Edward, looks like you're off to a fantastic start. I think I'm going to follow this project.

Couple questions if ya don't mind:

1) What specific paint did you use on the engine?

2) Where did you get the alternator bracket?

Hope to see more pics soon!

the alternator bracket i just cut out from some brass sheet.

color on the engine is Nissan Orange Mist from a duplicolor spray can, i thought it was a pretty close match to some internet photos

Real NICE Edward!! color looks pretty darn close to the pic. :) Now a little ditty from my childhood, "pinto beans good for your heart, the more you eat the more you fart, the more you fart the better you feel, so eat pinto beans at every meal" It just felt appropriate, I couldn't resist! :lol:

thank you!

I managed to finish the chassis. I painted the floor pan in body color to add some life to the underside.

will start on the interior parts next.

thanks

I just do some dry brushing with a grey color.. this kit has really nice parts but the detail would be lost in the black paint if you don't highlight the edges. also a few washes of black on the floor pan

if you want to know anything in specific just ask!

thanks for lookin

Does this kit come with poseable steering or did you do some modifications?

For the steering, I just didn't glue the spindle to the control arms it fits snug in between and is then moveable
