Last time I posted this car here on Scaleworld, it was stanced on 19inch Workmeister wheels with Summit racing decals on the trunk, painted in teal green! I wanted this build to be different & something that’s never been seen or done before so I chopped the top off & created a roadster style windshield! This time it’s stanced on 14inch Kakou Tecchin wheels & painted rose gold metallic with 3 coats of automotive clear! I have a resin, front mounted intercooler, scratchbuilt speed holes (front & back) made from styrene & I carefully created an air inlet in the headlight bucket plus drilling a hole through the lens cover. I swapped the kit engine for an engine that’s from a Buick GNR, mated to the kit’s transmission & I also somehow, made the radiator from the GNR fit relocating the electric fan to the front of the rad! The engine sits on scratchbuilt mounts, all of the plumbing is scratchbuilt, the turbo is from Hobby Design with a scratchbuilt exhaust & resin air filter cone. The headers are connected to a blow off system from the Pontiac J2000 Pro street that sits on the trans. I have some aftermarket wiring, braided hose & photoetched battery terminals. The interior I retained the stock door panels & dash, but removed the molded in rear seat & console replacing it with 4 seats & a center console from the honda civic kit. I scratch built the speaker pods adding photo etched grilles, flocked the interior & console, added a tv, a tach on the dash & a fire suppressant bottle between the rear seats! I also added a custom e-brake handle & a custom head shifter! Chrome mirrors are from a BMW Z8 kit. The chassis is still weathered showing the teal green it used to be!
