Basically - no body mods at all (except for rule # 2 for window(s) and/or bumper(s) when painting the body & body post length trimming). Material can be added to lengthen the body post(s) if need be to gain tire clearance.
  3. No lightning/grinding of the body allowed. Only exception is that the inside of the wheel well(s) may be ground on to facilitate tire clearance but not for the purpose of lightening the body. Wheel well opening edges must not be touched.
  4. Hood scoops will resemble period correct scoops (aftermarket style scoops are allowed but must be in scale and representative of the correct era for the car being modeled. No modern Pro Stock style or Pro Mod style scoops allowed).
  5. Weight may be added to the body or chassis but it must be glued/mounted in and cannot rattle around or come loose.
  6. Painting & decaling of the bodies is allowed. Window(s) and/or bumper(s) may be removed to facilitate painting however the plastic stub that the window(s )and/or bumper(s) orients onto must still be attached to the body. The portion that needs to be ground off to remove the window(s)/bumper(s) may be ground off permanently. Super glue or a soldering iron may be used to re-attach the window(s)and/or bumper(s) to the body.
