62 vette top doorslammer

as you can see the vette has a very short cabin space while the fords is much longer, though the front needed to be extended for the vettes wheelbase. It will be blown and am hoping to make it a purple pearl
It will also have a top fuel style rear wing.

Its being a long time coming but its back. I couldnt get a chassis where I was happy with the fit,last night dragged it back out and got stuck into it.Heavily modified Revel pro sportsman chassis and tin with a fair amount of scratch building going on as well. Got most of the fab work done on it tonight, made it almost modular so it can be taken apart for paint and slid back together when dry and ready to glue. you can see the holes in the firewall for the steering shaft and double frame rails to slide into. Little bit of tidy up on the last few joints then off to paint. Driver's gonna have to be pretty skinny but

thanks guys, got the chassis primed and painted today. also got it installed on the tin, mucked around with wings and found one that I'll use, just gotta figure the best way of mounting it now. The chassis is a dark metallic purple not blue as the pics show

everything is winged along as I go as I wasnt planning on detailing anything that didnt show outside the body on this one. Tried out a couple new things that worked quite well, had to change a couple of others, but reasonably happy with how its turning out
