    I like these cars with the 934 rear on the street,...my own preference,
    I thinking about drilling for lug stud holes for a street car ,I think it might be more true,..the kit gives some brake line brackets I would like to run the lines,... since I'm short on cluster panels for the top of the Fuel Cell I found some sheet metal,...I'm liking the Idea on a Carbon Fiber hoods ,I have some Bronze Carbon Fiber for the Orange car and Small weave black for a Black car,...alot of what goes into building and using the kit gets covered like always,..ya love doin all the detail and then it seems like with in the next 5 steps your covering it up

    Thanks,
    Barry Beachum

    I didn't want the brass look so I used Dupicolor GM Buckskin on the center pieces and the retainer ring I painted an aluminum with prisim clear
    I drilled the dimples out in the retainer ring and made the holes in centers larger for some pins



    This is mostly stuff mocked up for the 1st time but I think I'll keep the shocks as is ,...kinda like them,..The rotors will be changed alittle,.. I have 4 1/12 934 kits and 1 Martini kit and 2 SMS detail kits i'll see what else I can come up with,...

    I know what I have ,..Looks like you still tryin to figure it out

    I have not seen your post on the FE forum yet

    Barry Beachum

    428 did not share the same stroke as a 427
    428= 3.98 stroke x4.13 bore
    427 =3.78 stroke x4.23 bore,....go back and check yourself again

    I probably don't have to tell a thing you can tell us all about it,..

    And I'll be watching @ Fordfe site for a Posting,..since I've been there about 8yrs now they know me and my work ,BAD427SANG,...ROYCE PATTERSON you might know him Speed Vision had him on their channel
    as a leading Aurtority on Cougars and 427 and FE in general and if your smart enough you would look @ the timing chain cover on the Front of the 1/16 motor and then go back to your encyclopedia,... :wink:
