I finished this one earlier this year. I named it "El Diablo" because it is so mean and full of temptation.Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image

Nice work Tony, you just need to 'flip' the tyres over, the tread pattern is backwards mate ;)

Hey Ray, I'm sure you have been right before, but this time you'r wrong. The tread pattern is correct.

Here's the Camaro kit instructions Tony ;)

Well Ray, I dug out the instructions for the Camaro and I see the picture you posted (wheel & tire assembly), but if you look on the next page (wheel & brake assembly) you will see the direction of the tread is going the same direction as mine.

I like the red interior. And yes, the tires are going the right direction. The arrow formed by the tread should point forward on top and to the read when looking under the car. (I used to work at a tire shop mounting tires)

That looks great! I've been eyeing some El Camino kits - I especially like the '59s. :)
