    • Site Upgrade   11/18/2017

      The Forums will be down, Sunday, November 26th starting 9 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online.  Update: I've had a medical issue come up, and this window might not get used. 
      Update 2: I'm moving the upgrade to 9 AM Sunday.

    Hi Chris,
    I think I found those holding tools at Micro Mark many years ago...I think they still got them.
    Thanks for all comments guys...
    I have looking for some nice headers for this build for a while now, but I have not find any that fits spot on. The space between the frame and the engine heads are very very tight.  I´ve been looking in evrey signle model kit , part box whitout finding what I´m looking for...so I decided to make my own headers the same  way that I did on the "Skunkworks  Pro Mod Nova"... from electrical installation cord.

    Hi Tim, yes I notice my previous uploaded pics don´t work. Photobucket want me to upgrade my account to get "unlimited 3rd party hosting"...and they expect me to pay $399 for that.......haha  .
    Instead I will re-upload all pics in this thread from page one soon. 
    If some one want to chek out my old stuff on Photo bucket I´ll put the link below

    It´s time for a small but nice update  
    I finaly got the gold base on the body. I used a IWATA HP-BH1 PLUS airbrush for the basecoat/clearcoat...everything went well this time, The clear coat (Sikkens Auto Clear 2K) was spayed in 4 thinn coats and the results turned out just great

    Small update.
    Primercoat complete. Not easy to get the paint in every corner on the inside...and even harder to sand the inside before the semi gloss black.

    Thanks Brad.
    The acorn nut was THE perfect tool to get the right shape. I wraped a small plastic bag aruond metal surface so it would not stuck in the bondo.

    About the primer failure, All I can say it was a mix of human error and murphys law.

    Thanks for all comments guys, I´m glad you like this build.
    Some progress on this one. The second primer layer went terrible, so I spent many hours to get the surface back on track again.
    Once the body was ok I decided to make a neat hinge for the trunk. I made the hinge from brass rod and tubing.
