Jim those rims are sweet and look great. Glad to see you were able to do these. The little pockets look great.

I was wanting to make these for a long time but was not sure if I could without looking blooby. It took a while to figure out how to get all the holes lined up with the steps in all the holes. I am glad Rom had me do them now I will try for rears to mach.

Jim - Sweet looking front wheels. What's planned for the rear?

Rom - Maybe I missed it, where are the main bearings? What are you using for gasket material and whose oil will fill the pan? Talk about REALISTIC!!

On a serious note, what's planned for the induction? Full nitrous or something else?

Glad you asked Ted Im actually planning on making a few differant types of induction units for this block , this one will be a full nitrous but I will make a turbo intake as well as a intake that will accept a blower.All of which will also be availible to everyone. Oh and Im working on main bearing today and there will be a brass gasket between the heads.......LOL!

I can't believe you made that crank... sick work Bro. It would be a shame to cover it up. It would be killer in a garage or pit dio.

Rom, just a thought for you, but waaaaay back when I used to do a lot of 'glas fabricating, we used to fill an area with expanding foam & when we were done you would use acetone to remove the foam & you had a finished part. You could use the same method to fill your block & heads for making a master, & when done just drop them in a container of acetone, foam removed, clean parts, & best of all no epoxy residue to try & pick out. Just an ideal

I just love a good mock up! dont you? This is a mock up of the Aurora Speed Shop I bought a while back , Right now the collectors are going "OH MY GOD! HE OPENED THE BOX!!" but what good is an unbuilt model? It just a box of plastic right? The plan is to use it to take my progress shots with so I guess ill fix it all up you know paint and weathering and little detail nick knacks. Like Doc Cranky alway says make some "Eye Candy"hope you enjoy.

Rom... i am loving the mock up buddy. I love the whole shop idea but I have to admit, I am just like you when I got the speed shop I picked up I opened mine up and checked it out by putting the walls up. I bought mine to build as well. I can't wait to see what all you have in store for us with the shop. I know its gonna be killer!!

I would have done the same thing Rom. As you know, I love a good dio and nothing makes a model stand out better than an appropriate background. The yellow walls are a bit surprising though.
