Some AWESOME work there buddy, is the exhaust solder too?? or tube??
The rim idea is what i want a lathe for, so many wheels, but all skinny.
That engine looks great with black instead of chrome, VERY TOUGH!!!!!

Thanks mate, the exhaust pipes are actually solid aluminium welding rod 3.2mm, annealed with the oxy then bent and polished.
Yep hate skinny rims, if you're gonna use 23's they need to be wider than 12mm, why do they do that? I now order two sets of tyres to make wider rears and leaving the standard Pegasus rims for the fronts.
Been remastering a disc rotor to suit Pegasus rims too, just waiting for more silicone and resin to arrive and I'll start banging some out.
The master.....


I think the black blower and rockers give it a more modern drag look than chrome. BTW the crap looking chrome on the pullys was my $h!t attempt at black chrome and I'm still deciding whether to BMF the window trims or do them satin black, the bumpers will be black but still thinking about the trims?

Been a few days since I updated this one so here's where I'm up to. I remade the diff 4 link brackets so the shockers fit better, made coil over shocks on the lathe, got the disc rotors cast, cleaned up & painted and I've started painting the interior. The instruments are all hand painted, not decals. It still needs silver trim details and carpet.

Got this one back on the bench, trying to get it ready for October comp.
Got the interior done and mocking up the rear end now, also started on the grille. I drilled the solid headlight lens's out and I'm making clear rod replacements. The next big thing is to do the front end.

Thanks Al, but the paint demons have struck.....
Gave the firewall/inner fender assy a final squirt of colour last night and not ten minutes later knocked it onto the carpet ... into all the pet hair and crap etc. ..... back into the stripper she goes.

One step forward, two steps back ....
