went into the garage to get some things done and got distracted by this car again. Ended up doing a few details.

Fender vents, door handles, door jamb and truck lines...

side pipes come standard with the car. The vents were tricky. Basically thin stainless steel, cut to size notched, with the edges bent at a n angle and glued in. Each one needs to be layed in by hand. There is a little adjustment room with the metal because its so thin.

Sorry, there is no way in hell i could afford to drive that thing. The idea of smashing it up makes my balls hurt. That would be a more expensive mistake then crashing my full size car...

Here he is today! I had it painted with the same exact colors as my full size cobra. Today though, I finally scored an engine with the stacks on it. So I pulled the engine with blower out and threw in this bad boy. Finally the correct engine!!!
