I agree. Nice choice and fits the truck much better.

Correct (or close) tires seem to be one of the hardest to find with these builds, normal street tires are easy but these off road types are different. Front tires have also incorrect tread pattern but I'll leave them be.

Couple of mock up pics with bigger intake (scoop), it's now more to scale.

It certainly does, needs bit finishing touches still. Here's electric fan from Detail Master, it's photo etch item and looks really nice.

superb detail Tomi.
I now can see the detail on front tyres. It will do great

AMT's Shelby Cobra exhaust shaped roughly, they are perfect for this job as I didn't have to scratch build whole deal.


 










You can see the cuts I made with razor saw to bend headers, I also applied heat to them so that bending was easier.

Quick update, I decided that exhaust needs more "loose" look, so I replaced one of the bends with Evergreen plastic.

Looking at the original car pictures you have posted I think you did a really good job. They are very very close to that car. Looks like the exhaust was swapped from one side to the other to get the upsweep you wanted. Teh original application for the Shelby Cobra would be down and out, not up and out like you have. Great Work.

Small update, this time interior. This car has single go kart seat placed in the middle of cockpit, must be nice to drive when windscreen is small and there's massive blower blocking view Seat is carved from Nissan Skyline bucket seat, interior floor is just slab of plastic sheet with transmission/drive shaft tunnel.










Here's picture of real car interior, very spartan and rough

Not much progress during holidays, mainly some interior stuff. Due restricted view I'm going to keep things quite simple inside, all it needs now is shifter and roll bar. Door panels are modified from '53 Chevy parts and dash is '50 Chevy converted to RHD.

Real life always takes top billing. Thanks for touching base as I would like to see this one as it finishes up.
