Very nice looking engine, Dan

Thanks Carl, it’s from Gary Wallace and it went together nicely. 
 

More progress on the cab details and have started on the Charger now. Still have to install the windshield wipers, door handles and steps on the passenger side and anything else I think that’s needed. I also fixed the ruff paint on the work bench in the back. 
 

Thanks for everyone’s comments I appreciate them.

Man!!! This looks so AWESOME!!! One of my favorites, for sure... I love this rig... I have to build something similar... This too cool... This is one of the coolest models... I love it... Just too cool... That rig could work well at any of today's race tracks... And, I'm sure it would get some serious looks, too.... Amazing work...

Stunning, I look forward to seeing it in underglass!

Thanks Gareth it’s going to be just a little bit longer to get it in under glass. I’m going to wait until I have the Charger done.

I had to come up with a engine that Dodge used and I saw here on the MCM forms that this truck has the Detroit 6-71 and I was able too get Gary Wallis to send me one of his. 
 

Well I’ve been continuing on with my build with placing the STP decals on started on the Charger. This is my first NASCAR  build.

I used up all my Petty blue paint and after a little wet sanding I was able to burn through it so l’ve got more paint on order so I’ve finished my wet sanding and build as much as I can while I’m waiting for the paint to arrive.

Thanks JT let me know when you want to come over and see it on the display self. 
 

I’m calling this one done now and have it in under glass now. I want to thank everyone here that supported during this build. 
 

I’ve already started on my next build and will have a WIP here for it.

I'm a big fan of race team combos and this one really ahs the look. Your hard work referencing the original rig and detailing it to match ahs really paid off!

Cheers
