Here are the modifications I used to make the body on my 2001 #8 Bud car
sit the way I wanted!
These mods were performed on a 2000-2001 resin body which I obtained
from John (JWTBM) but they should work on the regular kit bodies as
well. Each picture has measurments and or a description for each
modification. At the bottom of the page are pics of the body sitting on
the chassis! I hope this will be of help to all my nascar modeling
buddies out there!
P.S. When I finish the car I will include a section on how I narrowed
the rear track of the car (Very simple mod!)
The tab on the kit body nose needs to be about 1/16 narrower (3/16
1/4") as when I applied the tab to my #8 Olympic body (A kit body) for
the modification it was just too much! Of course no
2 cars chassis/body combination will ever be the same so it will always
be a case of slight adjustments to suit each model.
