This was the blue LE with the flame job and TTs. I got rid of the wheels and used half a bottle of polish remover to get the flames off. I did some dremmil work to get the rotors to stay in place and had to work on the wheels for them to stay in place and turn.

What ya'll think. :feedback

I might work on it some more to get the front tires all the way inside the fenders as they stick out just a hair.

Al,

Looks great.

I really like that color. Do you have a before picture with the flames?
The paint is well applied and really deep. I did not take a pic before. Here is a small one from Kevin's scale18.com

The Cobra wheels look great. Can you lower it anymore in the front ? Any engine mods ?
Scott, no engine mods just yet-all Ertl still. I can now see that the front end needs to go down. I will try on Monday to reverse the spindles and see. Or maybe I swapped them by mistake and it raised the front end.

Darrick,
Due to Ert'sl "famous" Quality Contol, the tampo flames were crocked/damaged and looked bad, so I had no choice. Plus I got it reduced for $9.95 at a Fry's and I did not noticed how bad it was when I bought it. I did like the flame job as it represented that time period (mid-late '70s) as well as the TTs.

Thanks for the comments! :cheers

how did you get the flames off? I have the Ertle Ford F-150 slammed series pick-up truck and it has some ugly flames i want to take off.
Non-acetone nail polish remover, cotton pads and lots of elbow grease! Be carefull with clear plastic parts like windshields.

Thanks for the responses! :cheers I'll have to get this 4-year old mod off the shelf and re-do it. I am a little more confident doing mods nowadays :giggle

Some carpet and a lowered stance would do wonders.
