What's up fellas.... this is one I started on yesterday.. this one will have a vinyl top.. I used the pro sportsman chassis as a start, but will be only using a few pieces from it . There were a few modifications that had to be done first though... I had to move the lower strut arms back to center them up in the wheel wells.. here's a few pics.. thanks for looking and comments welcome...

 

these pics show the changes made after re-locating the lower arms, and removing the raised beads from the rear wheel tubs, and floor board. I also cut the front firewall down so that it is not as tall, I also removed the molded in dzus fasteners, and brakes lines and cables that were molded in the chassis, these will be replaced with lines and cables later..

next up I modified the front frame rails I filled in the holes with .035 styrene rod and filled down the mount tabs for the front struts and made my own I used the strut mount gussets from Scott...

Awesome. Can't wait for this to get built up.. a dark green metallic would look really cool with white stripes. Maybe it could look like a Yenko Camaro...

What you've done so far is looking super, Tyrone.  I like the idea of cleaning up the separate frame rail and detailing it on your own instead of using the cast-in-place components.  Can't wait for your next update!
