Well the title stated Flintstone Flyer x3....so it's time to work on no. 2 and 3.

Going to do both at same time, again many parts are already fabbed, should...go pretty well.

For those interested in following again!

Started working on misc. to break it up, but soon realized I need to start with frames.

Deleted exhaust from both a little differently this time, a lot easier.

Thanks, it just stinks because these are commission builds, that I have to give them up when they are done. 

At least I made one show with the first one, hope to get these done in time also.

I know, what's the sense of having a stash if you can't get to them!

But this build has pushed my building skills to higher levels.

Thats a good thing then!.....i have no one to leave my stash to, so unless i want the kits to be abused, i better build them.

Haven't had a lot of time at the bench, plus everything is tedious right now.

Enlarged trani tunnels, made trani mounts and brackets, also some body sculpting. Forgot I got the cross member cut out and front frame rails revamped.

Those headers do look great, very difficult to bend. Looks like shrink wrap for the collectors?
