Very nice. I like that era of NASCAR better than any other. Your work is terrific. Thanks for sharing.
I married my wife for her looks, just not the ones she gives me when I bring home new model kits.

Great work! I found it actually easier in the long run to replace the windows from sheet plastic. Question: how does the hood fit after you bent the front fenders down? My finished Pearson model doesnt have the fender correction and It's killing me. I would like to make that modification. I also put a new apron in that follows the contour of the front hoop. I wonder if correcting the fenders will screw up those refinements. Thanks, Glenn. Glenn Conigliaro

You don't have to replace the inner fenders if you just insert a nice pie cut right where the top of the wheel arch is - bend the fender down and fill the cut - it doesn't have to be a big cut - just enough to allow the fender to smooth out.

Another tip about that car - use AMT (not the new ones) Stock car tires. They fill the wheelwells and fenderwells and drop right in.
REALLY makes a difference in the car and its stance.
