In Topic: Suggestion about works in progress postings

15 October 2010 - 04:21 AM

I will admit to not reading every post in this thread,but will respond to the original post..I for one like seeing,and posting even incremental progress on a build,for a couple reasons.More than once,during a build of mine,someone has pointed out either a technique or something i may have missed,that i was able to use or fix before i progressed too far on the build.At my rate of building,with all the other responsibilities i have,along with everyone else,i would be posting once every 2 years...I enjoy sharing my progress,and hope to help others and maybe even inspire like minded people who like the same types of builds..Here is my olds...hoping to finish by the end of December..

Those are cool! I've seen a bunch of ElCamino knock offs but these are really neat. I like what you did with the wheels. Most of the kit factory rally wheels have a trim ring that is ridiculously too large. Can't wait to see the progress on these. Maybe for the 70 you can use the 442 stripes down the sides and mimic an SX model Cutlass on the OldsCamino.


thank..I was wondering one night,on my bench,how i would make those factory wheels look better...It kind of struck me as i was looking at the factory mags on the same chrome tree..i made one,and it worked out nicely..i just shot them today with Spaz Stix chrome,and i will tell you,i love that stuff..thanks to VW Dave for introducing me to it..

Chuck,The Satco tires are going to the 68...red lines..The 69 will get the polyglas goodyears...Made a lot of progress on both today..My muse has returned in a big way..

This is one of those builds that is so good,that people who do not know it,will think it came out of a kit that way...

REALLY,and seriously GREAT work...This one belongs in an off road racing museum...
