Tyrone, Nice to see you on this board. I'm used to watching your work over there on the other one...LOL. Did the pictures of Tamez's Camaro help you out any?

Tyrone,

Excellent work so far! I'll be watching this build closely.

Where did you get the rear suspension and the wheelie bars? Are they scratch built?

Nice start! Is that chassis from '55 or '57 Chevy pro sportsman with some modifications? Roll cage is done that way too? Body looks good also, reminds me from these Finnish PM Camaros, here is the first one, Tami Brander's Camaro and here is Tomi P├Ântinen's Camaro .

Great project, cant wait to see more. ;)

thanks for the comments fellas, the front wheels are from a slot car company called pro track you can find them on ebay, the rear wheelie bars were scratch build from styrene, I've got the bracing added to the wheelie bars and mounted the rear end, I got the clear coat on the chassis too.Ive been playing around with different wheels, not sure what I'm going to use yet. Next I'll start on the brakes.. thanks for looking and comments welcome..
