I have an O/S Fairlane body that I am mounting. It is not as long as other bodies approved for the Stock Car class.

Can someone please speak on the front guide flag rule as it pertains to this particular body.

The guide seems to stick out of the front a bit more than other bodies.

Thanks,

 

Mikey

As long as your guide lead is no longer than 3/4" max, and the front tires are centered in the wheel wells, you are fine.

I once cut out "chin spoiler flap" from the bottom of the bumper bent outward and forward (as was the convention back in the late '60s) that went forward over the guide flag to hide in on the O/S Fairlane body. It looked OK but might not have been exactly legal.

 

If you don't do this, you will need to cut out a clearance in the lower bumper center for the guide flag and the guide flag will stick out. Mike says this is OK for the Fairlane body and I believe him. It is a gorgeous body with most of the lines exactly matching the AMT model kit, best I can tell, except for the wheel flares.

Here is the rule:
 
2f. The full bumper must remain intact except for trimming to provide clearance for the guide flag. Bodies such as the O/S Daytona must have the front spoiler left fully intact.
