I guess if we are going to race across the country, a stock 53 Vette suspension might not be the best option.

 

After cutting out the front crossmember, I went about kicking the front frame rails up and then added the crossmember back in, in it's raised position. Then I cut out the back arches and then wrapped some styrene around an 87 Corvette IRS. Now with fully independent  suspension, along with a very low center of gravity it should be quite a canyon carver.

Great work so far everyone.

 

I've got a bit more work done on the Mustang. The underside has been given some body color overspray, the suspension has been painted and the rest of the body panels primed.

Cool, a custom made 7 cylinder engine. Now that´s different. Hope you´re going to add a wicked scratchbuilt DOHC head and a cool injection or turbo setup.
I know it´s still in the mock up stage, but the tire tread is facing in the wrong direction.

Haven't gotten anything done. This month has been filled with death, visiting relatives and mayhem. Not in the mood to paint.

I've just been doing too much other stuff... working on 2 of my 1:1 project cars is what is keeping me from doing any building.
