Speedster build progress

Had the chance the last couple of weeks to make a bit of progress on my Kitman Speedster:

1) I got the front and middle areas of the body bolted bolted to the subframe

2) installed the headlights and taillights - Chris from Kitman provided a template for the latter.

3) installed fuel tank

4) Started on the doors, but I have a long way to go on both.

I have not yet bolted the rear portion of the body to the subframe as I need to figure out the correct height.  You may be able to see in the pictures that the rear part of the body is sitting lower than it should.  I suspect, in order to make the engine cover fit I’m going to have to go with a different fan shroud as well.  My best guess on the correct height is when the door gaps are even.
