

    I feel your pain! I had similar problems on the War Eagle Firebird I just finished. When I cleared it with Tamiya clear, the decals crazed. I ended up very carefully wetsanding it and clearing it with Testors clear. It's far from perfect, but I had so much time in it already I didn't want to strip it. In the end it came out fairly well.
    Good luck, I hope you can save it!

    Looks great so far Stan. The tail might be a tad low, but it's well on the way to being a great racer! Can't wait to see this one completed!

    Nice touch with the yellow and white markings on the differential. I had forgotten about all the markings I used to see under new cars when I worked for a dealership back in the 70's. I assume they're marked during assembly.. Nice build Brandon!
