YES! Nice job.
So I said it would be a tribute.. that means I'm not sure if I can pull off the necessary details. And when I get mired in the details, that's when I lose interest in a project. I just want it to look like the McGee roadster for the average hot rodder, not be down to the last detail.
1. Louvers in the hood top: they are right down the center on the McGee roadster, I'll have to graft in some louvers from another hood. I've never done that before so?
2. Hood side louvers: I think I've figured out I can file down the stock hood side louvers to resemble the McGee
3. Dash/interior: I will be using one of Drag City Casting's up tops, so I might not bother with the unique dash
5. Running gear: the McGee had early Ford transmission and banjo rear with transverse leaf spring. I'm going to use the kit modern open driveline with coil-overs and ladder bars.
6. McGee had 36 driveshaft torque tube exhaust, may or may not try to replicate that.
I will be using the flathead/C4 combo from the 32 sedan kit. The front suspension is from the Revell Model A roadster.
As you can see in the pics above, I have already extended the decklid, shortened and molded in the front frame horns and spreader bar, and filled the cowl vent.
Anyone know where I can source a 2x2 intake for the flathead? Replicas and Miniatures of Maryland? I don't have a catalog so I don't know what they offer. Federal Mogul heads? I figure I'll just paint the Offys gold.
Thanks for following along.
