Ok did a little work today. I scribed some new door line and moved the door handle area back. I added a strip of plastic into the old door lines so it would not ghost on me after paint,then I put some putty on it, just waiting for it to dry.

Got it sanded down and put a little primer on this. got a little more work to do to the door lines and they will be finished. So about the only thing I have not modified on this build are the headlights. Maybe that will be next.

now that I have completed the body mods, i will turn my attention to the engine, interior and chassis. I started work on the engine. I am trying to use the drivetrain out of the camaro It is a simple engine with little to no details, even the exhaust looks small compred to the engine block, oh well enough on the ranting. I first taped the engine to see what it would look like under the hood.I stripped all the chrome off the exhaust, covers and intake manifold. I then sectioned the covers and filed and cut what I hope looks like coil covers. I may end up finding another engine if I can not make this look better.

LOOKING SWEET, YOU GOT SKILLS!!!!!!!!I do like the look of the longer door. It really changes the overall look of the car. If GM did this one, I'd be standing in line!!!!!!

I have some spare LS7 valve covers and engine parts if you want them. I dont have the main engine, block and heads, but I have the intake, valve covers, etc. I would be happy to donate them to your project.
