oha,...if i see your progress guys, i am a "small light" with my curbside Buick. Hm, think, i will enter with a second one, when this is done.

So, i was a little busy last time, but i've done a little progress. the paintjob (spraycans) is done:

Not a big thing similar to your work.

More will come up, if i have done the BMF-job and the clear cote.

 

Go on buddies!

I'm pretty impressed with the painting that's been shown here so far. All you guys are giving good care to color choices, finishes and crisp two toning. Looking forward to more.

Yeah the paint jobs so far have been out of this world. Is this a cross country race or a Sema show? lolz

 

Either way I'll have to up my game if I want to keep up with you guys.

 

The paint on that Wildcat looks beautiful Dominik, those 2 colors go perfectly with each other.

Well done you guys who have finished your builds.

It's happened before that early finishers have not actually turned up to race so don't forget to line up at the start in December...

Guys, your builds looks amazing. B)

 

Now the engine of Camino is finished and i think it's turned out pretty good. Next I need to start work with chassis and made transmission bracket etc. to it.

Here's some more process from me, been hard working on it lately with my allergies. Anyway this is a quick run down of my progress over the past weeks.

 

Starting with the bracing for the frame, I think it will be enough to handle the engines. I'm not planning them to be 800hp each, more like 250 to 300hp so my fuel mileage doesn't completely suck.

 

Post6Pic2_zpse6389c26.jpg

 

Next on the list is a custom fuel tank for greater range.

Post8Pic3_zpsf75f14f7.jpg

 

And lastly I've recently got the floor board done.

 

Post9Pic2_zpsd541991f.jpg

 

In a nutshell that's what I've been doing this past month. Now I'm onto working on the body to get it to where I can do a full fledged mock up to see what the beast really looks like.

 

 

Edit: Fixing the ever persistent typo lolz.

Some updates to my Camino. Chassis is on four wheels now. It's not very low but now roads what are in bad condition can't stop my Camino very easy. :D Also filled those holes on the dash board what I made for extra gauges.

Buddies....great work at all! compared to you, i am a smaaaaaall light with my lousy built :mellow: ...hm.

 

But, i had a good run last weekend and did some work on three kits at the same time. sure i will get other old stuff from my bench for new ideas.

 

So, what happened? I did in fast four hours the "BMF"-job...

CIMG130421_046.jpg

...completed the interieur with nothing special (only a rollbar and boom-boom) and finished the clear cote:

CIMG130421_049.jpg

There you see the small speakers to drown out the engine when i press behind you (because of your fabulous work buddies!)

 

After three days of drying the paint, i completed the Buick. Here a preview, more in the galerie:

CIMG130424_051.jpg

 

My conclusion? Short built for a shiny car. I renounced decals like a racecar - the colours are more a undertaker in a "illegal streetrace from coast to coast".

I promise improvement for the next built. Just wait for parts and then i start up with a new CB. Pure racecar - i swear ;)
