I also cleaned up the body and added wheel flares to the rear because the wheel wells were all cut up.

You should put a Moon gas tank on the front of the chassis

Great idea, i do have a couple of those. The only bad thing is a Moon tank won't hide the nut on the guide flag like a fuel cell does. I'll try to fab somthing up. I'm also up in the air as what to do about the rear spoiler. I still have the original one but it could look more aggressive. Suggestions welcomed!

Maybe make it look like a Pro-street type wing.. Or maybe just make it a lip, like a cuda wing.

I found a spoiler! It's off a widebody Vette, and turned backward. I have to fabricate the center piece because the piece off the Vette isn't long enough.
