I like the bumper alot better now.  my suggestion is to flatten out the inboard side of the taillight so it is parallel to the up down line on your center panel. like the factory ones. then the lights wont be fighting the flow you have going on.  I also agree with changing the rear side window to mimic the 70 chevelle shape.  keep it up!

OK made a little progress on this build today. I made some hood hinges out of brass tubing and rod. I also added some bracing on this inside of the hood.

I also decided to put some newer door handles on this. I had a mini cooper parts car and I thought that the handles off it would look good so out came the cutters and I began some surgery on the doors.

Here is a picture with the door handle on the car. Now should I leave them chrome or paint them body color?

Leave the door handles chrome.  They do that on retro cars... PT Cruiser has 'em.  I did the same on a Concept Camaro kit that I did a retro bit on, added chrome in several spots.

I will probably use the camaro engine but I will modify it a little. Now that I have all the body mods done I will start on the engine and chassis. As soon as it warms up enough I will try to get some color on this.

Done some work on this over the last couple of days, added the tail light pockets from the new camaro. Had to modify the front and rear suspension to fit under the chevelle body. I also made some new rotors using pegaus rotors and made a new shim for the front side and used the back side of the camaro unit.
