So after looking everything over I realized there was no fuel tank so I scratch built one from some extra flashing and sprew from parts tree. Following are pictures of the primered chassis with no fuel tank, unpainted/unsanded fuel tank, and the flashing and sprew used to make the tank

I also added a scratch built external fuel pump and paint, then installed the tank in its appropriate location. I also added a fuel line from the fuel pump to the carberator. Fuel line was made from #30 gauge stripped wire.

I scratched up a few cowls this morning! First time ever doing this. In my opinion the car looks better with them, but Im wondering what others think? Below are some pictures of the new cowls.

Finally here is the body painted in Royal Blue. Definitely not finished, Im contemplating wether or not to cut the doors? Please all comments and ideas are welcomed and encouraged. Thank you for looking and stay tuned for more updates! Also added some other random pictures of this build.

Looks good. I love this kit! I would leave the doors alone. That's a step you usually do before paint
