1980 big tire mustang rebuild “John wick”

Recommended Posts

So a few weeks ago I was getting ready to put my old build up for sale then a paint can  can fell on it. This forced me to rebuild the car with the extra mclaren body I had, but I’m not going to sell it. I’m trying to step up my chassis skills with this build as long with the entire detail of the car.

This is all the work I’ve got done so far, I’m gonna paint the floor plates separately than the chassis for the first time ever. Hope it goes well

I see that you have a few of these outlaw big tire projects in work in this forum.  Where do you source your turbochargers?

I finally got around to working on this some more and started on the wheelie bars. The wheels I ordered from protrack also came in and the look really good!
