Jim,  I noticed you also added the molding around the rear window.  Nice job!

Hi Michael, That would be the window seating, I'll be making the molding next. Still a ways to go on this project with a lot of stuff.

What tires will you be using?  The kit's tires are large NASCAR tires.

I been looking at the kit tires, I might take them and redo them and correct them. I also have another kit here that has smaller tires in it and yet they are also from a 1/16 kit too.

What kit are the other tires from?  Is it an MPC 1/16 Firebird?

What's the diameter of the other kit's tires?

I bought a 1/16 1987 Firebird GT kit way back earlier this year. As for the diameter of the tires, I will have to measure them and post a photo on here for us to see.

The Firebird GTA tires will be wrong since they are for 16" wheels. Your best bet would be to find a set of tires from any of the 1/16 2nd Gen Firebirds since they will be for 15" wheels and should be close to what they would have used for the DOH car.

The Firebird tires might work if I modify them. As far as what they used on the DOH car's, I loose to own an original one and on the tv cars they ran two kind of rims for different stunts and handling.
