I've been inspired by this thread...

http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=27328&hl=

I think I will try a exact copy of the 1:1 car but first I'm going to do a build on an unmodified SCCA kit chassis, hopefully I've learned stuff from my other similar build that is stalled at the moment.

Some of the things I want to do on this build are altering the body's wheel openings to fit the chassis, pinching the grill/headlight opening, adding the hood and rear side vents and having the option of 3 different wings

These first pics will show some forward and backward steps.

Cut out some discs and centered them on the axles...

I discovered that the epoxy that I used never did get hard so I had to do some "dentistry"...

...and a second sanding...

UPDATE Aug 23

What I have so far. Only unmodified parts so far are the front and rear glass...and I will be cutting the front glass and have not decided on the rear glass yet.

I can post some in-work pics if anyone is interested but most of them will show what did not work to my satisfaction.

Cool. There was a Mustang at this years June Sprints at Road America in the SCCA GT 1 class that is very similar. Good luck with the rest of the build!

Thank you all very much for the comments!

Here are some in-work pics from earlier.

Used a compass to mark what I wanted the cut them out with a drum sander on a rotary tool...

...glued them on then used the kitchen counter top to set them at 90 degrees...

SCCeh_2010_StangAug_312.jpg

...then bondo'd them on...

.Thanks Ray.

Sanded off most of what I put on...

Sanding super glue, the dust really hurts the eyes. Looking at my safety glasses shows how it sticks to everything...

When I started sanding all that bondo I was clean-shaven...
