    Too Much Dragster
    This is my newly completed Too Much FED. Narrowed the rear wheels to fit different tires. Shorten the front nose 3/8". Narrowed the cowl an 1/8" and also laid it back. Scratch built zoomie headers. Scoops from the MPC jawbreaker kit. Flames were masked and painted to match the "Fooler Fueler" decals. Thanks for looking!

    Was looking for opinions on the wheel setup you see above. I started with a set of Z- man wheels. I took the large rear wheel and used it for the front and front was used on the back with a modified tire from the lindberg surf buggy. Let me know what you think. I'm liking it so far.

    Misha I cut the bottom half of the hood off and molded it to the body. No sectioning or pancaking. I'm not sure if there's a customizing term for that or not. I did it partly so I could smooth the front end around the grill. Thanks for the comments guys.

    Small update today. Got most of the body work done now. Mocking up wheels. I think I'm going with these, there from the 58 Thunderbird. Cant remember what the grill is from, maybe somebody can help me out with that. Using the bumpers that came in the kit. Last pic has the drip rails installed and the silver base coat applied. Thanks for looking.

    Next I rough out the window openings and door pillars. Needed to add some plastic to the back window. Top of the opening was too big and did not match the roof line. Some more sanding to radius the edges around the window openings and another coat of primer. Needs some more sanding and filler. Next up is to put the drip rail back on with some .010x.020 evergreen rectangular rod. Thanks for looking.

    Well here's what it looks like after some primer. No filler has been used yet. I also added plastic to recreate the door pillars.   Next pic shows the first round of filler. Followed by a wet sanding. Then another coat of primer.

    Well here it is all glued together, minus the rear window frame Now were left with some sheet metal to patch....I mean plastic.  Once the glue has dried. I hit the high spots with a 1/4" sanding drum. Followed by needle files and sanding sticks. Next up I'll shoot some primer to see where I'm at with the body work.

    So, now we need to bring the lower portion of the roof pillar in to match the upper roof section. I need to make a small wedge cut like so. Then bend the pillar in towards the center of the body. You can see the stress discoloration in the plastic where is was bent. Here's what it looks liked taped together Next will be to glue it together.

    Now that we have the top off. We need to cut some material off the rear roof to lower the back. I cut across the roof pillar, but not clear across to the edge of the rear window. I also made a vertical cut to seperate the roof top from the roof pillar. Like so. Then I scored on the inside of the roof, from one vertical cut to the other with a knife. This will allow me to bend the roof line up to match up with the laid down rear window.   You will also need to bend the roof pillars outward to match up with the main body. Next I will modify the main body to match up with the roof. More to come.

    Now with the back window out. We can chop the top off. First we make a horizontal cut from the rear window opening to the side of the car. Then from the rear of the side window to the cut that is already made. Should end up with something like this. The front window pillars get cut on either side of the tape used to mark the chop. This now frees the top from the rest of the car. Quick test fit, looks pretty good so far. More to come.
