More progress. The engine is installed and I've got to work on the turbos and more plumbing and wiring.

More progress. I"ve got some of the turbo plumbing completed along with the drivers side exhaust. The bullhorn is removable so that I can add and remove the front clip. I also started on the tire lettering. And the clear coat has been applied.

I wasn't completely satisfied with the clear coat as it appeared to be thin in a few areas so I sanded the finish down smooth and added a couple more coats of two part urethane.

Passenger side door is hinged now as well. Also finished all of the interior parts and wiring. Now it's on to the exterior finish pieces like the glass, chutes, fasteners and tighten it all up to call it done.

I cheated and cut them from an Action funny car diecast.

I think one more update before I put the finishing touches on this one. Both doors are done, painted the inside of the body and added extensions to the exhaust so the bullhorns will stick out where they need to be.

Your car looks awesome, where did you source the black braided lines you used for your remote oil filters and fuel cell? They look very close to 1:1 light weight stuff that isn't S.S. braided.

Thanks,

Fantastic detail work.  Love the whole build on this one.  I do have one question: Where do the 'A' pillars connect to the chassis/body?  It seems without some connection that roof would rip off on a 200 mph pass.

Thanks. The black braided line is actually elastic cord found at Michael's. It looks like high pressure line and because it's elastic it bends without collapsing.
