Quick progress shot ... with a limited amount of time my builds come together slowly.  

Still have some chassis work to do (shocks, traction bars, maybe wire the fuel system) to the work already done (lengthened 5mm, spare tire well removed, mini tubbed).  

Some progress on the engine with a spruce distributor center drilled with radio shack wire installed (I never can get those 9 holes drilled in the darn thing).  Looms made from thinned scrap plastic.  Parts box valve cover and timing chain cover.

Getting closer ... however, body did want to sit square on the cobbled frame and interior (I believe it has dash-putty from the roof interference.   I'll live with it for a fun-shelf build.

Thanks for all the comments and encouragement. Turning my attention to the hood (saved it to the end so I can get an accurate opening.

Looking in the parts box I thought I try the the hood from the AMT 63 Corvette work ... Been cut to size here, fattened and widened. Time to throw some putty at it next.

Great job. I too reckon the roof looks like it belongs there.

Calling this one complete. A little rough, but an enjoyable build.

Very cool! The lighting really pops out the lustre of the body colour, just gorgeous.
