Casey (one of the mods here) did a heck of a job with those wheels! I have a set destined for an early T/A project. Good luck with this one!!! For tires, the recommended tires are the optional wheels in the Revell kits such as the Chevelle wagon and the like.

It says you can use any from the California wheels kit that have the larger wheels in them...

awesome build, thank you for the link for the wheels as well. My father in law, who passed in 06 had a 78, that he loved dearly and alas, like most that age bracket, sold it when his wife (my mother in law) got preggo with their son. After they had their daughter for child #2 (who is my wife) he wanted to search for one, but went the drag racing route instead. I'm embarking on a similar build as a tribute to him, with the goal to present it to my wife for xmas (yikes!)

Smokey and the Bandit was a great movie and I love what YearOne did with it. Im also a big fan of the 69 camaro they redesigned with Foose. Personally, I like their version of Bandit more then the original car so I'm looking forward to seeing how this build comes together. So far everything looks good, keep it going.

Looking good. the y1 firebird looked pretty nice, so will be interested to see how this runs.

 

 

Wasn't the Smokey and the Bandit car a 77? Don't get me wrong I love how this car looks I'm just asking.

S&B1 was a 77, S&B2 was 78 and S&B3 was a 82.
