No updates yet.. I've been debating on going 10.5 outlaw style and making the rear section from styrene tube and mate it to the kit front suspension ... but I have not been able to find any good reference pics anywhere.... anybody have any pics of either outlaw ss type cars, or 10.5 outlaw cars chassis, interior, trunk, engine etc...

Honestly, I would go the x275 route or outlaw drag radial. Don't see those too often and it would be totally bad ass to see one from you
I like that idea as well. This build I'm certain is gonna be stellar no matter what he does with it. I'll be watching it closely and maybe just learn something new to help me get my modeling skills up to amateur. LOL

Your subframe connectors and other bracing in the floor pan look great. I like how you actually cut your connectors into the floor. Did you do the same thing with the diagonal connectors? I can't tell for sure about them. Also, how do you make the bends in your roll cage tubing to be so crisp, i.e., what is the process you follow to make them that sharp? She's going together well, my friend...

Coming along really nice Tyrone! I love what you did underneath .. very cool. Tuned in for more updates. Keep up the outstanding work on this one.

There's a group on facebook, that is doing these outlaw LX builds, so I decided to join in with them
Hey Tyrone... what group if you don't mind me asking. Would love to take a look at what they got there as well.
Also, what size tubing are you using for the major bars in the cage as well as the smaller cross bars??? The larger main ones look like .080.
Lastly, was gonna cruze through your Photobucket album but the link is not directing me to it.

thanks for the nce commets fellas... I really appreciate it...
Leonard..... thanks for checking in.. I appreciate the input...
Scott... thanks bro... I thought it would be cool to make those cuts in the chassis instead of just gluing them on top of floor.... as far as bending the styrene rod.. I use a lighter at times for some of my bends on others I bend the rod slowly and carefully by hand and then hit it with just a little heat from a lighter so that it keeps it's shape..
Mike.... thanks alot for checking in .... glad you like it...
Michael.... I use evergreen .062 rod I think it's #221 for most of the bars...
I've made a little bit of progress.. I've added some bars to the front of the car.. and decided to use the 8.8 ford rear end I'm gonna try to brace it up and make some shock mounts and brackets for it... here's a few pics...
this is close to the ride height I'm after.....

From the looks of the Camaro in the background thats half built I can only imagine both Mustang and the Camaro are going to look like when finish.
