    It seams like my ranger is still on the list got as far as building half the chassis, the warbird is about 90% complete just the small and fiddly bit left.

    Pat that Duster looks awesome might give my Mustang a run for it money

    Heres where im up to on the Mustang

    Painted the chassis (there's a hint of where im going with the build) few touch ups to do





    Primed the engine and finished the air box, using a Ford Nascar motor with throttle body's and trans









    And finished the fuel tank

    Started filling the vent hole in the hood also cut out a small bit at the back for clearance for the air box



    Heres the fitment of the chassis to the body





    And the wheels ill be using



    Updated the front to resemble the new mustang front, also sealed off the front for better aero

    Got a fair bit done on my stang over started building the chassis on Indy 500 pole day

    Most of the chassis is done



    Only existing part used is the trans tunnel



    As you can see from these pictures how far the engine is going to be set back





    Also started on the rear clip




    Started on the body work with an extension to the GT500 spoiler



    Cut out the stock diffuser will be replaced with a new one

    I've started a new project for this years run, ill be building a 13' Ford Mustang out of a Revell Shelby GT500, i will still be building the DP Ranger but i thought this mustang will be a good cannonball car

    Plans are complete tube frame (ala trans am/sport sedan) with a Roush Yates Ford Nascar Engine, large fuel cell, sequential 6 speed gearbox and a few other trick items

    Build will more or less be a trans am car with a few mods

    Heres the kit im starting with minus the engine which i've used in a different project

    Here's my entry, started out building the interior tub, roll cage and dash started building on the Rolex 24 weekend and will be influenced by the cars in that race, I'm modeling my chassis off a Riley Daytona Prototype so in essence it will be a Riley Ford Ranger Daytona Prototype

    Here's the tub



    The roll cage



    The tub, cage and the start of the dash





    And the dash
