OK I have been having a hard time recovering from my recent trip to the dentist but I was able to sit at the bench a little this evening and I started pluming the first side of the intake for nitrous I started by drilling out styrene rod to accept the fogger lines which I bent and glued into the intake. Then I drilled the top of the solenoid to run the power and ground wires. Thank you for looking and any and all comments, suggestions or critiques are welcome

Mike, this is looking sweet. I'm diggin' it. I'm gathering the stuff to build The Crow out  of diecast. I have the black body from a GMP '71 Judge and the nose from a GMP '70 ready to join together. I'm looking for a good starting point for the chassis. Any ideas are greatly appreciated. Thanks and keep it rollin', Blessings, Geno.

Geno,

   That will be a sick build and I will be watching it for sure! As for the chassis I have scratch built a few using styrene rod and then used an old pro mod chassis as a template and they were OK for this build I used a combo of 2 different chassis one from the Revell 55 Pro mod and also bits from the Revell Match racer firebird. And tbh I dont know enough about diecast to tell you if the styrene chassis will support the extra weight so maybe brass rod might be the way to go there and thats waaaay out of my skill set! Thank you for looking and the kind words
