Well I still haven't made any progress on the Cuda as I'm feeling pretty burnt out from it so I'm building a K.S Pittman Willys that I posted over in the drag racing models.

I'll be building a 70 Cuda soon Jason, and it'll probably be Testors Purpliscious.

I know its been a while but I did get that drive to get back to work on her now that schools almost out, I saved my money and bought another kit and stole the body out of it and as of now the bodyworks finished and its almost ready for paint. I made a small change with the wheels after I got my hands on a set of convo pros and some new tires. If I go with the racemasters in the back ill sand the lettering off and put a goodyear decal on it. the original body will take a swim in the purple pond when I get around to building the new kit.

The body work and roll cage looks great. It's good to see you working on it again, looking forward to seeing more.

Rollcage looks great, personally for a race car, I prefer the red primer body

One thing I still need to do is get that rear end lowered.

I wouldn't be worried about that. You've achieved a rare combination with those wheels, tires and stance. Couldn't be more realistic and appealing. That puddle reflection pic was a cool idea too.

That's a perfect paint job in my book. It's super shiny, and purple, great job on it. :)

I looked all over your car for the "not near as good as anyone elses", but I couldn't find it anywhere. Very nice job there.

Thanks I guess I should said that the paint came out pretty good but It doesn't compare to most of the paint jobs that builders turn out on here. Some updates on the engine will be soon, thanks again.

mocked her up to see how the stance looks, the hood has been stripped and primed and its not warped the interior tub is just pushing it up. This wont be a problem during final assembly.
