Thanks for all the kind words, boys. Much appreciated. Ive gotten quite abit done, but I want to get a few things finalized before I show you the updates, so instead I will leave you with this teaser of what Im thinking the final color will be.

I will keep that in mind. Heres my update. The interior is done as far as the build stage goes. I just need to finalize it, lay down the colors, carpet, etc. But, the structure is built. Also built a cage, my first one. Im pretty happy with the result. I plan to add some bars through to the engine bay and some rear bars to the rear frame. Anyway, comments and criticism is always welcome.

That is a great color. Thanks for sharing everything so far! You've got me excited to go and try to scratch build a frame!

Thanks for the replies, guys I really appreciate the feedback! Heres another small update. Starting the body mods. I added mirrors from the 2010 Camaro, scratch built a hood scoop and spoiler, shaved the door handles. Just gotta do the putty work to smooth it all out and she should be ready for primer and final sanding. Shes really starting to look like something and Im very pleased with it so far. This one has been my most ambitious project yet and I think Ive really stepped my game up on this one. So anyway, comments and criticism is always welcome. Thanks for looking!

Oh, on the headlights, that area around the headlight surrounds... how can I fix that?

Nice work so far. It's really coming together. To answer your question, I'm guessing putty and sandpaper will fix the mold imperfections next to the headlights.

That's looking really good!

A little constructive criticism: you may want to consider making the rear spoiler a little thicker as it looks like it's kinda wavy. If you make it another layer of plastic thicker and sand/file it down to a "sharper" edge, it'll hold its shape better.
