    Wish I was posting an update, as it's been way too long, butĀ for those of you in Indiana, this car is actually making it's racing return tomorrow night. My brother is getting it back together to run the Tony Stewart Midget Classic at the Indianapolis Speedrome. If you're in Indy, check it out!

    Thanks, Johnny! It was definitely harder than it looks, at least in brass, for me...

    Well, Chris, that's why I continued to finish it. I almost threw in the towel and went to styrene, but I knew if I finished it in brass, I'd be better for it.

    Shaun,

    Thanks for looking and the suggestion. While you are correct in that the uprights are in reality hollow, the fact is that the only visible sign of that is a hole on the backside which is obscured by the tire and wheel. I considered it though, until I revisited the references...

    Thank you all for looking! I stalled a little on this because I needed to do some fab, but I am back at it. The exhaust pipes don't have a support bracket in the kit, so I decided to make my own. I did it in brass because I thought it would be stronger, but I could have done it in styrene in a tenth of the time. I struggled with it for a couple of days, thinking about it many hours and several do-overs! All for a simple part... I also re-bent the headers so they came out more to the side rather than down to match the references I had, but I broke one of the white metal pipes, so I decided to replace the pipe with aluminum tube. It's a little rounder than the original casting and might help save weight on the model which will help save wear and tear when travelling. This sucker is going to be heavy!

    Good stuff, Chris. Your skills "toolbox" is getting so big with everything you've challenged yourself with on this build. Continued great work...

    Nice to see some progress on this one. It's looking good. Those wheels are definitely sweet...
