Mercury Comet Boss 429


Recommended Posts

Completing another of my unfinished models from 2011. Detailing the engine on this Comet Pro Stock. I tried something new, making upper shocks and mounts from crimp beads and aluminum rod. I still say these parts are a lot smaller than they were in 2011!

Very realistic.  What did you use for plug wires and “silicone” boots?  Did you make the super coil?  Hard to tell in the pic, but, did you flatten the aluminum rod (on the shock)?  Thanks, Ron.

Thanks, The boots are made from computer wire insulation and yes, thats why I used aluminum rod so it would be soft enough to flatten the ends.
