    UPDATE 11/19/09

    AUCTION IS LIVE!! AND SO IS MY GRANDMA:) 

    Well after many hours working on this guys, I am almost done. I am writing this from the hospital with my Grandma. (She is doing better) Here is where I am at and he will be finished tonight:) 
    Still gotta do the details and other things. This is my first re-shell so please be kind:) 


    Thanks to Wheel_Jack for the Jazz he did. Also, thanks to Frenzy_Rumble for hooking me up with the Jazz noodle and decals:) 

    I have decided to update Jazz:) 

    This little guy is pretty difficult to work on...

    I used a universe prowl, a 1/35 Porsche 911 GTI slot car, a head from F_R, decals he and I made as well. I base coated him with automotive urethane PPG white and a purple pearl, added the decals and then used urethane automotive clear for the best shine!!! To bad my pics don't show it..

    THIS HAS BEEN A HUGE LEARNING EXPERIENCE FOR ME IN THE WAY OF CUSTOMIZING. Thanks to all the pioneers of this art!

    NICE a reshell by encline!! I'm definitely looking forward to this! But....that's not a 935, is it?! Styling cues suggest 911, but the rear is a little too long....

    looking good man, reshelling is a BITCH. i've attempted once, and i realized the model scale was too small, so I said screw it.

    and that was alternator size, so I def. feel ya on reshelling a deluxe.

    Looking forward to updates and resultd bro

    SICK new pics! Looks like the 911 GT1 Le Mans mold works wonders!! Thanks for letting me know, I was going crazy for a little while trying to figure which Porsche it was.....

    Hmm, I hope you're going to get rid of the "neck" base, it looks like you're trying to figure out a way to.

    wow, i was going to guess a Porsche 997 but i guess it makes sense that it's a 911 since it's a track car with the roof scoop.

    Nice work so far, encline! This has a nice IDW feel to it (at least in the chest). Looking forward to seeing more, bro.
