I’ve been working on a few parts for my Harvick build.updated the containment seat best I could and the fuel cell.I went with the carbon fiber seat.The other seat I found was flat black and I didn’t like it as much.The perportions are a little off but after 5 days of trying I just went with what I had.Im going to try and pick out every detail I can on this build.

Nice work Lou! You always work so cleanly. Good to see more detailed Nascar models getting built.

I tried going to your fotki to see what else you have been up to but it says access denied. I had been blocked?

Thanks Clay it’s good to here from you. I thought I was through with nascar for a while after the Gordon car but after seeing how awesome you’re Boyer car looked I had to do one.Im not sure what’s going on with fotki.I didn’t even know I could block anyone.I wonder if it blocks everyone? I took a look at it and it says everyone for access.where would I look for blocks?

Trying to spruce up this engine a little. With all the black it looks kinda drab and hard to see all the wiring  so I thought that the more details and color I could add the better. It’s hard to see the wires going to the fuel rails but they are there.I think I’ll stop while I’m ahead .I’ll finish up with the carb linkage and headers and call it done.

Dang! I just THOUGHT I was a decent model builder! I built quite a few NASCAR kits back in the 90s, but your detailing is amazing. How much (if any) of the plumbing and wiring came with the kit?

Finished up the radiator and stared on the air ducts.on a sour note I screwed up the location on the floor board and had to move it over so as you can see in the pic I have glue and part of the carbon fiber decal mess I’ve got to cover up.any suggestions welcome.im putting a piece of clear acrylic tube at the end of the ducts that will butt up against the window to represent a NACA .............Shambles the kit comes with some molded in plumming but not much.
