Posted (edited) · Report post

Y'all have already seen the Chevy six and a mock up of the short rail I'm building so here's an update.

I got the motor bolted in place and the rolling chassis done. Also got the fuel injection / headers done.

Decided a diaphram fuel pump just wouldn't cut it so I made a high volume, belt driven one out of old kit parts.

Looks great! Nice detail work on that engine.

This is based on the Lindberg "Exterminator", right? Small world...I'm working on the very same kit myself (I posted some photos in "On the Workbench" a week or two ago).

After several major paint screw up's I painted it flat cast grey to match the frame.

A few more details and she's done.
