well, this thing had been on the bench since '03.... so, rather than put it up[stored away never to be seen!!], what the hay, i'll just finish it!!!! no more detail, nuthin, just finish it!! this kit had given me problems from the git-go...while doing the 1st body/chassis mock-up for the rear suspenion build, i didn't know i had the body a little to far forward...DOOHHHH!!! now the wheelbase was wrong[i thought] so... i re-located the axle forward about a 1/16"....DOOHHH! as i'm assembling the chassis and running gear, i notice the wheels don't really fit the wheelwells....[this is when i found out about the body placement..]so........then, the SOHC Ford kit motor had little to no detail,.so........ while i was building the Boss429, i noticed how similar in size the 429 was to the SOHC, hhhmmmm... got the motor!! so, except for the 429 motor, it's bassicly OTB.....
