I built a "basic" Bel Ray Bullet a while back, I know it's not the same car but it had a similar starting point.

I call it "basic" because I wanted to keep the standard SRB radio box & didn't alter the rear suspension.

I've attached a pic, not because I want to be that guy that wants to make every thread/post about themselves, but because I wanted to show that trimming 10mm or so off the sides and nose makes it look a lot less portly & the gaps look ok.

:)

Nice work :) The shape of the front nose reminds me of the Dodge Charger Daytona or the Plymouth Superbird :P
