Very cool Ron, can't wait to see the core support vacu formed, it'll be neat. Tranny hump is nice too! Is the V8 the one from Trini? Looks awesome with all the details added, air filter looks very good.

Edit: and I like the idea of the 4 wire cable used for the plug wires look all nicely tucked since they are actually attached together and you just pull apart the lenght you want. Just need a small wire glued around it to make it look like plug wire spacer/brackets thingy (you know the ones you make with tie wraps on 1:1)

Not much people around today! I had to refresh the Spy page a couple times, I tought it froze, there was only 3 posts in the spy list! Seems like there was only 3 posts in the last 24 hours at that time.

V8 is a Trini creation.. Supper awesome quality and correct details.
Love them I do.

As for the forums... Breaks my heart to see it so slow myself..
5 members this morning logged on. 435 Quests.
What has happened to our little community ? I've lurked a lot myself lately and have went back and re read of a few of my favorite threads to keep the inspiration flowing.
Sure hope it picks up some more once the white stuff and chill hits the ground.
I need to learn more methods and find new Ideas from the threads.

Holey moley!! That's a great idea! But it's got a flaw....you missed one of the ribs on the bigger side....would be a simple matter to adjust the buck and do another vacuum pull to correct it....you can go ahead and send me the faulty one....not much Chevy ppl in my neck o' the woods so they won't notice that....

Awesome work bud! Keep it up...I'm feeling the inspiration coming back to start working on the Sandman again....! It's been awfully quiet these last few weeks...been wondering what's happening to everyone...

Man...I love that receiver box! It came out awesome!

The engine bay looks awesome, really liking the way the inner fenders turned out! Will you have enough room for the steering servo? That is a TF2 frame right?
