How about some information on that chassis.  It doesn't look like the kit chassis.

It is the original chassis with some minor modifications and the floor cut out.

Rett,

     Real nice job. Looks read to race. I like all the nice detail, especially the fender flares. How did you do them?

Glued in some small strips of plastic, some putty, and a fair amount of sanding....

Your crew is still pumping out great cars from the "DIRTMAN" garage! That really looks good Rett. Great JOB.

Cool 55 Rett! I remember when they used to drill those holes in the hood for a little extra cooling.  Nice nostalgia build! Thank you for posting pics of your work!
