I like the second picture better, too. How about cutting the bottom off of the whole cab, and lower it down in the T-bird? I don't know if it would work, I'm just throwing out an idea.

 

x2!

Working on the GTO chassis. It's been more of a challenge than anything else. Pics soon.

Hey rmvw guy, your primered '55 has about the worst (best?) case of badass I've ever seen. Love it.

A little update on my '86 Camino, after sanding, sanding and sanding I decided to try how it looks in color. It's Maston spray paint and the paint job turned out Okay. I'm going to do light wetsand and then it will look better. Clearcoat still to come, too. Also I've made some rough sanding with the chassis, more of it coming later...

Thanks Ace Garage Guy, It means a lot coming from you.  Your Deuce is one of the most killer ones I've seen.  Still working on the tube frame and having fun with it. Plan on doing the rear also. The idea now seems to be just having '55 sheet metal which is slowly getting cut away.  :lol:  The engine is a 350 Chevy out of the Monogram '37 Ford kit. I wanted to keep it 1/24 scale and mated it with the transmission from the '55 kit.  I then realized the kit engine is a SBC, even though the "Bad Man " kit calls it a 396. Oh well, the new one has better detail.DSC04281_zps29ba24ef.jpg

Moving along...

Basic interior shaped in and power almost complete. I have gone through two headers so far - no luck. Going to try a dragster style exiting the wheel well next.

I like the way you handled your interior using flat panels, it makes sense.  Those headers look killer, what kit did you source them from?  I love the bluing effect. Nice progress!

The chassis came loose from some kits I bought, it is identical to the STP Pro Stock car, except had provisions for two seats.

Everything  got shaved to fit the Vega body.

I'm trying to finish up my '57 Ford Custom on another thread, then I will get back on this.  Also would like to start the Stacy David Rat Roaster as well as finish my other dozen builds I started last year.  Good thing about this one, you gave us a whole year. I appreciate the way you are hanging in there with us.

I have run a few CBP's and I have found the most successful ones are when the thread originator takes the role of cheerleader.  :D It keeps people engaged and keeps the thread from dying out. It also helps keep me focused and motivated. I will finish this GTO before the fall contests.

I have been working on the chassis of my El Camino. I hope I can get fast Mock Up done today and see if it has the correct stance. If not, then I need to do some adjustments, but I should have an update soon. Also I need to figure out those Headers for the engine. It shouldn't take too long before it's done.
