I'll be starting a build of this car soon. Waiting on a Rickie Smith kit from e-bay. Got the March '83 issue of Popular Hotrodding, some pretty good reference in there. Will be ordering decals from Slixx. My question is this. Does anyone know if the whole chassis is dark blue ? The article says that the roll cage is, I was just wondering about the rest of it. Any help will be appreciated.

I would assume that the whole chassis is blue, as it would save time and money in painting.

The Ricky Smith car doesn't have those wheels in it. Hopefully you have them already. If not, I can help.

Hey, I happen to have pics of the actual car that I got from the guy who painted it... the chassis and cage, as well as the padding, are all blue. Its a kinda weird blue, pretty much looks like if you sampled the blue from the middle of the door. I can post pics, but it will be monday before I can do that.

Here is a picture I have of the interior and roll cage of this car, not a good one but you can see the color anyway.

You're welcome, unfortunately it's the only pic I have for the inside of that car and it's definately not the best, but one can see some stuff anyway.
