Decided to add a little detail to it. First up I roughed in the headers for it, and built a frame.

Have to add the front suspension yet.

How about a starter, and oil pan, and water pump pulleys.

Oil Filter, and transmission.

Finally got the guts to tackle the front suspension on this build. I took a 1/4" piece of tubing, cut it 1/16th" thick, then cut that in half to make the springs. The drop axle is a piece of florists wire. The small wire betweent th frame is for the engine mount.

Next I put on the tires to check the stance.

Then dropped on the body to check clearances.

I may have to tweak the front just a tad lower.

Okay guys here's the latest. If you have a engine you need a rear end, and drive shaft right.
