Thanks Guys! I finally made it back to the bench to wrap up the Camaro....

 

I painted the cage semi-flat black, with heat shrink used to replicate roll bar padding and detail wire used for zip-ties

I also scratch-built a battery box with more detail wire used for the cables. I also finished the rear down bars of the cage

The roll bar is installed for good and the interior is finished!

More pics! I also wired the shift light after I glued it on for the third time(kept hitting it mocking up the cage).

That's amazing! Where did you get your rear tires from? I'm building a drag radial mustang and don't have anything close to what I need haha

Thanks!

 

Peter, the rear tires are Nascar goodyears with the letters facing inward. I then sanded the the smooth side and hand-painted the M/T logos with a white Jelly Roll pen available from most art/craft stores.

 

Jake, I like yours is it an 88 too?

Very nicely done Camaro! I really like the paint work and the overall detailing on this. Especially I like the hood with that Cowl Induction scoop. Really nice job all over. The lettering on the tires is done perfectly, too. It is also nice to see these Camaros with 15" Wheels and high profile tires. It looks thousand times better than with those original low profile tires and big wheels.

 

Congrats on very fine build.
