This started out about a year ago as part of a small group build. I am back on it now and thought I would post my progress up here.








Worked on the frame today.

The 'chrome' step is done on the frame, next will be a heavy black wash.

Thanks Mike

I am going with a fantasy motor. It started as a 440 Mopar. I am going to mod the tunnel ram so the intake runners are not the siamese style, going for a Ford style. I think I am going to use BBC valve covers and tweak them a bit. Using Ford FE headers from a Gibson resin motor. The last pic is the style of tunnel ram I want to replicate.

Nice clean chop !!
Like the intake.
Really kinda wondering what you had to cannibalize to get all of those gears. I like that idea on the frame! Going hi-boy, I take it?
Cheers,
Clay


Thanks Clay,

I got the gears from evil bay. Old watch parts.

Clay: Hobby Lobby here in Utah has bags of watch parts in the bead section. You might want to take a look there.

Really unique Curt. I'm filing that under "steal that idea one of these days."

Cheers guys for looking in on the progress and for the kind words.

Stance/mock up shot. I will be changing the front wheels for sure perhaps the rear as well.

Missed that bit Curt. Grovelling apology for not paying attention!

I hope you can find it in your heart to forgive me.

Thanks Kats.

Worked building up the windshield frame and making it into a split window. Also messing around with wheel ideas and carriage on with the gear theme.
