This will be a drawn out build thread and so far all I've done is nail together what Jedi designed and GeneB cutout, but i got plans for this pit.

I came to see the pit, and it looks nice as can be.
But what has me posting is the poster/photo of the car in the background...
Gulf Porche 917? Great choice/good taste. My favorite car of all time in one of its most famous paint schemes.

Looks great! I only wish I'd painted the interior surfaces of the ejection seat parts before I started my assembly. Getting paint in there is going to be a pain.
