Suspension, cockpit, and decals are pretty much done. Numbers are Indycals. “Tombstone Life” decals by GWS. Others were a gift from Russ. Still have the roll bar and roll bar bracing, the rear “bumper”, exhaust pipe, oil tank, gas cap, windshield (which always causes me problems), and wheels to go. By the way, I used Krylon Original Chrome on the exhaust and oil tank, and was very, very pleased with the result. Much easier than Alcad.
