Hi fellas!

 

Finished my Cannonball Run build yesterday. Here's some information of Camino.

 

Engine:

 

Chevy big block with fuel injection and it's made from parts that I found from my parts box.

 

Chassis:

 

Nothing Special, Suspension is mostly original and i think that biggest modifications what I made to it is molded exhaus pipe removal, wheels and tires and brakes.

 

Body:

 

Body Color is made by Maston and it's painted with spray can. After two rounds of clear coat i polished body and it's turned out pretty good. 

 

Interior:

 

There's C4 Corvettes seats, smaller steering wheel, Interior floor is flocked and pedals are from Revell '72 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme.

 

Heres some pics.

Looks really fine to me . I wouldn't want to have to deal with the Fuel injection though. I'm a carburetor person ...................

Thanks Ed! I'm not a big fan of fuel injections too but It's different because almost all of my builds have Carburetor engine. :)
