    thanks Steve. really nice jog on that stripe. I thought it came out of the kit that way. a viper motor would fit in there real nice, Steve....and you need to get that 65 out again... I know.. sorry for drifting the thread. id that a resin body? sorry.

    looking good Steve. like that stripe. is that one in the Dirty Donn kit? also, had reserves about the shaker, once done and painted, it looks really nice. like the side by side shot.
    .. and what's the deal with the 65 in the background?

    good job, see, opened my mouth when you knew exactly what was going on. I have a few of those chassis, maybe I will look into it. keep us posted. when I start mine, I will post up, a few too many projects ahead of it.
    56, only age better is any number less than 56. you weren't born in November, where you?

    hey!! watch it. I'm only 56. just getting to the prime of my life.  that is looking really cool. I am a bet old school when it comes to bodies, instead of "bowing" the body. trim the wheel wells to match the curve of the body and maybe cut down the rear axle to fit those meats in or cut any flange that stops the rear wheel from sliding over the axle. this will let the tire slide further down the axle to fit inside the body properly. absolutely love that dual plug hemi in there.

    I have to double check that is the kit I have at home. if so, I would be interested if you still have them.

    great band, great album (yea, I said album) looking like a cool build. doing something similar but mine will be a pro street car. looking forward to your build.

    great stuff as usual Joe. killer details. haven't been here in a while to look, but it would be very helpful is someone would do a small tutorial on the electronics that go in these cars. would help a lot. and as for the color, gunmetal gray on top and black sides with a black scoop.... just saying.

    as usual, nice work James. will be another killer build. missed your mug at the meeting, hope you are getting the concrete poured in this nasty weather. do you have plans on making the next one, I will bring the 59?
  15. tubbs added a post in a topic 70 hemi cuda Feb 18 pretty much done👍   

    hehe... he said "strokes"!!  I agree 100% bought a 69 runner way back. had slapper bars on it. the only condition was that he took those silly things off before I came to pick it up.
    great looking build Fred as always.
