    There is 1 other thing missing from this kit, there is no indicator stalk (which is also the main beam ) luckily its a very simple set up so easy to scratch build also the steering shaft is too long and protrudes too far into the cabin (unfortunately I don't have the equipment to alter that but if you had a mill you could) 

    I think the turn signals were on toggle switches on the dash,

    Hi guys, 

    So.... spent a half hour or so at the desk looking at the rear of the project. After playing with some possible options, I did what I should have done first. I taped the ‘68 body and the ‘66 bodies together. The area from back of wheel wells to bumper is pretty close to identical. I don’t disagree with Dale or Bill, but really, I think the dimensions look pretty good. After some back and forth, I am going to leave it as is. I do really appreciate the input though.



    Hopefully some more updates in the next few days.

    Cheers, Steve

    ? wow, that thumbs up is small !! ?

    yeah its kinda weird, although the original box art for the kit shows the turbo almost the exact same way

    1955 Chevy Bel Air Convertible (1/16) (fs)

    the turbo is super cool and all, but i'm probably going to end up not using it due to my plans for some supercharged velocity stacks.

    Actually forget that, perhaps i can figure out a way to accommodate both the turbo and the supercharger together while allowing velocity carbs above that. i'm just trying to figure out how that would all work the way i'm thinking it, perhaps for now ill save the turbo for another future project.

    It's supposed to be a Accel Turbosonic setup. The carb set on top of the adapter and the turbo drew the air/fuel mixture through the carb and blew it through the bottom half of the adapter into the intake.


  4. With the carbon fiber parts that I have had experience with (Drag Cars), it's not that the paint is transparent and you can see the carbon through the paint, but it's the fact that carbon has a texture that shows up. It's the fact that the surface that is painted has a weave texture that shows through the paint. Unless there is a lot of sanding and blocking, then it becomes invisible because the surface is smooth. This is my experience with race cars, no experience at all with exotics.  

  5. Nope, haven't abandoned it, just very busy at the shop (I own a chassis and fab shop)

    I found a very nice resin Coyote on eBay from Outlaw Speed Shop. It came with a stock intake, Boss 302, and a Whipple.

    Coyotes are pricey, I picked up one out of a supercharged Roush Mustang with one burnt piston. It's being sleeved now.
