Finally got some paint on the body. Tamiya light gray primer, Createx Opaque Red (4 coats), and 2K clear (3 coats). Tamiya semi-gloss black for the hood, spoiler, and intake components, most of which will probably still get a coat of satin clear. Detail painted the engine and chassis.

Looking really good so far.

pardon my ignorance, but what engine is that? Looks like a shortened first gen Viper.

340 V8 with a Viper-style intake, I believe.

 Not my best, not my worst, but calling it done. I admit impatience and a bit of frustration over how long this one took me kinda got to me. Not a bad kit at all, but have to admit, I think I enjoy building box stock better. Tubbed the rear, cut down fuel tank, had to modify rear seat and deck. Narrowed rear axle, changed wheels. Stance didn't end up as low as I wanted, but it'll do.
