I love the colour combo on this. And the chop and modification work are just excellent.
Great stuff again.

thanks guys, painted the headliner, installed glass, visors int mirror etc etc last night and installed floor/chassis for the last time. Couple things to note if you're gonna lower one of these... The frame rail behind/above the diff has to be modified to clear the pumpkin , the floor plate gets wider at final fitting and you're sure the bodys gonna snap before it fits in place and thirdly the front brakes push the wheels out hard against the body but removing anything means taking the chassis out again, so I'll live with it this time cause I aint fitting that again. Oh also you have to aling the exhaust manifolds exactly or the keep breaking off and I at least cant fit them while the engines in place, that said




still have headlights, bumpers ,grille, battery and side mirrors to go, also wanting to put the custom exhaust pipes from the revell merc on somehow

Way cool, I'm surprised it doesn't at least have slicks, kinda hard to imagine you not having some kind of competition influence in one of your builds. Wink
