I finally was able to drill the stock motor out using a dremel, caused a slight nick near the front hood area, and some ca glue on the pipe, besides that I am very happy with how this 1st one turned out. Swapped the stock motor for muscle machines blown, added rally wheels/tires from a JL Mustang and added some modified chrome exhaust pipes. I will modify another one shortly and also try my hand at stripping and painting. I enjoy Customs and would love some suggestions for future projects.Your comments are welcome on my 1st custom. Thanks, Howard

Very nice job for a first custom, keep up the good work. :thumbsup:

I do a lot of customs myself, keeping it simple, stripping off the tampoes with a non-acetone nail polish remover. Radical Decals has some awesome 1/64th scale decals at good prices, which I use a lot. Some red flames, or even some drag car sponsor decals would look awesome on the sides.

If you have any questions, don't hesistate to ask here. There are lots of great guys here to help with tips and and suggestions.
