deconstructing a rocket car- need opinions!

Post by GoMachV »

So I grabbed this parma panther funny car to go with my panther sprint and stock car, but the previous owner made it a rocket car. I am left with some ugly holes in an impossibly difficult to find body.

I am thinking about cutting out the rear window completely, and low enough to chop out the center hole. Then, patch with a new piece of clear lexan. The bumper area could be cut out as I'm pretty sure they would have bitd. Any opinions?

How about a parachute pack on the back to hide the hole, instead of cutting out the bumper?

And this is how it starts

After my last USPS fiasco, we will discuss your birddog when I have a body in hand and haven't paid $50 out of pocket to ship it :twisted: I got screwed by the seller as he shipped it incorrectly per his listing.

I told him he could toss the chassis but I wanted the tires And axle. I'm curious wtf they are :?:
