More updates please ! This thing is crazy and if I ever wanted to go to 1/16 I would defenetly use this tread as a guideline . Clay do you find it easyier to work in 1/16 or 1/24th? Just wandering because I'm getting old and the hands aren't what they used to be .

OK, finally some new work done on the Pro Mod. Good news is I got a new camera because I dropped my other one, and it looks like it's going to be really nice. Bad news is there is a spot on the inside of the lens that is showing up on every picture. I just gotta deal with it for now until I can get it looked at.

Anyway, back to the chassis. I had been waiting to finish off the cage until I had the floor done. I wanted to try and simulate the spot welds (Sorry Dave, stitch welds) on the floor area. After several failed ideas, I found Micro Mark now sells the raised resin printed decals. So once I got my sheets in hand, I got to work decaling all the edges. I did top and bottom, and will do all of the firewall when the time comes.

Once that was all out of the way, I could finish the FC cage. I added some Dirtmodeler PE pieces for the head rest tabs. Then I finished off the a-pillar bars, as well as the door bar "X"

The last thing I worked on was the front window support. I bent it up from some small brass rod and soldered it up. Along with some DM dzus tabs. Moving forward all I have left I believe is the firewall, and then front suspension mounts and the chassis will be pretty much done. But before that, I need to cut open and hing my doors and get them all working and finsihed off nice.

Thanks for looking!

I don't think I'd be out of line in saying that these latest pics, even if there is a spot inside the lens, are breathtaking. A true work of art, Clay!

If there weren't pictures documenting this, I would have said that this wouldn't be humanly possible. Now the bar has been set and its really high. Thanks for documenting your build Clay. Sheer awesomeness!!

Just impressive with every update!
