It’s been a minute since I’ve even looked at this one, but Rennsport week has reinvigorated me. I think the stance is about set on this finally, as well as most of the bodywork. Still needs some rally lights on the front and I have a spare for the roof, so I guess it needs a rack. I’ve just been so undecided on livery. I was thinking about doing Rothmans, but its too gritty for that I think, with the V8 and all. I may just sand it and give it a coat of white or silver to resemble a test car? I dunno, ideas welcome.
Right now, I’m really liking the height. I just got these wheels from a greenlight wrangler and they’re perfect. Not too wide or large IMHO. They still aren’t attached to the axles yet so they may be more inset/outset that the final in these pics.
Also the body isn’t attached (nor will it probably ever be, so the gaps aren’t adjusted yet. This has been pretty much a scratch build since I use only the center of the base and the FR and RR are new.
The inside is basically a NASCAR that the engine is borrowed from. Good pieces from the HW 100% NASCARs BTW! The rear cage is just bent axle tubing and JBweld. It needs more sanding if I ever want to be able to show it off. I desperately want to finish this beast. Exhausts have been made too but aren’t attached yet. Taking these shots helped me get a list of what needs done to cross this off my list.
