Well ive got updates.

Got the aircleaner and it is installed.
Body is painted but not polished
chassis is finsihed.
Interior is being reconsidered.

And that about the jist of it.

For the interior I was thinking about leaving it stock until I started making the engine look better. Then I though about doing a custom/race interior. Im a little stuck on what to do since the roof line is so low in this car (is that just a model issue?). Im going to de a rear seat delete and a roll bar/cage. As for everything else Im stuck.

i just noticed the CBP on the Mustang II, and i have an old Mustang II Python kit lying around. ive already painted the car a chameleon color that changes 4 different colors, which looks great on the wide bodykit that comes with this car. Within the moves here, i somehow lost the wing that goes on the hatchback part, so ill scratcbuilt one for it. Ill build this car box stock (one of few ill do this way). Hope to have pics on this soon.

That's gone be nice......... Any idea what wheels? Are you using the kit's interior cause I was thinking it would be nice with stock interior. Does the kits have t-roof .

Just a little thing about your green mustang. It is beautiful but I noticed that the trim around headlight were green. Is it on purpose because on the real car they are chrome or blacktrim colour.
Just want to help with this

Great. Two more beauties in sight. The blue Cobra is nice.

Will get back to my KC project this coming week end.
Had to take a break. The situation became ''take a break or break it''

Pics are coming too

I know what you mean Mike.. I do that with my 1:1 Stang.......work on Stang....take a break (and a deep breath)...work on Stang....repeat.....Big Smile
Ken, That little Stang looks AWESUM!!!!!!
On my HotRod I cut out the goofy molded in spare tire in the back and put in sheet stock to make it flat.....might put in a subwoofer....Cool
Interior colors will be black & grey. And I am sticking with the kit 351.

Looks GREAT Ken!!!!! Nothing like having carbs reaching for the sky!!
My HodRod is getting there, I am making armrest from valve covers and going to use thin felt for the carpet in the interior. Instead of making a subwoofer in back, I am going to make 2 small chrome NOS tanks in the back.....351+ NOS = BYE BYE !!! Mischief
