I like what I see here Cesar! The wheels look good! I opened up the grille on my Magnum and added a piece of photoetch behind it. I'm looking forward to more!

Yes, they look a whole lot better! Did you make these? Will they allow for lowering? Should look great when its done.

Thanks Mike!! Yes, I did it. ... but first I did all suspension modifications and assembly. Lowered... Wheels installed (last update)... After that I've decided turn out a coilover set w/ real mini springs... Got some reference pics, take some measures and did it on my lathe. They could be functional, but I don't want to make more mods in suspension arms. I would like to paint the body in this weekend.

Magnum it is a unstressed project. Unlike Mustang... Now it will receive a newest 4-link system, because this Mustang is in stand by... (Thanks Cliffo!!!)

Thanks Mike!

The coil overs look great. I really like the uniform distance between the coils. Thanks for showing the components. Nothing looks as good as real metal. But, I think I can do something similar with plastic, a punch, and some Alclad.

Thanks Rick! Yes you are correct... We can do that with styrene and I did for Mustang rear suspension in 2008... Now I wont use more, they are oversized. I'll do a new and correct size set... but I did a tutorial.

Bro, it's looking sweet! Let's see some paint soon  Just a tip Cesar... Get the headlight lenses fitted ( glued onto chrome surround ) before installing them otherwise they're very troublesome to get into place after the chrome surround is put in place 

This Magnum with your cool wheels & in black with a Hemi will be a cool looking hearse... I would love to be carried off in a black-beauty like it! Lol!

Thanks Cliffo! Soon as possible I'll paint, promisse!!! Today I'll restart law school... my holyday it's over... cool tip brother, thanks... My most miserable things in my models are clear parts... Always I do wrong things...

Cool build, those wheels are made for it.

Thanks Kane!! Yes, they are... Actually, I did machined aluminium lips and plastic wheels mods right for use in my Magnum. I don't damaged chrome plated and they fitted like as glove. I'm glad, I'm still learning use a lathe!!!

Thanks! You would like to know about Mustang 4-link? For bars I'd used 1.0mm and 2.0mm round rods, I did brackets from 0.5mm sheet... But I'll redo all of them... Today I got 3.0mm square tube. Gift from my super friend Cliffo!!! When Magnum will be finished I'll re-start my Stang. Thanks for interesting bro!
