I’m totally blown away. Your details, especially under the hood are top notch. 

What did you use for your under hood plumbing? Styrene hex, or aluminum? Also what did you use for the braided line? 

This build is getting me in the mood to do another big, fast car, using my 70 Impala body. 

The braided lines are beading thread and the fuel supply line is aluminum beading wire both from the craft section. Thanks and good luck getting that '70 going.

Excellent, one mean looking '70 Impala. Those full fat slicks are the way to go.

Great, inspirational build details as well.
