Hey boys,

Doing this car up for robber38. A little different situation to what I'm used to. We have myself doing the detail work and another fellow, who is painting and decaling the car. Currently, I'm unable to paint big projects due to weather issues and the new house doesn't afford me the opportunities to paint inside, as of now. So, here is what I have done to Robbys car.

So here is the car.


First thing I did was prep the body for painting. I constructed a new fuel filler housing and applied bondo to the headlight covers and air intakes under them. Concurrently, I adjusted the ride height.






Then I began the styrene work with the roof rails and rear spoiler.




Next I detailed the rear suspension.


Just need to add the brake lines and other minor details.

Then starting from the rear and working forward, I constructed the fuel cell area. The fuel filler neck and overflow tube will be added before assembly.



Into the cockpit, I fabricated a new rollcage as the Action one was not the same to the ref. pics, a tray for the ignition pkg, added the fuel line, constructed the fire suppression system and other plumbing items. Did the rollcage with scale padding and fab'd the mounts and control knob for the Fire suppression system. Other details will be added shortly, just waiting parts.







In the engine compartment, I built a new cage but it is not a 100% accurate due to the way Action constructs their diecasts. Used the original radiator but added the electric fan housing. Made the shock housing points, the oil filter bracket and the same for another resevoir and the power steering resevior (those two not shown- awaiting paint). All shocks were constructed out of styrene and are moveable.




More to come.

Hey Boys,

Let me start off with, GREAT JOB ON ALL THE GREAT LOOKING CARS THAT YOU GUYS HAVE BUILT thumbsup I'm finally back again, for how long, who knows.

Anyway, here is what I have done on Robbers car so far. With my breaks between trips, I have completed the interior of the car. More specifically the seat with the 5 point harness.






All the accessories within the cockpit have been added and connected. For example, the fire bottle is now connected to the left side and roll bar fire extinguisher nozzles. The ignition package is also complete on the floor tray.







The oiler cooler has been plumbed and the wire from the electric fan has been ran to the cockpit.



The engine is pretty much done less the headers which i'm fabricating out of solder and brass tubing. The carb is complete and weathered. Once the headers are done and added to the engine, i'll add the distributor and spark plug wires and do the final plumbing jobs around the engine.





Here is the linkage detail for the transmission.



Here are some pics of the body that was painted by another fellow.







Hope you enjoy boys, more to come, stay tuned.

Derek, maybe you know the answer to this question. Why was waltrip using hoosier tires? I thought everyone was using goodyears exccept for the ARCA and modified series.

I was looking at the body and saw the hoosier decal above the front fenders and thought for a second that there was something wrong with that. I figured you were right and some quick research confirmed it.

Just an interesting question I wondered if someone could shed some light on.

In the 1989 500, Goodyear had some tire issues, so for safety concerns, all cars in the 500 that year ran Hoosier tires.

Detail on that thing is amazing!

Well, this beast is almost done. Sorry Robby and all for the delay but it has been a very busy summer. I haven't gotten any summer holidays, not till Christmas now. Come to the Infantry School for a break they say, My a$$.

Anyway, I think I'm 90% complete, just need to airbrush the headers and mount them into the exhaust collects and add all the little detail items. Here is what I have completed since the last post.

The left side of the engine


The spark plaugs and wires have been added for both sides, detailed the Carb, Distributor and custom made the header plates.



Finalized all the plumbing.



More of the carb details, truely a pain with big hands.





Robby had requested for a removalable air filter, so I did it, using brass rod and resin bolt heads.

Here is the engine mounted less the headers, the fuel line and a coolant line. Require to have the headers mounted before adding these items.





Moving to the rear, just little stuff added here. Once the body is mounted and screwed down, the fuel filler with tube and the over flow with tube will be added.



Moving to the body, all the windows have been added after tinting, painting the trim around the exterior and filling in the gaps between the windows and body with epoxy, subsequently painting over the epoxy to provided a seamless look.







Also completed, was the dash with all the switched and guages (Filled with Kystal Klear to give the glass look), Fab'ed a steering column and mount as per the original car ref. pics. Then it was finished off with a Modern Motorsports Steering wheel with radio cable, then fixed to the dash. Underneath, I added aluminum exhaust pipes but you'll have to wait till I get headers mounted.

Well, I hope you enjoy and I'll be glad when this is done cause I got a pile of Sterling Marlin decals and projects waiting to be done. Thanks.

Thanks boys,

Let me tell you, don't ever do a custom project like that. My chest, that sucked the life out of me. Everything went well during mock up and when the final assembly came about, nothing was fitting properly, had to make adjustments all over the car but it is done.

So boys, consider me back. Got lots of Sterling cars to do.

For Tim Drake17, check back with me in a month or two. Want to get some of my projects done.

Thanks again boys.

Hey Guys,

I just wanted to let everyone know that I received the car from Derek last week and WOW !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!. I couldn't be happier. It looks like the real racecar was shrunken down. I bet if it if it were anymorw real the thing would start up and run.. I'm getting a special case to put it in to protect it. One thing Derek and I forgot to mention is that I had a speciial dashboard decal made up and placed on it like the one that was on the car during the race that shows the race was on CBS the cAr #, Driver, Sponsor and so on. It is just a real pecial piece. Also, since the windows were blocked off in that race the only way to get to the weight adjusters was to drill holes in the roof and drop in a socket wrech and adjust on extended weight jackers that almost come up to the roof. Derek added these to the car as well. I would have to say from looking at the car and counting all the details, I would have to think that the car is about 90% Scratch Built. I've never seen anything like it in all my years of modeling. hope to have another one done by Derwek soon. this time it will be Cale Yarboroughs 1984 Hardee;s Daytona 500 Winning Monte Carlo Notchback. what I have planned for that car my make this DWW car look ordinary LOL :)

Thanks Derek !!! I owe you BIG TIME !!!
Robby
