This was a fighter. It seems like just about every piece either broke or did.t fit. I had to add shims to get the front end to line up. The front suspension I cut off and added a straight axle and put a pre wired distributor on it. Thanks for taking a look Jeff

Nice Car from what I can see. I'm like a couple days work from

finishing mine. Anyway that you can show a larger picture with

the front flipped opened like you have it above? It's not obvious

to me how all that connects.

Great Build though!!

I know what you mean with this kit, it does have some issues. It took me over 10 years to finish mine after shoving it back in the box several times. It finally turned out nice and so did yours. I was happy when they came out with the stock version later.http://i1181.photobucket.com/albums/x440/rmvw/DSC03300.jpg

Thats argueably one of the worse kits of all time but you did it proud. It has a very

classic gasser look to it.
