Dirt Late Model Camaro

I've been Making bits and pieces, fitting and shaping things. The driver is from a Sprint car kit, cut up and re-glued all the joints.
I set the suspension for turn four. The car will be on a base like this one is.
Thanks for looking....

Really looks great James, l think you could build anything...

Thanks guys, it is you fellows who inspire me to be better.
Painted and began detailing the body. The rivets where painted with a mechanical pencil dipped in silver paint, and the decals are UP Scale Classic found at a swap meet. Tamiya White and Mat Black decanted and airbrushed on.
After it dries for some time the inside will be painted black as well. The chassis is coming along also, flat grey with some subtle weathering.
The engine and compartment is almost done. Scratch bent headers with Alclad and water color wash. I'm liking it sofar!
The driver will be next...

Dang, I am really digging this one. But I am more of a Sprint fan, so why are the rear flares different side to side? Is it an aero thing?

Some aero must have been involved. If you look at old pictures of these Dirt cars, there was nothing symmetrical about them. I thin they would just cover what felt right.
After that it was follow the winner! You know what I mean?
