Finally have another update!

 

Here's the chassis painted with the front suspension installed, and fuel tank painted.

Engine mounted to the rear subframe along with the axles and sway bar. Valve covers added to the engine, along with the starter and remote oil filter. Exhaust manifolds flipped to provide better exhaust routing clearance. Still need to add dipstick and distributor/plug wires.

Jordan, I really like what I'm seeing on all your recent posts. I think this will be a fascinating entry and you're really knockin' it out.

I finished the engine on the Corvette/Camaro, Cormaro, whatever...  The photos flatter it but the silvers were not as diverse as I'd hoped so in real life it's kind of flat. But I'm getting better at fuel lines. I should, it took two very patient evenings.

A small update from me.

 

Seems that with all the power in the car, and that this is going to be a race, I need a cage for protection.

Hoping to get some paint on it soon too.

 

And the bodywork is still a mess and need a lot of attention

Jordan, it's looking good, that interior is super nice!

 

Mike, the engine looks great, the flat colors give it a nice menacing look.

 

Jan, the roll cage looks nice, better than anything I could ever make.

 

Keep up the great work everyone!

Here's another little update, it's going pretty smooth for now the differential is in so now it can stand on it's own.

And Here it is, the tires are from a 67 Chevelle pro street but I got these by themselves online.

 

Post3Pic3_zps3558c882.jpg

 

I must say I'm happy to see it sitting on it's tires like this not looking like a complete tragedy. lol

Nice work Pat, Viper suspension should come in handy in the curves, and 10 cylinders is always a good idea for running everyone. :)

Here's a quick little update, Today with the help of my good friends Knife, File, and Sandpaper the tranny from the front engine was removed and setup to link the engines together. Both engines are from 67 GTX's. I have 2 because when I tried to build one 7 - 8 odd years ago as my second or third build ever I messed it up somehow. I don't really remember but either the paint screwed up or something fell on it. In any case the body was toast. Wal-Mart at the time had all their models clearanced out for like 5-7 bucks so I just got another and that's how I ended up with 2 identical engines.

 

Anyway that's the story behind the engines now here are some pictures, starting with engine #1

 

Post4Pic1_zps93597d83.jpg

 

Engine #2

 

Post4Pic2_zpsff326eb1.jpg

 

And here they are linked up, I tried my hand at making a flywheel for engine #1 but it didn't turn out to well so I may end up redoing it later on

Thanks for looking! :)

Some progress from my 66 Buick.

I built the Hasegawa years ago and was lucky, while my brother gave the amt-kit it to me. That was the funny part. the bad one is, that it is a kit, i didn't like, becaus the steelaxle goes thru the engine - it is "just" a curbsidekit...wow.

o.k. who cares? the wheels in the kit are also not my taste - the rims, yes. the tires? No way...

 

So i grabbed a set out of my partsbox:


CIMG130319_017.jpg

...and what the...?

Looks like a SUV?!?

CIMG130319_018.jpg

 

I drilled new holes and now - much better B)

CIMG130319_026.jpg

 

The next fault was, to put an other engine like the stock in. You see the wheelhouses open for the stance?

CIMG130320_000.jpg

 

I tried built a "perfect looking" engine bay - i gave up. No chance, to get good looking wheelhouses AND fitting the hood...so i glued the hood. Bad thing, i know.

Next, i removed the doorhandles and trim, sanding the edges smooth. After filling and wetsanding, i painted the body in the first color and also a layer of clearcoat:

Looking acceptable.

got the body painted, decaled, and foiled and now ill let it sit for a few days and then rub out all the nasty roughness. I also got the engine painted, I didn't have hemi orange paint so I had to custom mix some regular colors into this so I hope its close.
