MarkJ,

A beautiful build of a not-often-seen subject! Your additional detailing, paint and decal work are outstanding! Can you give a short explanation as to how you "tucked-in" that rear bumper? Was it just a matter of trimming away some of the plastic at the very rear of the rear fenders?

Oh... some engine bay and chassis photos would be great to see as well!

I glued the hood shut because I had no ref pics of the real engine. If you go to my photobucket you can see some in progress shots. The model comes as a 74 and I had to change it to a 1975

Yes on the alclad. The wheels and tires are ppp. the tires and wheels that come in the kit dont look anything like they actually used.

Thanks Niko, I had to do a lot of body mods to get it right. The one in the box is a 74 Chevelle. I had to change the wheel openings and the rear quarter and rear end panels to make it look like a 75 which is the one he drove to his first cup win at Nashville.
