    Looks great. I also like the stock hood on this mustang. You probably need to build a more modern mustang to go under that cowl hood. Great wok on the cowl hood by the way.

    There were no holes in the trunk. Just glued on. I had the same thought on the chassis. I removed the fuel tank from the original chassis. I need to read the rule book, and do some research.

    I was pleasantly surprised how easy a repair this was. Here's a hint of where I'm going with this and I may need to move this to the  Drag Race forum.

    Some more sanding and o little filler on bottom edge and I was ready for final primer.

    After initial sanding the fit was very good. I had some Liquid surface primer I brushed on and let dry overnight

    I cut and trimmed MM fenders and used them as a template to know where to cut the body. I glued them in place and after allowing the glu to dry, I did the first rough sanding.

    A few years ago, Round Two , I guess reissued the MPC Multi Maverick Gasser kit. This kit came with two sets of fenders on for the regular wheelbase gasser and the other for the extended wheelbase altered. Some quick measurements and the wheel openings were just right. The idea was to reverse the fenders so that the longer skirt on the fender would better match up to the rocker panel and the shorter skirt or front of the fender would better fit the quarter panel

    Saving a Maverick
    We all know how rare Maverick Kits are, and how pricy they can be when found. A while back, I came across this little Jem on a familiar auction site. I don't rember my winning bid, but I can be cheap and love a bargain, so it wasn't a lot I'm sure.
    Once I received it, I disassembled it, and into the purple pond, love that stuff!   Overall not to bad door handles still there, nameplates intact, but the  rear wheel openings are a mess. Remnants of a hot knife it looks like. 
    The reason I bid on it and probably the same reason I won it was the rear wheel openings were cut up but I had an idea to save them.

    Beautiful, what about the gold lettering?  Are the slicks resin?

    Wow !

    Yours is one of the best renditions of the Missle I have seen. Your wheels make the difference, can you tell me the source?

    Back in the day, see avatar, the Halibrand magnesium wheels for the altered came new in a gold color. We sanded and polished the rear wheels and just the outer ring of the front wheels. As time went on you had polish the wheel weekly to keep their shine and the gold color / coating stayed the same.

    I'm impressed. Every time I think about this kit, I think I need to paint the stripes. Can you elaborate on what you did to make this look so good?
