Completion #2: Wired the motor with simulated clear/copper plug leads, Alcaded most of the chrome, scratch built new front wire wheels, tidied up some of the fit and finish and used real chrome springs in the suspension. oh yeah also added machined gauges.

Thanks guys. The wire spokes are small lengths of 32 gauge fuse wire

Beautiful! The wire wheels are really well done. I built that kit in the 1960's. Mine never looked near that good! Nice work!

Very nice job! Next your going to tell me something like how you didn't like the kit decals and did all the fade by hand or something crazy like that. :lol:

I agree with all of the above. Fine work throughout and the wires really set it apart. Best build of this kit I've ever seen.

totaly outstanding ,, a few Q's , i assume you stripped the chrome plating before alclad , the springs , i would like to see pics of how that was done , and you must show how you did the wheels and the gauges , oh and what do you eat, maybe that has something to do with how you do what you do lol

Fantastic! The front wheels are amazing, for sure. I'm wondering how you got the decals to lay down so nice. They're quite a task.
