  • ok, i started this on another thread (trucks) and thought as this is a pro street, it should be here. i'll post a few pics to give you an idea on the project, but you can look under the other thread to catch up. steve

  • got the fuel tank installed from the AMT Pro 57 chevy with a turned fuel cap, braces from scrap photo etch material. there is also a turn nitros bottle with scratch built hardware. i made the transmission linkage from a piece of chemiwood and linkage from the revell thames panel. i also used the kit battery box and a second one to house the electrics. thanks for looking. steve

  • i almost forgot to install the throttle cable into the engine, ooops! thankfully i managed to do it without too much trouble. i scratchbuilt brackets for each seat, basically long steel pins bent to shape and formed pieces of scrap etched material. the next job will be the harnesses and finishing off the detail master steering column. the gas and brake pedals will be installed after the body goes on to the chassis. comments are welcome. thanks for looking. steve

  • thanks for the comments guys keep 'em coming. the harness is by hobby design and uses soft photo etched material for the belts. i didn't use this but used oxide tape instead. i fixed the belts with r b motion bolts. i also scratchbuilt a centre console and started to make the ally panels for the doors from sheet pewter. steve

  • cheers. i did think of using a jimmy flintstone body, chopped of course, but i had already started on the body a few years back. i had to go on a hunt for some decals, and i managed to find ones for the belts from the street fighter kit. i also found a few others from different kits, although i couldn't find one for the Nos bottle, that was hand painted. steve
