Brett.... this is such a killer project and it is looking great . Your brass work is looking good. I have to give tou credit doing the frame in brass. I am loving the progress you are making and the chassis looks great with paint. Looking fotward to more.

Thanks guys, been suffering in more ways than one lately, a dose of the cant be bothereds and I cut up some firewood and took my right arm out of action for the last four days ( just chronic pain in shoulder and arm due to inflammation etc). Anyways a little progress four link arms (still to be trimmed to length), with the same hiem joint type setup the front struts have and the wheelie bars

Thanks guys :). I have to make up the rear coil overs next as they will determine where the diff sits so I can trim the four link bars to length. Might be a funny way of doing it, but that way I can make sure the wheels will sit evenly in the wells and set the height . What I think I may have mucked up on, is to me the diff head looks to be sitting to high in the brackets. Easy enough to make some more though, though I'll be making an order to Scott (futurattraction) and dirtmodeller soon for lots of bits and pieces.

Had a bit of a building hiatus till about when the forum bit the dust but in that time amassed a few more kits, decals and some beautiful photo etch form Scott aka Futurattraction. Great service from him as well.. Anyhows back to the subject at hand, got side tracked a bit when I re commenced building as I needed to build a trailer for our club theme night so I decided to build a support entourage for the camaro. Ram is a snap-tite that I got with no wheels or tires, tool box is Fugimi garage. Trailer is scratch built and there are  a few things I will change when I make another, got some in scale floor covering organized so ignore that if you would please :).

Also started the paint/ decal work on the car as I need the car to look finished to finish the sides of the trailer.

clown images are off the net, once I get another fine day I'll clear to seal them then try and blend them in a little better, space is where the cars name will be

Very beautiful work. If anyone here is ready to try to build something so out of the ordinary as to border on impossible, check this out:

 

Follow this link to the AEM tuning software website, watch the S2000 go 7.99 in the quarter and when the vid is through, you'll get a montage similar to what youtube does. Look for the red '69 Camaro and click on the thumbnail. I have never seen such questionable use of money to achieve an end result with no dyno results, no 1/4 mile numbers, etc. Anyone here want a building challenge???
