Bigdad, here's a really rough one, but I've seen others with the "cutouts", in the doors. I'll post more when I find them. I never liked the cut out, but it was done to the real race cars, I don't know exactly why either. But I still love your model, keep up the great work, can't wait to see the finished product.

Well I should be able to get back to work on the car know my last purchase of a couple of bucket seats from e-bay will be here today. I was going to try to cut up the bench seat and use it but it just does not like right, plus I have that cool looking photoetch 5 point racing seat belt now. I have been holding off starting the roll cage until I have the seat. I'm having second thoughts about converting the pickup into a car hauler too. The 1/25 scale semi truck tires would work but the wheels look totally wrong, I may just get a trailer for the race car and do a kinda rusty old rat rod look on the truck.

.....this build has given me some inspiration for my own project.....I bought an old GMP Sprint Car Kit,and because I was having problems deciding what to paint my 1:1 car ... I thought if I could paint the model ,I may be on to something......I decided on Audi Amulet Red as a base,but haven't decided on a contrast colour.....the model is stock,with the chassis redrilled to raise the rear..this is the only modification.I hope you are getting on with your project....love to see some more photo's....

I'm sorry I haven't posted in awhile my wife and I moved to a new smaller apartment in June. I have not been able to get back too the 55 yet I have to figure out an area in the apartment where I can work. I'll post some more pictures when I get back into the build.
