Hey guys just a quick update...After completing a 12hr shift I got home this morning and couldn't sleep. So what better time but to play with styrene.

I did some work on the front suspension the main arm is a Parts Box (Wild Drop) the leaf spring is otb and the links and spring clamp plates are scratch built. I removed the Parts Box leaf spring from the main arm as it was to flimsy... I just need to add the clamps for the spring

Thanks for looking

After trial fitting the front suspension it was sitting way too high so I had to Z Notch the chassis right in front of the cab to drop the front more....I'm happy!

Well I haven't done a great deal in the past week...my mind is going 100 miles an hour topgear  since I have kick started the creative juices..too many other projects away from the bench!

So I have had a crack at designing my own engine mounts to cradle the Nailhead donk and this is what I have come up with.

The Mounts...


On the chassis just needs some weld seams and cleaning up...


Holding the ponies....



A sneak peek with the grille...mock up

Hey guys just a quick one I am contemplating whether to stick with the Nailhead or a Buick Straight 8 like the pic below for the 37...



Your opinions will be greatly appreciated!
