I started with a T.D.R 68 Camaro chassis and replaced a couple of bars and started installing 1/32 brass wire to support the fire bottles , co2 bottles , and a holder for a small battery for the computer

Henry - did you already cut it, so that you could get inside, or you haven't gotten to that point yet?  Where would you make the cut, in order to not lose any strength in the chassis when it goes back together?

Nice looking right at the start.  Good job.

Henry.... you are off to a great start here. This is going to be a nice build. Looking forward to seeing more. What kind of engine you gonna do for this.

Shaun... you can also go straight to shapeways and search for TDR Innovations and their stuff should come up as well bit if you fo to TDRs page like henry mention it will take you to shapeways.
