Thanks Ray. You really are grabbing this bull by the horns. I can't express how much I appreciate it!

Thanks Pablo, :victory:

 

 

I also re-ordered a decal set from Indycal and will clean and better the body.

Now that I have Micro-Sol and Micro-Set I should be able to do a much better job with the decals.

Also re-soldered the pinion to the motor and hope that it never gets the silly idea of coming loose again  :crazy:

 

 

Just need to source some new tires and finish her up and she is ready to go!



Bob,

That is a nice entry list.

1 out of 10 chance I won't be last...lol

MAJOR Announcement.

 

Race Date Change - Sept. 20th at 4 PM

 

 Reason: Due to Kenny Snodgrass having a scheduling conflict with bringing the next one of his 100 point 55-57s Chevys to Barrett-Jackson in Vegas on Sept. 27th.

Here is the last one sold at Barrett-Jackson by Snodgrass Restorations.

Rick Hendrick buys a bunch of them from Kenny and Dave.
