  1. Thanks Anton yes I started out using a bars that are about 4” then switched over to 2 1/2” bars. The next one will be all 2 1/2” bars 
     

    Thanks Dave the dark blue that’s on the truck is MCW Dan Gurney Dark Blue Met. 2084. The lighter blue that’s on the cars now is there dark blue met. 6964. I didn’t realize that they had more than one dark blue met. when I had to order more paint and I picked the wrong one. I have the correct paint on the way and will be fixing the color to match the truck and what the cars were. Here’s where I’m at now with the building.

  2. Thanks Jeff it was very evident that the color was off while I was spraying but once I started I had to finish both of them to make sure that they both will look the same when they’re done. I’ve got them both buffed out ready for the new correct paint to arrive. I was able to wire the spark plugs I’ve seen in the pictures that the wires were either black or blue and my last 2 per wired assemblies are black and blue so one is black and the other one is blue. Getting ready to build the roll bar for the other car now.

  3. Thanks Carl

    Thanks Brian I just used what Dan Gurney had. 
    I’ve been busy on the Cuda’s engine bay and have started fabricating the roll bars. I can’t believe how complex they were but I read somewhere that they were designed on a computer and it was the first time as well. It would be cool if the old files could be used to 3D print them. 
    I appreciate everyone’s comments.

    Thanks Jeff this vessel is a medium sized they can be a lot bigger.

    That is a very impressive build! I like the display base as well. Where did you get the guard rails?

    Thanks Jim the road sections are the old Italeri kits. It would be great if they would reissue these kits I would have to pick up at least 6 more of them.
