Talking My Mustang Boss 429 Custom

Hi! This is my first post. I'm from Brazil.
My English is horrible, then they pardon me in case that I write something wrong!

Below they follow the photos of the Mustang.

Re: My Mustang Boss 429 Custom

Nice! Im also have a 429 Boss on the buildbench! Mine is going for factory stock tough. Some questions:
Did you also have problems with the front piece was too wide for the body? Mine was about 3-4 mm too wide... Strange.

Yeah! I had a difference of 2 mm. But I pulled the laterals of the car in top of a candle and I was excellent.

Re: My Mustang Boss 429 Custom

Ok, nice to know my body wasn`t warped! I cut my frontpiece in the middle and filed it to fit , then glued the front piece on the body ( i know the instructions tell you to put it on almost at the end of the build),and with some sandpaper it looks ok!

What wheels and paint have you used? Looks very "Pro Touring"!

The idea to cut is very good!
The wheels I do not know the mark, but they are more popular of the one than of the Aoshima here in Brazil.
The painting I passed a layer of Tamyia X11 (Chrome Silver) and later I passed some layers of X26 (Clear Orange).

Thanks!

I bought the wheels in Brazil, in a site like Ebay. The address is www.mercadolivre.com.br. They are wheels that say to be of the Jada Toys. But I do not have certainty of the mark of it!

It took me a while before Image Shack would allow me to see the pictures enlarged, but I finally got 'em. Looks good!
