Dave:

That paint is sweet. The wing resembles a comp. resin item?! I like the way it fits the body lines. I'm afraid to ask about the wheels; they look like rather expensive Micro Nitro ones. If you can get another hood, check out the variety of comp resin scoops. I'm pretty sure you can find something that will work. Just measure the size of the hole in the hood and match it up. Great work!

 I have always liked this kit. I can't remember where I got mine from but I thought it went together good.

I really need to get this one done. My goal this week and weekend is to complete this one  how she sits at the moment.

Working on the glass. Traced out my borders on the side glass before a free hand he rest with a brush.

Well. I proceeded to remove the body from the chassis and well, front end just disintegrated

What in the wide, wide world of sports happen ? Please DON'T give up now, get some thin wire and add pins to it, it was in pieces when you bought it, now just a couple of more pieces to add to it now.

It just sagged then snapped apart. Very strange because the bottom portion was molded to the chassis

Back at it. 

Was able to get the front end back on without to much of a hassle. Hopefully it it will stay together.

Rebuilding coming along. Had a tough time putting the engine back in very tight fit.  Had to take the headers off and a little shoving.
