I got the car cheap, less then a 1/10 scale drag chassis kit costs.

Got the body over the weekend! Needs to be made a little shorter, but it's all good!

After looking it all over, I just did not see how the front end was going to fit how I wanted it to. The body would need to have an unrealistic front overhang, so I decided to shorten it from the front. I made a template for the front a-arms and steering linkage, and traced it on the body., I also made my cuts for the nose.

First time the body has rested on the chassis!!

Here is a rough mock up of how I am going to approach the front end. At this point, it has been shortened 7.5" and still has some more to go, but it's headed in the right direction.

Nose Update--

I did some final measuring, and final cuts, and in total the body is about 10 inches shorter then when I got it. It is coming along very good, better then I expected so far.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

I made fiberglass strips out of some leftover body pieces for the inside, both to bridge the gap in the nose, and to attatch the 2 nose parts to the body itself.

Here is the nose as of now, I need to make an endcap for the nose under the wing, and then bondo up the seams. Then sand, sand, sand.... :mrgreen: I also taped on a possible front wing spill plate design just for looks.

I made some good progress on the nose. Shot it with some primer tonight for a better look. Not too bad but still some more work to go.

I'm not 100% sure yet. I was thinking an old school Joe Amato. (Not Valvoline, that's been done.)
