Turned out great, Kurt. A cool concept, with interesting and well executed mods and details. At the beginning of your build thread, I wasn't so sure about those wheels, but they are actually perfect for this build. Very cool, Kurt, and very well done.

Ya….just “a few modifications”. Excellent build Kurt, I enjoyed the WIP on this. That multi piece body would have made me wave the white flag. I figure you must be part rabbit, because you go down lots of rabbit holes… You seem to very good at finding,  just one more thing to add. Thanks for sharing your build.

Cheers, Steve

Turned out just amazing,  I'm glad I followed along with the w.i.p. so many great details 👌 great build, thanks Kurt!

Thank you for the emblems, that made a HUGE improvement!

Since I took these pictures, have added some detail, and now I'm trying to control my OCD about fixing things, because I know when I start trying to fix something it gets worse.  Improved the trunk handle, gloss painted the c-f fender guards, added tow hooks.  I'm not happy with the gap under the headrests, working on that.  Not happy with the windshield, but will let that go.  The sun visors are too big, no way that would work with the steering wheel, possible to make smaller.  Needs a radar detector.  Anyway, when I'm finally satisfied, will take glamor studio pictures and post here.

I love it, great work!!

Thank you!

Took "studio" glamor shots today, outside in the shade under various cloudy sky, with a thunderstorm in the distance so I had to work fast just in case. 😬  Start off with open hood/trunk and closeup shots.

License disappearing act, sort of required for doing the Cannonball.

While I was taking pictures, a Javalina trotted through the yard.
