Body is done! For the finished look I’m wanting this car to look as if it just came off a dry lake.

That looks very realistic- weathered and purpose-built. Great model so far.

The headers were a challenge but I managed to squeeze them in there. Don’t judge me for the all the paint wore off the engine lol. I’ll have to touch it up. I do this with every build, knowing I shouldn’t paint anything till I have all the parts made for it.

would you please describe your thinking regarding the traction bars? They seem to be  parallel to the frame and welded to the axle bells. I have never seen traction bars or any locating method hairpins etc. like this. not criticism, just curiosity on my part. Great build, chop, weathering etc. thanks.

Well mine aren’t exactly right, I was trying to make them similar to what I’ve seen on a real deuce. When I started I didn’t feel like scratchbuilding my own so I modified the stock ones from the kit. They weren’t long enough to reach exactly where they needed to be hence their location. Also I didn’t have enough space to clear the floor pan which is why they lay a little flat. I’m not sure why the 2nd picture won’t load but check the link. Here’s what I was going off of:
