    I'm slowly piecing together a 2nd kit. I don't have any use for the chassis and related components and hate to rob complete kits of these items so I just piece them together.

    Got these items in the mail over the last couple of days:

    Still accruing parts on this one. Managed to pick up a blank grill without the turn signals from Competition Resins and a spare Mustang kit for the chassis.

    Here are a lot of photos I saved off of FB. Also you'll find his first test mule 70 Maverick that was Red, as well as the East Coast Blue and West Cost White car. There was also a article in Hot Rod of a Blue with white stripe ex-Ford Drag Team car that was found. Interestingly enough, it was red under the blue. Maybe his old test car. There were more than just three shots of that car that I had saved some where and some that showed the interior. It was most definitely red. And you will notice in a couple of these shots, that his car looks to have had red interior at one time. Maybe more than one blue car. Might have been the early red repainted blue and then an actual blue car with black interior. - Matt
