Thanks for the replies guys. Yeah I need to do a better job of organizing my stuff so that doesn't happen again. Right now my hobby room has all of the stuff from my bathroom thats getting the renovation in it so organization in that room right now is NOT happening. lol.

It's been a while since I've posted an update so I thought I'd give one here. The chassis and proper stance has been the topic of building over the course of the last couple of weeks. One of the things that surprised me was the Fords use of red oxide primer on the bottom side of these cars. Never saw any of that on any of mine but hey....by the time I got those cars it was a good 25 years on down the line. lol

Just an FYI. I did end up getting ahold of Round 2 and asking for the proper Wide Oval white lettered tires. I talked to what sounded like a kid on the phone and it didn't appear that he knew too awful much about the product but was willing to help out. We'll see what I get in the mail.

Chassis in progress without the exhaust on just yet:

Speaking of exhaust systems, I'll be starting on that next so I can get the chassis part of this build behind me. One thing I notice alot of times on the bottom side of completed auto builds is the presence of seams on the exhaust pipes. These tend to be overlooked by some modelers so I thought I'd point these seams out on the exhaust pipes in this kit.

This is freshly cut from the sprue so you can still see the sprue attachment point but check out those nasty seams on the exhaust pipes. Those......will be disappearing soon. More updates coming over the next few days on this subject.....

Wow Joe that looks sharp. When the underside looks that good it's a sign of what the rest will look like! :shoutout:
Thanks,
John

Thanks you guys. Been working on that exhaust this morning cleaning it all up. Took the better part of an hour to get most of it done but still have to contend with the joint seam on the muffler.

Aside from that I built my 750 Holley Double Pumper over the weekend and installed it on my truck .

but WAIT......what's that on the front fuel bowl???

A 3-D printed Holley carburetor from Shapeways......The details are CRAZY on this thing!!!

Image

It's even got stand alone venturis...... :shocked:

Looks awesome! I had a Holley Street Avenger double pumper on my 79 Camero way better than the qudrojunk it came with.

Looks the part alright! How long before someone starts printing out double pumpers with linkages for the secondaries and choke pull off ect...
