While I am waiting on the putty to cure I began working on the interior tub and the chassis. I had to move the floor of the camaro interior up slightly to get a better fit. I had to add material to the front and rear portions of the camaro chassis to fit the chevelle body.

I started working on the under hood area of the chevelle. I used the insert from the camaro and modified it to fit in the chevelle body using some sheet plastic.

This is my kind of customizing! I love building concept cars too. You have a great design, I'll be watching this one.



and thank you for not replicating that GTO/Ausralian based design. The only thing worse than that was the Bel-Air concept, cough cough T-Bird ripoff cough cough.

Well I started looking at the hood on this build and it looks bad ( look at the first picture). Tried to fix but just looked worse to me. So I found another camaro hood and modified it to fit the chevelle body. I did use the front corners off the old hood, also had to add material to the sides for a better fit.

By the way Mustangmodeler, that is a friend of mines car you have in your avatar! He call's it T-Mod. I'm sure you've done some reading on it, if not i can send you a link to his build thread on our 1:1 website (in case you wanna build a model of it!)

When you put the lite units in the rear bumper did you put them in with the arc facing the front...
