    Thanks Cowboy! I might have to order one now.

    I have now made door panels. Little more putty and sanding and the interior styrene work is done. Next I'll focus on the front and get it tilting.

    Not much to show. The dummy engine has now a distributor and some mock up wiring.

    I've been working on my other projects. Trophy truck chassis is now painted. Also the Rammunition has seen some paint and needs more. But mainly I've been designing Bearfoot axles that I was asked to do.

    Not much has been done to this. Some more details in the dummy engine and a roll cage out of styrene round bar. I might redo it in brass or steel. We'll see.

    I like the engine I've been looking very hard for two good accurate velocity stacks for the retro build that I have been progressing on.

    I wasn't quite happy with the looks of the wire steering so I redesigned and rebuilt it. Now it's cleaner and I like it more. Next I'll mount the body more securely to the chassis and cut the front.

    Looking good!!! I used a hobby saw to cut the hood on my retro recently and it turned out perfect.

    That's what I think I'll use too. Thought of using dremel but that might end up in a disaster.

    Next I'll need to figure out something to hold it down. Magnets maybe.
