This looks fantastic.  I have yet to build one of the 87/88 T-Birds.  Any tips on improving the body fitment?

Build the rollcage before paint, tape it the the chassis and test fit it. I hacked out most of the top of the cage. Found it unneccessary. Seems as though it's the wheel well/ crush panel area on the chassis

I still followed NASCAR back then and Davey and Robert Yates were my favorites and this was easily one of the best looking cars on the track every week .  Yours is the very best build of tis race car I've ever seen !  Congrats on a job very well done !
