A lot of exacting work there.  Very nice job.  Pic of interior?  The wheels are unfamiliar to me.  The trans appears to be a th2004r and not the th200 that most use.  The wheelie bar is scratch built?  

Thanks Ron, I'll try to get a shot of the interior but my photo ability/equipment is limited. The wheels are from Machined Aluminum Specialties (MAS). I was unable to find a TH200 so I used the resin piece you see, in hindsight a TH350 or PG would have been a better choice. Yes the wheelie bar is scratch built, it's based on the ones made by Ken Keir Race Cars.  Thanks again I appreciate it.

OK Ron took some interior pics, not the best shots for sure.

As a Stock Eliminator racer myself, I have to appreciate the work you've done to build an accurate race car. The amount of modifications required when building one of these is pretty big but you pulled it off very nicely. Great work!

WELL DONE! As a fanatical Stock Eliminator fan, I`m glad to see modelers paying attention to this race car category. A lot of people don`t understand how complicated and sophisticated these cars actually are. Most people think it`s nothing more than "bracket racing". I can assure you it`s not! Check it out at the next NHRA race that you attend. Sorry for the rant, I love your model!

Once again, very impressive work and thanks for the pictures.  Much appreciated.  I have to ask, what did you use for the tach and ignition box wiring and the connectors?  Did you make your own decals and is each one separate?  

Ron those wires are Detail Master .0075, the connectors on the EFI controller and on some other components are made by Top Studio. I don't remember where I got them from but I attached a picture of the package for you. The decals are a mostly from Slixx and a few kit decals and yes they are all separate. Also I will once again thank you.

Barry, Stock & Super Stock are the only classes I'm interested in and living in Division 1 I'm able to catch what I feel are some of the best cars in those classes. As far as modeling it's also pretty much what I build. Thanks for your post I do appreciate it.

Oh man,Wow,the interior of this car is fantastic.I mean the whole car came out great.But the interior is awesome.Where did you get that tach?.

Ron the tach came from one of the Revell pro stock/pro mod kits. I added a Slixx decal face and made a bezel from aluminium tubing. The shift light is just a piece of styrene rod. Thanks again and Happy Thanksgiving.
