    • Site Upgrade   11/18/2017

      The Forums will be down, Friday, November 24th starting 8 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online.  Update: I've had a medical issue come up, and this window might not get used. If it doesn't, I'll push the maintenance back to Saturday, 2 December.

     Thanks for all your feedback it’s much appreciated and helps me grow and progress my build further. If you have any suggestions or critiques I’d love to hear them.
    Stockboresme I agree with you. I’ve been looking at it for awhile and trying to figure out a way to soften the front side profile. I’ll definitely give the stock bumper a try and see if that helps. Any other ideas to help with this would be helpful.

    Hi everyone I finally got to do some work on this project. Sorry for the slow progress. I updated the custom wheels thanks to Rico for all your help. I have a lot of reworking to do but it will be  worth it.
    Here’s some more pics to hold you guys over.

    Unfortunately not yet I'm trying to prepare for me and my wife's baby who's do anytime now. I've gotten parts in some worked some didn't so back to the drawing board. Haha. I'll be starting soon just gotta order another NASCAR chassis and engine parts. Then should be ready to start again. I might try massaging the rear flares back and rework then this week if I have some free time. 
    The front end is from c1 it's actually for a chevelle. It had the basic shape I was dreaming up in my head so I tweaked it to work for the Cuda'.
     
    If anyone knows someone that could do some 3D printing or cut me some styrene. I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks again.

    Slowly getting stuff together. 1 thing I really need that I can't get nor find in the right size is the wheels. I saw in another post that the eightyone81 d hole wheels were the perfect shape got them in  BUT they are too SMALL!! Is there some out there I'm missing or I'd be willing to pay if anyone knows of someone that could 3D print or cut me some out of styrene? I'm really only needing the spoke area if that would make it easier. Any help on this would be great.

    Thanks a lot impalow and drkerry this is helping out a ton. Sorry for the late response. I posted in the middle of moving into my new house. I finally got some parts in and going to start again on this soon!!

    Thanks drkerry I understand what you mean. They are set that way just for the pics (don't sit inside the flare the way they need to by themselves) I still have more I need to "shave" on the inside for more space in the rear. But what I was kinda wondering " might take some time and patience but moving the flares up higher and grafting them back in. I personally think after leaving it for a week, seeing some project cars I like and looking at it again might look a bit more aggressive? Any thoughts on this?
  8. Mopar426 added a post in a topic Road Race/Pro Touring Cuda - Project "HELL BOY”   

    Need some feed back on the flares. Should I get more aggressive with them? Also wondering what you think so far. Gladly would like some creative criticism or thoughts on body mods that should/could be done.
    thanks again

    The rendering is by Andreas Wennevold. Check him out he's got some amazing stuff. The hood is from Lex's Scale Modeling. I'm happy with the hood looks really nice and fits pretty well.

    Thanks again! Finished the flares. Hope you all like them.

    Parts came in today. Here's a quick mockup before I start finishing bodywork tomorrow. I think I like the flare placement but not 100% sure. 


  13. Mopar426 added a post in a topic Road Race/Pro Touring Cuda - Project "HELL BOY”   

    Thanks for all the advice!! I'm hoping to make some progress this week as long as parts come in. 
  14. Mopar426 added a post in a topic Road Race/Pro Touring Cuda - Project "HELL BOY”   

    Yes I think this will help me out a lot. Im hoping to make some progress next week as long as parts come in. And thanks again for the advice I really appreciate and could use anythng you guys suggest.

    Thanks everyone. Definitely going to be red not going with 100% of the rendering but it gives you the idea. Got to figure out what chassis I'm going to use. Thinking NASCAR or c5r not sure.
    Actually Resto I saw your build the other day and that's why I made an account to post my build. I really like what your doing with the mustang. How did you get your fenders flared so much and all the same?
