Here is the motor, The motor is an LS7 that I had to put into resin and redo a lot of the location of parts, I added a 4spd trans with an all new bell housing. The headers are done in a rap and painted a off metlaic black/sliver base to look like the rapping they used. The three colors on the motor it's self are black with clear coat that has a 3:1 deadner added to make it a semi gloss, The hot rod black also had a deadner added to it to flat'n it out more and then the Bronz was added. Since this pic i have added the AC hose, wire lums and also the fuel lines and the breather lines. The oil cap is made out of aluminum and painted and can be removed for detail look. The front cover had to be complete'ly rebuilt and have the Alt location move down next to the power steering and was all taken apart and casted and then bolted back together. Oil pan was also bolted in place and so was the intake. The air intake inlet also has been made and i'm waiting on my shipment for more resin so I can put the 4 parts of that into the mold and make that and get it painted.

The top pic, Was lining up the rear swaybar to make sure it's straight across. This is the bar it's self. In the middle pic showing with the rear end where the arm is located and will be hooked to the top of the rear end with him joints and aluminum bar. The swaybar arm will also be bolted tight to the swaybar its self and will be albe to move with the rear end. This is a nascar style swaybar hook up in the rear and will also have another one built the same way in the front end.

Lower pic showing the nascar style front swaybar coming out to be line up to the center of the frame rail. The upper pic is showing the swaybar arm that has 2 bends in it one down and one over to line up with the tab on the lower strut arm. This will be hooked up with him joints and will be a working part of the car. The tie rod will come from the bottom and run just under the first bend to connect to the spindle.

Thanks guys, getting the tie rods and steering made today. Then it is really ready to go into paint and doing all the machine parts. Still have to make the mono balls for the upper and lower controal arms.

you can see the arms coming off the spindle, They are lined up just passed where the rod from the lower controal arm and the swaybar is. The tie rod runs just under the swaybar arm and will be connected to the Sweet steering box.

The top pic is showing the front lower roll pan and detail work done to it. The wing covers bolt up to the inner fenders and cover up the wires and stuff as they do to hide things like this for the show car styling. Also you can see the bolt holes to the lower pan that covers the steering rack and front swaybar, this will have .020 bolts in them for detail. The middle pic shows the rear shock tower added to the frame rail. For the last pic is showing the front trailing arm tabs to connect to the lower controal arm..
