Ive 'Suicided" the front end.

and decided to use the Revell Parts Pack 354 Cadillac engine.

Since the motors going to be out for all to see, I thought I'd try a bit of detailing.

I decided to drill out the carbs and add butterflies.

Are you going to change the '30/'31 cowl to a '28/'29 style? It can be done with a Revell '29 pickup cowl.

I'm really enjoying this build..the vehicle style suits my tastes...so I see a few more in my future build list! :-)

As per LDO's suggestion Ive swapped in the 28 / 29 cowl from my parts box.

I raised the rear frame Zed as I felt the car wasn't low enough. That introduced a deeper body channel and floor construction. Two steps froward..one back! :-)

Then scratched the rear spring and axle mount.

Been away on business so its been slow progress lately. I did however get some paint on before I left, so its time for some initial assembly.

If you were to build this same thing but as a body/frame dragging one that would be a sick combo! Having a practical one with a show one to go with it haha.

I love this so far, I wish I could save my 34 ford and do this to it.
