  1. Added the fire bottles, ballast weight, one header done so far and started working on utilizing the stock door panels.
  2. Got the doors cut open, paint applied and decals done.
  3. More work done. Engine is installed and wiring and plumbing is in full swing.

  5. I had considered changing it over to a single four and intake but I also considered that there are/were racers out there that use the same car for both Super Gas and Comp. eliminator. There are so many cars that run Super Gas that have the potential to run high 7's, low 8's.
  6. Finished the hood and painted the bumper along with adding the remainder of the decals including the tire lettering. Started on the engine as well.
  7. Also, there is a seller on Ebay that I've purchased many decals from. Very reputable seller. I believe he goes by the name of Repols. He does a much better set of decals for this car. Fremont decals are good but this other set has the correct foil lettering, pinstripes, correct colors and the message that is printed across the trunk.
  8. Your progress looks great. You are also correct in that this was a 4 speed car. I see that your color choice is deep metallic blue. The actual color on the car was a teal blue color. Dupli-color BGM0440 Bright Aqua Metallic is an almost perfect match.
  9. Thanks. I cut the pin from the front spindles off and raised it higher. The rear was lowered by opening the spring mount on the chassis so the spring would sit higher up in the chassis.
  10. Certain vacum cleaner belts are useable. Some are thin enough and they are cogged so they represent better than flat rubber or electrical tape.
  11. Decals are done on both sides. I also lowered the rear suspension just a bit as well.
  12. When you have as many unbuilt models as I do not every build can be a 6 month, over the top, detailed build. You've got to build some out of the box stuff from time to time. My latest is a Revell 57 Chevy done up as a Super Gas class build using a set of decals that I've had for years. Started by mocking up the chassis with a lowered front suspension as these kits sat way too high in the front for my liking. Primer, paint and started adding decals. I've never used Upscale Graphics before this and I'm pleasantly surprised that these decals are awesome.
  13. Here are pics from this past weekends IPMS contest in Jacksonville. This group puts on a great show every year that just keeps getting bigger each time. https://public.fotki.com/1320wayne/model_shows/2020-shows/jaxcon-2020/
