Sam,

The wheels are 15". Tires are M/T ST radials with 245-60 on front and 295-50 on rear. They look great on it and we are all hoping the new owner enjoys them.

Nice Dusty. We have a meeting on Saturday, I can't wait to show the club all these pictures.
Yes, the builder is eligible to win this car. Everyone over the age of 18 at the time of the drawing and who has a ticket is eligible to win.  The girl that does the drawing is a victim of cystic fibrosis and she doesn't know who has tickets in the drum, nor does she care! But we all do have a good time at the show.

George

PS: I agree with Bob's expression!

Are you following the build manual?    Or are you revising it?   Will the new edition be ready for print when I pick up HM2008 next week?!    :P

I am trying to stay with the manual but also hard to do when revising it and don't have a motor or trans in it! But for the most part it is following the manual you will be getting ;D

Dusty, since I'm getting ready to do the finish paint on my car, I have a question for you now that I've seen the above pic. Obviously the striping has been done without the body on the frame, so how are you sure the hood and trunk stripe will line up with the body stripe? I am thinking I will have to do the hood and trunk stripe to line up with the body stripe after the body is on the car and the hood and trunk assembled  on the hinges in their final position.

Regards, Sam

Sam,

I would advise painting the stripes on the car. That body is actually on a frame and those are the hinges for the Ohio car so I know them stripes will line up fine.
