New year, new project. This one I picked up a Couple of years ago And finally decided to dig it out and get started on it. Im building it box stock, I dont know how acurate it is to the actual 1/1 but I'll give it my best shot. The body seems to need a lot of cleaning up and rescribing of most panel lines and also removing Emblems ect.. First I will start with cleaning up the chassis and the Fi rewall Everything I marked with the Black marker.

IM also drilling the Weber carburetors before starting the painting process, and also thinking of adding ignition wires. I dont intend to finish this kit soon, just hope I can finish it before this year is over. If anybody built this kit or has some tips or criticism please post. Thank you.

Nice work so far. This kit may seem a little rough by today's standards, but was one of my favorites back in the day. Good looking engine in this kit, too.
