Lowlife ! ! Posted January 2 Share Posted January 2 (edited) Hi Guys... ! Some of you will know I did start my first Nascar project a while back, but as things went on i realised how many bits Id got wrong ! I was never happy with the paint, the front scratchbuilt chassis was supposed to line up with the hoodpins and didnt etc, so after more research there were lots of little bits i just thought I could do better ! As id already bought 2 kits Ive decided to start again, Ill be keeping bits like the old seat which im happy with. But a new start on the rest, this time hopefully more detailed too ! Considering Ive been on this a couple of weeks theres only a handful of parts glued together so far, but Im happy ! In the pic you can see the bits Ive cut out to remake. Front end will be scratchbuilt again too. So far the window net was cut out and scratchbuilt tube used to make the new bar around the drivers window. The bar under the dashboard is scratchbuilt and connects correctly to the front chassis rails. Rear interior panels were removed, to be replaced with ally. Rear wheel inner arches were extended slightly to fit the body better. Front firewall is 3 pieces as standard, so Ive removed all the joins this time ! Roll cage has been filled so theres no gaps. Oh and theres new hood support brackets ! Not decided on the decals yet, Ive got the Kodak No5 set but they are a bit old so see how that goes.. Just taking my time with this, fancy going to town and building something as good as i can possibly do ! Wish me luck, more soon.... Edited January 2 by Lowlife ! !
