WIP: Outlaw Pro Street '69 Camaro

This is what I have done so far:
-The doors and front clip were removed.
-I scratchbuilt the frame/cage for it using 1/16", 3/64", and 1/32" brass rod/tubing. Its the same design used in pro modifed, just a shorter wheelbase.
-I created the firewall using sheet brass. All together there are 10 individual pieces that make it up.
-I scratchbuilt a wing for the body. The primer will be much smoother before paint!
-This is where the project is at now. The engine you see there is only a mock up piece for now. I am considering using the new Ross Gibson Chevy Hemi as my powerplant.
Next up will be the tub work. I'll keep you folks posted.

Irvin the Nova is still kicking! I've been hitting some road blocks with it, this is just something to keep my mind off it for a little while. Eventually it'll get finished!

You have inspired me to try out brass. I ordered some rods and I'll try to do a simple roll cage.
