Added a few things, started working on a small cowl in front of the cage also the
cage looked like it was missing something so we added a small headrest to it.

Image
Image

Gathering up some parts to try out and see what works.

Image

Have a couple sets of injectors to try and found a head for the driver, his body came from the
same car that supplied the tail piece and the other parts from some other cars in the junk box. As with most
things in HO, parts either have to fabed or swiped from other cars.

Image

Planning to use these wheels on the car, they are Road Race Replica wheels. I usually
use stock wheels, but I think these will look better than the Turbines on the finished car
and they are chrome. We'll save the other ones for something else.

All for now

I am still in awe of the amount of detail you pack into such a small car.

Nice work Kevin.

Started working on the roof for the little Super Mod. While looking around, thinking I may have to scratch build
one, ran into an unlikley donor. Found an old Peterbuilt truck in the parts box and borrowed the roof from it.

Image

After cutting the roof off, fitted it up and cut the back window out.

Image

Worked out well and attached it to the body after filling the holes the the pipes went into. Still in the drying process
and will add filler as it drys and shrinks.

Image
Image

The roof gives the right effect to the body for this style car. We'll sand this first pass of filler and proceed
from there. It's coming along little by little.

All for now

Kevin

Got back to working on the Super Mod this morning. Cut a hole for some injectors in the hood.
Centered the injectors and traced around the out side. Then flipped them over and traced
around the stack portion to get a guide line. With the body on the frame for support, drilled
some holes to open up the hood.

Image

After some file work and some test fitting, wound up with a hole that the stacks would fit through
and left the bottom of the stacks to mount under the hood.

Image

Now we have a set of injectors that just stick through the hood, but not higher than the little cowl
piece in front of the cock pit. A nice peaceful morning with coffee and the radio.

All for now

After getting past some real life issues, finally had a chance to work on the car.
Started on making some bumpers for the car.

Image

Started by making a couple of small u-bends. These will then be attached to the frame.

Image

These will extend the frame and act as an attachment point for the rest of the bumper.
Still a long way to go but getting back into the swing after being away for awhile.

All for now

Thanks for the kind words.

Image

The u-bends are intalled and part of the bumper. Holes were drilled in thr rear of the frame and the u-bends
fitted into the holes. After drying they were sanded up and the first part of the bumper was attached
to the u-bends.

Image
Image

With the body on, there is a little room to work with and a couple more bars will be added to form the bumper.
These will be placed above and below the center bar to fill the space in the middle.

Image

Car is starting to shape up and once the rear is done, we can move to the front.

All for now

Kevin

Finished the rear bumper. Two bars mounted to the center bar and the u-bends completes it.

Image
Image

These are all made from paper clips cut and ground to fit, they fit the scale well and are easy to work with.
Attached with super glue, since soldering is impossible cause of the size and the chassis being plastic.

Image

Bumper tucks up under the body just at the edge and fits the car well. A little more clean up and
we'll move on to the front and work on that.

All for now

Well the picture police have caught up with me.
I'm hoping to edit the thread as time permits and try to get back on track.
It's to bad a lot of good infomation on these threads has to go
to waste because of greed.

All for right now

Well I have spent the last few days editing this thread only becacuse it's a buid off thread.
Been using Imgur and it acts a lot like photo bucket as far as using the album part of it.
So far been happy with it. I would like to thank photo bucket for all the extra work
it has caused everybody that had used them and for screwing up a lot of the extra
if any build time many of us have. Ok enough rant, do have a couple more of the rear.

Image
Image

Maybe I can get back on track and catch up on the front over the week end.

All for now

Love the micro-soldering and creative kit bashing. A shame to hide that roll cage with the hard top though...
