well after over a year of sitting in limbo on the bench i finally and hopefully going to attempt to finish this build. it was originally meant for the strip, track and trail campaign last year.
so in order to stir up some motivation and to bring things up to speed i will post the photos of the build up to the point of stoppage plus a couple of current shots after i polished out the body.
some might remember but if not, this is a Fred Lorenzen 1960 starliner stock car. street kit converted to stock car with scratch built and modified kit parts, wired and plumed.
first a photo of the real car, posing with Fast Freddy
gutted interior and modified seat with added bolster and harness. i removed the rear seat but retained the package shelf as it has contours that match the body. filled in the missing floorboard where the rear seat was with sheet plastic.
