Just finished this today for the 18th annual 24 Hr build. Widened the rear wheels, lowered the suspension, molded in different taillights, wired the engine, added rare earth magnets to hold the hood in place, altered the kit exhaust and added turned aluminum mufflers.
Airbrushed Testors "Colors by Boyds" (remember them?) Purple Pearl for the body and a custom mix of House of Kolor for the frame. A few aftermarket parts (MSD ignition box, Aluminum mufflers).

The Rat Fink decal was one that I had in a parts box that I inherited from my buddy, Mike Flynn.
A fun night of building and now I have another one for the shelf!

If you haven't done one of the 24 Hr builds, you should. They are a blast to see the variety of builds from many different entrants (think we were somewhere between 150-200 this year- most tied in over Zoom)

Later-

You did that in 24 hours?  Wow!

Yes. Started at Noon Saturday, took time out to nap from 4:30 AM to 7:00 AM. Got back on it at 7:30 and finished at 11:45 AM on Sunday. Makes me wonder what takes me so long on all of may other builds.

Later-
