thanks CM-113 and Old Busted Hotness!

got some more work done on the car. got the interior decking in place with a hole in back for an inspection panel/ fuel fill up door. then got it all shot with some primer. looks good sitting in primer. no more soot from the lighter and pencil marks.









whole chassis sits right at 8" long

Also got most of the body made and mocked up. im gonna start calling this car Satan after all the headaches it has caused.

got some more work done on this bad boy.



rear axle with link mounts and lift bar installed



hand grooved tires with chrome mud covers



front suspension installed. still need to make coilover shocks.


part of the motor painted and installed.



suspension will be glued in place to make it look as if it is 3 wheeling through a turn like the 1:1 cars do.

thanks guys!

ive got some more work done on this car. finally got the rear suspension glued in and the body was repainted and glued on. also got it to where it would balance itself so the left front tire was off the ground like it is going through a turn.
