Personally...the front end is too original to be a new concept. The craftsmanship is amazing though! I truly commend you for that.
It is an easy fix though, he could just "eyebrow" out the headlights like on the new camaro and make the headlights themselves projectors.

Great Build! Would really like to see your Dremel Lathe. The would really open up a whole new world of custom modeling for me.
Its not what you think, Its just a regular dremel that I chuck a piece of plasic in and shape with files and sand paper. Here is a couple of pictures when I was making tail lights for another build.

Still working on the engine bay area, I decided to cut out the section above the radiator. I then glued a piece of plastic in the same place,this will keep the section in place after it is finished. I also added a hole for the wiring to pass through and also holes for the heater hoses. I then drilled two holes in the section that I cut out made two caps, these will be the radiator and windshield washer fluid caps. Then I made a brake fluid fill and cap.

I also started on the headlghts, being that this a newer concept, i decided to try to make some projector headlight for this build.I used some round tube and the lights out of a newer corvette.

I finally got to do a little work on this over the last few days. I drilled the gauges out of the dash I will put some decals on a backing plate once I get it painted. I also scribed all the dash lines a little deeper so they would not get buried with paint. did some work on these horrible excuses for door panels. I added material to the rear panels so they would be the same depth as the front. I cut the centers out and added a design similar to the fronts. I cut out some door grabs, and made a pocket for the inside door handle. I made the door handle from a flattened safety pin. Next I will start working on the chassis.

Very nice job on the Chevelle.
I sure hope someone from the GM design team is following along with this.

This is coming along nicely, I've been following it for a bit. Never a dull update.

Wow, I am speechless, this is so amazing. If GM ever does a new Chevelle I hope they take a ton of notes from this cause this is how it should be done. Can't wait to see it when it's finished!

Looking awesome John! You definitely know modeling.
Are you gonna be at the KC Slammers show this year? I moved from Joplin to west central Missouri, which is closer to KC. I don't even know if 4 state is gonna have a show this year in Joplin.
