all the old fords were the same bolt pattern, you could ditch the straight six for a 400m and use the same four speed. or bolt in a 460 in front of your beefeed up C6. im getting ready to scrap the weak 351M for a 400M and maybe a four speed if the guy gives me a deal fo my 78 f-150 4x4. but i cant wait to see your build finished i love them old dents!!!!

I know there not perfectly straight, but thats the best i can do without melting the plastic with the scroll saw. Plus, Im adding a layer to the outside to add some detail.

Cheers,

Okay, back to the build!

Alright, so on the Body. I got the oven-bake clay for my body panel sculpts (yay!), so there should be some progress there.

As for the chassis, i have a question. How wide is the Axial axle vs. the TLT axle? I need to know from about middle of the tire to middle of the tire.

Once again, progress will be slow since Im helping my friend get his 1970 Ford Falcon running...again.

Cheers,
-John-

Its made out of 1/4in Styrene, it should... hopefully.

Nothings changed from the last update, yeah yeah i know "Get to work, i want to see this done!!". Ive been spending most of my freetime with my girlfriend, I enjoyed it until she forced me to watch Twilight .

You probably wont see me for the rest of this week and next week, Hardee's is gonna be swamped with 4th of July traffic and I get to be cashier! Fun...

Cheers,
-John
