Interior shot. Not much there ...seat....steering wheel.....brake lever. What else do you need?

The frame was tweeked a bit ( the drivers side wheel "hovered" about a scale foot of the ground. The following pict. show the straightened frame and  the front suspension completed.

After I assembled and installed the blower I realised it was a tad too big. (A different scale?) so I switched to the kits injector stacks.

I also wired the spark  plugs.

This is my second attempt. I originally used a scale diameter wire that looked like crap so I did it again. I drilled out the spark plug holes and glued the wire from the inside. The kits distributor was'nt going to work for this so I used a piece of Evergreen tubeing to pull the wires through to get the propper sag.

This was my first attempt at painting the fuel tank.I decaled it ( Moon-Eyes of course) and masked it so I could paint the straps silver. Well..... the paint bled under the tape ! GGGRRRRRRR!!!!!  So I stripped it.

Not taking any chances this time ! First tank to survive paint wins!

And heres the winner.

I also added some Chrome trim to the firewall.

Im undecided if I should Chrome any other trim. I'm open to suggestions.

Also not sure if I will use the driver figure ... but here he is.

I still need to do a wash or two on him .

And dig that 60's safety gear..... gloves and boots ... thats it!

Dont worry about the thumb print.... paint it rust and call it battle damage

A headless driver you say???? That wont work.

Just started on his head. I also thought his shirt needed something so I came up with what I hope is a  period correct logo.

I just LOVE how everything is in focus EXEPT the driver! Sorry.

The kit didnt come with a fuel pump so I made my own out of bits in my junkyard.

I also decalled the tank and clear-coted it. Now lets hope I can pull off the silver tank straps this time.

Sorry things are so out of focus.....apparently a $25 camera is a wast of money.
