  1. hey claude, thanks for this idea I may have to look into that. I thought of using kit tubbs but most seem to be to narrow for this body. defenitly making some probably going to be decaled with carbon fiber. thanks jason
  2. some more on the 61 impala. assembled the rear axle and 4link bars just to fit in the chassis. after the 4 like is in place I'll disassemble and paint. thanks for looking

  10. hi all, going to attempt a tube chassis build on this one. never done anything like this mostly just used a doner kit. I wanted to try a more uncommon car as the 61 is a favorite thought I'd give it a shot. layed out the body on graph paper and made some basic rails and a hoop bar. thanks for looking
