nice job. is that the final paint. if not i found a nice place to get really nood paint. advanced auto parts has small cans of spray paint. all diffent colors, and stlys.i did a few of my bodys with it and they turned out looking like a really car. just make sure you put some clear coat on, to bring out that shine. you should check out my rebuild car. i'm trying to build about what you did, just i think mine is alittle smaller, but still gas powered. and i think i'm going with chain drive.

KENDOG689,
I'm in the process on drill out the orignal grill work of this fiberglass body. It's a really time consuming project,also working in changing out the head lights. KENDOG689 what parts you need information on ? I'll send some photos tomorrow on front end progress.

Awesome looking project. Is the drive line all custom made or is it something you can buy?

redhotchevy , Man i'm sorry to hear your 1930 Hotrod Pickup got stolen, now that's some real BULL S***!!!. On the other hand i purchased my 55 chevy from EBAY. Just search 1/4 scale bodies an you would discover all different styles of bodies available.
