Thanks fellas.. I really appreciate it... well I got a little time at the bench tonight... been glued to the t.v. with the playoffs on... I got the inner door skins done.. and for the engine I decided to go with the pro sportsman engine block and heads, intake is from the pro stock cutlass kit.. and I took the front engine plate from that kit and modified it by removing and filling in the water jackets.. and modified the water pump to look a little more current... I really wanted to use the ross gibson 762 but there is not enough clearance... I'll do the best I can with what I got.... Thanks for looking and comments welcome.... I really wanted to use this front engine plate from Dirt Modeler... but it wont fit without some modification... 002-2_zps9dea9df2.jpg Ross Gibson engine is a lot bigger... 007-3_zps854a8959.jpg I drill out the exhaust ports... I've found this makes it alot easier when it's time to make the headers... 009-4_zpse24c7509.jpg008_zpse6b8bb43.jpg010-3_zps648603bc.jpg011-3_zps77a76f36.jpg

Looking real good.  Should be really nice when it's done.  I like your idea of drilling the heads to ease header fabrication- I was thinking of that earlier toady as I was head-building a '71 Charger.

Those are some nice updates, Tyrone!  Are RG engines typically 1/24th scale?  I don't know - just wondering??  Your side-by-side pic of the two engines certainly makes it appear that it's a different scale from the kit engine.

Thanks alot fellas... Scott I dont know exactly what scale this engine is supposed to be... I'll check the package when I get home... I've decided I'm gonna use the kit engine, and just try and get it to look as close as I can to the current engines... Thanks again fellas...

'55 Chevy Pro Mod - Super sweet subject matter and project.  I'm really watching this as I have a similar build in the planning stage.  This will speed up my research for sure!  I don't know how you can keep up this pace, Tyrone.  I've barely finished reading your last thread and here's another one.  You must have a ton of Cola and coffee on hand and then occasionally your wife slips some food  under the door.
