This is one I'm going to dig out one day and finish I hope.

Cut the doors and trunk,going to do a custom interior,did some custom work on the engine compartment.

Got a custom hood and scratch built IRS for the rear and a IFS in the front.

A lot to do but its time to dig it out and get to it.

Got some custom rims standard kit tire's in the front and some nice wide tires in the back.

As a huge fan of the original pro street look from the 1980's I'd love to see this one when it's done. B)   Can I ask where you got those wheels?

Thanks for the comments guy's.

As for the rims I made up a master and Jim Littiken at www.micronitro.net did them in aluminum.

They came out very nice.

Hello Earl,

that's going to be great. When talking about wheels....have you still got the kit's original Rally rims in your stock? I am looking for a set of those, to put them on my Doyusha Corvette.

 

Thank you

Michael

I'm totally sold on your build.  The way it sets is right-on and I love your wheels.  The custom engine compart looks as smooth as a baby's butt... :)

Thanks again for the comment's everyone.

I'm scratch building my first Engine for this one.

I have the basic block started and will be working on it more today.

I'm using the 1/12 67 Corvette block to go by.

It will not be a perfect 427 match but it will be a very nice BIG BLOCK under the hood.

I'll post progress photo's of it soon I hope.

Got a little start on the engine.

It's not perfect and there's more detailing and final shaping to do.

It's a little bigger than the 1/12 67 Corvette 427, but in the mock up it look's like I want it to in the engine bay.

Found my Camaro box that was packed away and now I can get back on it.

This rearend was scratch built using print out's on how to install it in a real 69 Camaro.

The brake disc are metal washers everything else was built by me.

It's not perfect but it looks real enough for my first time building one anyway.

Very nice job on the rear end, Earl.  It doesn't look first-time-ish at all!
