  1. Can't believe it's been 3 months since I've touched it.
  2. Well gang....I made some progress on this thing this weekend. Managed to get the seat drilled and slotted to make way for the seat belt harness. The harness build up wasn't too bad outside of me not paying attention to what I was doing at times and having to go back and make some corrections along the way. This is not the period correct harness I was hoping to build but the correct one is actually harder than the Liberty shifter that I just built for this car. I'm not about to go through anything like that again on this build. lol
  3. This is gonna be one crisp ass build right here!! Awesome!!!
  4. You're definitely not overlooking any of the details on this one Kevin. Looking great man.
  5. I've lost count of how many times I've had the engine assemblies out of these cars, whether it be the 3800 V-6, LT-1 or LS-1. And you're right about those distributors.......a real treat.
  6. Thanks Chris and man are you ever right about being tough to work on. Seems like all the F bodies of the mid 90's to 2002 were a pain in the neck to work on. Ever had the engine out of one? All of it comes out the bottom. Case in point.....
  7. I didn't really like 'em all that much when they first came out but they're growing on me.
  8. This one's comin' back to the forefront of my bench now........
  9. The closest thing you'll find is the new Tamiya Mustang GT4 kit. Friggin' terribly awesome kit.
  10. I hear ya. I'd get ahold of one of those things pretty quick. GT-40 kits of ANY kind are getting more and more pricey every day.
  11. Thanks Kevin. Oh you got one of those new Tamiya GT-40 kits?? I've heard alot of good things about those and they look GREAT built up. I would REALLY like to get my hands on an old Fujimi GT-40 kit where I don't have to saw off my left arm as payment for it.
  12. Ok gang...... This is my first real out of box build. I had been working on a Pro Stock Maverick for around 5 months and needed a break from it to just get something completed. I've been wanting to build this car for the last few years and figured that now might be a good time to break it out. There's not much in the way of AM for this kit so it was the perfect one to do an OOB build on. The only things that were added was an "AC Delco" decal on the oil filter, a Hot Rod Magazine in the passengers from seat with a picture of an older T/A on the cover and I robbed the dual outlet exhaust pipes from the Revell 2000 Camaro SS kit. Just couldn't build this car with the single outlet exhaust system like it came from the factory with. The kit wasn't too bad but there were several fit issues with it starting with the chassis to body assembly. For some reason the glue adhesion didn't set up right at the rear of the car resulting in a slight twist. I made some bracing that went from the body down to the chassis and glued that in place to suck the chassis up on the side that got the lower part of the twist. Flash and mold lines were TERRIBLE on this thing. I spent ALOT of time getting rid of those and still didn't get them all. The front and rear facias fit great during the test fit and didn't want to cooperate at all during the assembly process. I got them as close as I could without disassembling the whole friggin' car to straighten everything out. Once I got the chassis sucked up in the back on the drivers side to where it was supposed to be I noticed that now there was a gap between the engine throttle body and the molded in intake duct on the body. I ended up cutting a piece of plastic and carving it to fit the gap there. The only other thing that I did with this car that needed to be done was that I lowered it about a scale inch or so all the way around to give it a more aggressive stance. Anyways....here are the finished shots...….and now....back to the Maverick!!!
  13. Daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaang!!! You're in a whole different league than me bud. Un flippin' believable!!!!
  14. I really like those old Bandai Armor kits. I built up the 1/48 scale BMW R75 w/ Side car model from them and had a really good time with it. This build turned out freekin' AWESOME!!!!!
