Thanks guys......

Motor is done for the most part. All detailmaster hardware on this one with Pro Tech PE bolts. The headers required major clean up so much I think I needed a little more on those inner seams..... :<img src="http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":P" border="0" alt="smile.gif" /> Blast belts are extra seat belt material from model factory hiro kit. Again, I went for the older vintage look. This car had.

Here is a chassis test fit. Its looking busy. And I am pleased by that. Building a top fuel car with no detail is like asking me to cut my arms off! ;D

Beautiful work on this build David!!!! I've always liked how this kit depicted the front wheel offset (another Big Daddy) what a pioneer he was to the sport. I'm sure he will be thrilled with your build
