I appreciate the input Bart but im gonna leave it the way it is because it will be for sale as a resin cast and some may want to chop and channel their own cars I used the An-Anabi car specs just to get me in the ball park. Im making this one with the buyer in mind.


Wouldn't it benefit the buyers more if you made something that could be used "as is" instead of a one-of-a-kind fantasy or custom that is not prototypical of any actual real car?
If you have the specs to the An-Anabi car, why not use them to make a correct replica? You are going through all this effort, seems like making a real replica would be more saleable. To me that is more in line with "having the buyer in mind". Just a thought...

thought taken into consideration.....nah! im gonna leave it like it is because some may want the rake that most ProMods body have, and it would be easier for one to remove the rake with a dremel or razor saw , than it would be for one to add the rake later and have to do exstensive body work.

Heres some progress pics for ya .....

The body has been primed for reference so I can see what still needs to be done. Theres some slight dips that need to be filled but that'll be taken care of tomarrow. I still have to sharpen the hood lines. Then all I 'll have to do is rescribe the door and hood lines. I hope you enjoy!

Oh and Bart I did take your advice and add the hood bulge back in thanks buddy! B)

Looking good,love how its turning out.Dont listen to all the people who give the advice of - it should be this way,or thats not correct,you build it the way you want.Unfortunatly,there are too many knockers out there who judge other peoples work,and that really is starting to piss me off.i just wish they would not critisize the efforts and time that people like yourself who put the time and effort into doing something different .I like pro mods because they are different beasts and the guys like yourselves who are building them ,my hats off to your tallents,keep up the good work

If your building for yourself thats all good, but you said from the get go that you are building this body to be cast in resin. If that is the case, your argument is null and void, it is your customer that has to be happy with the end result. Maybe you should rethink the whole business side of the hobby and just "build for yourself".

Firstly theres no argument and any customer who buys a product, usually doesnt buy blind. So anyone who buys from me will know what he's getting (because he can see it being built here) and thus will be happy with his purchase. Second I am building this body for me first as this will be one of my projects the bodys I cast from this master will be an added bonus. Thank you Christopher for your concern but ive throught this through throughly.

The Camaro is looking great Rom, I have 1 question: Why is there air?, oh, wait, wrong question, that's to Bill Cosby, my question to you is this: are you planning to put a wing on the back or leave it to the buying customer?, if you are putting a wing on it what kind?, the aero-style or a picnic-table style?, o-k, I know, that's 2 questions.

Hey first let me say I had that Bill Cosby record when I was a kid LOL! And to answer your question im not adding a spoiler to it that'll be up to the buyer.
