    Came out looking really cool! Nice conversion and color.

    I found a built kit online that was pretty much a glue bomb. The part that bugged me the most was the poseable steering was glued with one front wheel higher than the other. I thought about the freezer trick which I've had mixed results with in the past. Then I thought about something I had in the garage called Freeze-Off made by CRC. Works great on rusted on bolts by what the can says is a "freeze shock action... immediately drops the temperature of the area in direct contact". The nozzle comes with a small straw to direct the spray in tight areas so I gave the pieces a quick shot and it worked. Parts separated without breaking or damaging the plastic. This is nasty stuff so if you try it do so in a well ventilated area or outside and use a mask and goggles and all those safety measures.  I washed the parts in dish soap and water and was good to go. This was the first time I tried it so I'm not saying I swear by it but I will try it on the next glue bomb I come across. Individual results may vary.

    Thanks for the kind words guys,  I appreciate that. I prefer the 2 door over the 4 door Tahoe and even the Suburban.  It looks good stock, lifted and outfitted for emergencies. 
    I agree, the '99+ alloys look better than the stockers.  I think I'll de-chrome them, paint them silver and add some wash to them and see how that looks. 
    And since I have a spare chassis, I'll leave one at stock height and lift the suspension on the other. 
    Thanks again

    Very nice work!  I can't stop looking at it.

    Coming along nicely Curtis. As for the trim, maybe a very dark shade of Grey would work.

    I cut the chassis down to size. Again, sure it's not exactly like the 1:1 but it works. I'm waiting for a couple of sets of wheels & tires I ordered from Scenes Unlimited before I touch the suspension. If they're to large for the stock set up I'll lift the suspension. Or I may just leave it stock and use the Silverado wheels & tires.

    I'm calling the interior done. I'm sure it's not to spec but close enough. Had to notch the wheel humps a bit to get the rear seat to sit right. Also can't find the decal sheet so I'll be printing a copy of the instrument cluster.

    Nice job! Love the street version too. That's a fun kit to build.

    WOW! This is an awesome build of an awesome build.

    Nice project. I agree, those Camaro inspired lights aren't working on the Vette. 4 rounds are traditional and definitely the way to go. Even the 2012 Vette tails are good. I think the F-40's rear end is so flat and not as sexy as the new Corvette, but that's me.
