The complete corvette interior will be used . It almost fits perfectly .

And finally , here's the underside showing the shortened chassis . It's pretty basic which made it easy to narrow the suspension . You can also see the corvette rocker panels inside of the Metropolitans . This was to locate the chassis and also to mount the sidepipes , using the outer panels as covers .
The photo is distorting things , it really isn't twisted like it looks .

Looks like Mike is getting near the finish line with his Matador, too.

Congrats, Mike. I love the mean, scowling look from this angle.

There is still quite a bit of body work to do , and I'm going to replace the side molding using a smaller size 1/2 round rod . I also want to get the ride height lower than it is .
Everything else fits pretty good , still need to work on the inner door panels .
That's about it for now . If you have any suggestions , let me know before it's too late !
Thanks . BOB .

Looking good so far, what color do you have in mind?

I also opened up the left rear quarter window opening to match the near-finished right side, so at least that went well. A coat of high-build primer helped me see where more bodywork was needed, so I sanded some more and decided to start the rear wheel flares using some styrene strip. I think I may need to enlarge the wheel openings again, this time remembering to account for the thickness of the strips.
Anyhoo, I'm calling this progress for now:

The rear window of the Gremlin is now the windshield, there is a flat-4 in the original engine compartment, the fender flairs are from an 80's Dodge charger kit.
