I see you used the stock chassis. how did you get the wheels tucked up under the fenders? Really nice by the way.

Interesting you ask that. I spent an entire evening bulging the fenders and qtrs out on this thing. Yet you can barely see it in pictures. I heated and rolled a knife handle behind them to do it. Then I used the frt of the PPP wheels and the kit wheel backs. I sanded the wheel backs thinner so they would sit further in the tires. Here’s the real car showing how the wtrs and fenders bulge out slightly.
