Man, I can practically see how bad ass these cars are going to be when they are done.


How are the 3.5 motors going to be set up? Carbs? Twin plug too I would guess?

I used 930 flares for the rear, that i got from SSF. They will be re-profiled a bit to RSR style. The fronts are RSR flares that I got from AASE

Massaging the original bumper into an RSR bumper. I'm not a big fan of fiberglass.

Was up to see Jon again today, his metal work is fantastic and he's an incredibly nice guy also.

I can't wait to see these when they are done!!

I like the no fiberglass choice. Bodywork is looking pretty good so far! As far as color - what type of unique color choice are you thinking? Something more vibrant like the viper green or golf blue you mentioned or maybe something more muted? What are you thinking for interior?

Wow. You REALLY hate fibreglass
Do you plan something similar for a steel ducktail?
Looking awesome, great work.

Jeff.

Colors are still up in the air. Seat will either be tartan or houndstooth.

Very nice. Does someone make an aluminium duck tail or are you guys fabricating it? I am keen to see the results either way. Watching with interest.
