      We're still trying to solve a disk space problem. Unfortunately, it's being stubborn about getting rectified. There will be a long maintenance window this weekend, which I will announce here. Thank you all for being patient.

Looks good so far. I'm hoping to see race car style wheels and tires on it rather than dubs. I built a 68 GT500 kinda like it back in the late 60s. Big fender flares, wide tires and wheels, lowered stance, etc.

Thanks gents and yes Richard she will have race inspired rolling stock under her....

Wheels and tires are fromthe Revell Porsche Mobil One GT-1 EVO kit, along with the rear wing that will be narrowed a touch and the brake rotors and such.... I'll scratch out a front chin splitter too!!!

I like the look of this, especially the Mach III body sides.  Very aggressive appearance. I'm looking forward to seeing how this turns out.

Later-.

This'll be a great transformation!

The body looks like it was in a Mad Max film, in a previous life.

You might add rims outside of those centers to make the wheels deeper.

I'd love to see this build in a metallic orange with a carbon fiber hood that would be sick...

Might be kool but probably not how it’ll be!! Sorry!!!! Lol 😆 

 

Think I have the wheel issue figured out now!!! Found a set of more aggressive wheels that look pretty good under it so far!!!  May have to flare the fenders more and will be cutting the front fenders more to get this at the ride height I want it at!!!!

Well I either had an epiphany and took this to another level or I killed it and will send it out to pasture!!!!!! But as most of you know by seeing my builds I like them slung low!!!!!!!! In order to get the rolling stock to fit drastic measures had to be taken and the results are below!!!! Had I left the body alone and not cut it, it would of looked all jacked up in the front end and I didn’t want that!!!!!

Well Kerry, you took the leap so I can't wait to see how you blend in the front fenders.  It's fun to visualize it at this point, hope it works out for you as it has a ton of potential.  I think it's an epiphany.  cheers, tim

Front rotors are mounted, now I can start to reconstruct the front fenders!!! Been a bit slow at this point but it is moving along...

Tape is in place to hold front clip together as there isn’t much support in it right now!!! Only two strips about an 1/8th of an inch holding it together!!!!
