    I ended up grabbing a kit from goodwill
    amt 2009 corvette coupe, I was hoping to get a motor out of it
    stupid curbside, not even a hole to put an engine
    so I'm thinking I might use the hood just to give this car some extra character



    the pegs started to get on my nerves, ripped them off to get a better idea of what it may look like





    Now I'm trying to figure out if I want to give myself more work and cut up the old hood
    or should I just mold it in

    Any suggestions, comments, criticisms, anything at all very welcome

    So about the time I got to the end of the headers the Blazers decided to lose
    I cut out 1 door and the trunk lol





    I found great humor in throwing the old engine into the trunk just for the sake of a picture


    I wanted to start on a fender design to keep things moving

    Ok, used some left over stress from the past few blazer games
    so I got some progress and pictures,
    tried my hand at fitting in some headers,









    I thinking I might try to mold the headers together or just re-do them
    I didn't get them perfectly how I wanted but this is the first time I've got this deep into a build
    my skills patience and creativity are not very balanced out very well

    Just pulled car out of brake fluid, I think it may need another go.
    In the mean time I'm thinking about maybe hood vents or possible scoop
    Just not too sure on the style
    Any comments, Ideas, suggestions welcome

    There's a half cage and racing seats that comes with the kit
    but no seat belts, light bulb goes on, time to make a 5 point harness







    Right now my chasis and interior are both taking a brake fluid bath so I can clean up all the paint
    I'll keep taking pictures as I go

    I just picked up some styrene and 2part expoxy putty
    will be working on it like crazy tonight and 2moro
    But bear with me I'm still a rookie and my Trail Blazers are playing tonight
    so no promise on a post later tonight, but work will get done
    Test fit






    Flares to be added
    still need to build roof spoiler
    alot to go
    An idea of my vision still not sure on color

    First try at stripping/ scratching off the paint

    had a few too many coats of paint, and a perfect amount of clear coat

    Second attempt at stripping, got impatient, was only told to use brake fluid not how,
    so it was just brushed on and left for about 9 hours



    Finally got fed up and went for the oven cleaner



    Discoverd a nice piece of age from glue, (body cracking)
    tail light and trunk area where the wing was
    exactly where there was glue
    I'm sure the oven cleaner didn't help at all



    finally used some elbow grease and got the rest of the paint
    Time for primer

    so theres all my tunnel fixing and firewall pics

    obviolusly the stock driveline wasn't going to work too well,
    thank God I purchased a big box of parts, found one that worked
    but I wanted to keep the some of the original rear mounting points
    shaved down some of the chasis, cut the axel to correct width, made a few slits to accept the new rear
