      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    I didn't do a rear seat delete but I cut out the molded-in seat on a '56 T-bird, and you are correct that it is a challenge.
    One thing to make sure of is that you account for all of the chassis contours. I had to cut an entire section out and then create a new one using sheet styrene.
    If you have any parts box interiors without a rear seat I suggest seeing if the rear section can be used.
    I also did a quick search on roll bars for your car and I see that a lot of them don't have straight bars but curve around the seat.
    Well, good luck. Btw, what engine are you planning on running?

    Nice chassis choice Bill but it looks a little short. Check it out with some wheels on it.

    Well, after grinding the wheel wells and then mocking things up I realized that this build isn't going to happen. The vacuformed windshield would not fit with the dash installed.
    I don't see how this body would ever fit on a styrene kit unless everything was custom built to fit.
    So I'm changing my entry to the 2006 Camaro Concept. I bought it years ago when I first got back into models and lots of parts are missing including the engine. It will be wide-body as well, but I'm not sure if I'll still go with the V-12, as the XLR front end was longer and I felt it could accommodate the longer engine. I could use the Corvette engine since I'll be using a lot of those parts that would have gone on the XLR.
    Oh well. That's why I got started early to see if the XLR could be built. I think its going to be in the next 4th of July firecracker demonstration that the local kids give. They'll get a kick out of seeing it blow to pieces.
    Here's my new kit.

    My wife just handed me a chain today! I looked at it and it was the perfect size, with nice links. She earned a big kiss! By all means, check with your partner/spouse!
