OK guys, I put a lot of time in on this one. The body is a dash super mod as are the pipes. The front grill, front wheels,engine and the windshield came fron various die cast. The rear wheels are from a four gear. It took 2 coats of silver, 5 coats of candy apple red and a couple coats of future. I might have to touch up the red around the pipes. I didn't notice it until I saw the pictures. I'm really happy with this one.

That is cool as heck hojoe!! You did a great job getting the engine and radiator shell put together!! :thumbsup::thumbsup: SWEET!!!

Just a hint to help you out on your customizing journey in life, it's always easier to drill all your holes before you paint. This way, the paint goes into the holes and makes for a cleaner assembly. I figured this trick out doing head lights.. It helps eliminate the touch ups. Nice job!!!

love hot rods...Candy Red = Perfect color!!!

hojoe,

Nice looking hot rod & noticed the springs up front. That is a nice trick I use also to keep some front rims away from the pickups for REAL RUNNING fun.

Cool Hot Rod HoJo!!! I likes that color matching scoop :thumbsup::thumbsup: How does that coiled front end handle??? RM
yeah that matched scoop is Trick Pony!

Bob...the detail on this is Primo...zilla

Thanks for the kudos guys. It was a really fun build and it runs pretty smooth. The front axel springs keep the front wheels centered. And those wide slicks on the back really help it zip along. Happy Motoring!

Hey Joez, That blue rod is a real looker. It makes me want to search out a roof and build another one.
