    Hi. Finaly some progress...and it feels fun to do some modeling again The rear axle were taken from an Revell Top fuel dragster. I choose this top loader because I needed a narrow axle to fit in the small Vette body. With some photoetch plates it turned out pretty good. On previous builds I used the steering gear from Revells pro stock/pro mod kits. This time I decided to scratchbuild my own steering gear, because the parts from the kits didn´t fit and didn´t look the way I wanted. The scratchbuilt fuelcell...made from Evergreen plasticard. A scratchbuilt breather tank with bracket. Stainless tubing as ports...I even added a valve at the bottom. More details on this later. Mockup pics. Hope you like... /Rick

    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 http://s172.photobucket.com/user/RickHedlund/library/?sort=3&page=0 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 /Rick

    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. / Rick

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

    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. / Rick
