after some heated research and a simple decision i won't be using the blown V8 but rather the carbed version as the blower just doesn't fit right...but maybe some progress in a bit and i think the car setup will look better

Nice,thats,the,kit,im useing well chop top

It looks to be a great kit from what I seen looking through it. I haven't gotten started yet-life jumped up and stomped those 96 hour build plans,and then I just sorta haven't had desire to sit at the bench of late...I'll get on it though,this thread's inspiring me!

Apart from it needing a good dusting, I'm pretty much done. I wanted a minimalist look to it. Headlights stuff up the look I want, so it isn't getting any.

( Just search paint stripper in the forum and you will get an idea of what to use. )
