Nice article..hats off to Mother! I've got an altered wheel base dodge and an old front engine rail with 392 hemi power to do some day...got an old savoy with the 413/31" cross runner manifold set up buried around here too...somewhere.
...I was a gearhead before I ever started building models! :-)

Hey Jesper ,
Hex Rod, well it's made of plastic and can be found at your local hobby shop under the brand name of Plastruct. I has a shape of a hexagon, and can be use for nuts and bolts, and certain car parts.

Hey Joe,
Will you add a little bit about routing because I can probably pick up the techniques easily, but, I never know where they're supposed to go.
I DO know that after a squirrel decides the top of your van's engine is a great place to hang out and vacuum hoses are fun to chew on, I thanked God for my buddy Al with his "what-went-where" knowledge of Chevy 350ci vacuum hose routes!

squirrels!

Thanks, you rock Joe!
