Love how the body is hinged on the front bumper. That's really good thinking there! :auto-checkeredflag:

Wow, that is pretty. What kind of tubing or wire is that ? The shiny finish looks fantastic. :o If it was polished it was well worth the work.

BIG THANK YOU very much everyone...especially to Harry for making the pics available and for his efforts of this forum and supporting my addiction...(slot cars.) This forum and its members is without a doubt my greatest motivation and inspiration! As for the 1/32 sprint car...It was commissioned by Ed Miller of S&E slot car bodies. He asked if I could make him a scratch sprint car so with a modified Sprint Plus chassis, a few pieces of stainless steel tubing and rods along with the other necessary items and quite some time I finally delivered on his inquiry. Thanks again...
Tom

Awesome build! What did you use for the body parts i.e. (hood, panels, fuel cell etc.)? Dave
