I take it that there is little interest in this idea so if no one wants to do this I will have it removed from here after next sunday.

I would leave it. Sometimes these are long term builds and could take a while for folks to post updates.

Most of my progress lately has been fidling around getting the engine in the right spot, & working on suspension geotrmy.

I have made a bit of progress with the interior, the seats needed sanding down to fit & had to curve the inside edge to allow enough room for the roll bar. Ive got the dash trimmed out & have started mocking up the centre consol.

Also gonna give the hidden lights a try, Ive got a spare grill from when I first ordered the set, I ended up snapping the piece in half trying to bend it to fit better, so I'll glue it back together & cut the ends out.

Made a little progress with the Centre consol in Bumblebee, I ended up destroying the radio that was molded in the Camaro dash, so I'm gonna use one from an old NSX / 300zx. the rest will be an ipad display.

Funnily enough I put the movie on over the weekend, watched all the scenes with bumbleebee as the 67 camaro, which ends up being very little, the movie car didnt have the yellow rollcage, the dash doesnt look like the movie cars dash. So theres a pit of creative licence that i can take....

Chassis is ready for paint, I've filled all unnecessary holes & made mounts for the engine. Next up is the rollcage

Well, I can throw my Bumblebee in as well. It is ongoing, but stalled for the summer it seems. Mine is the same as da_ashman, but his is a lot closer to being done than mine.

Hey Before you paint it black, BumbleBee had most of his panel gaps filled in, like the one on the nose.

From what I found, the only panel gap that was left seperate was the one infront of the windscreen.

Made a bit of colour progress over the weekend, Im using different finishes of black, so its not all matt black on matt black...

I also wanted to throw some more yellow in so painted the engine block yellow, I kinda like it, its a bit different. I needed to get the headers painted & attached to the engine with the engine seated before I can finish the rest of the exhaust system, so theyve been painted with Model Master Stainless Steel buffing (a product Ive fallen in love with!!) 

Most of the interior has been painted either Matt or satin black Plasticoat, might tone down the seats a bit yet. Tonight's task is to make the rollbar & complete the dash.

Hey Guys, Ive made some progress over the last week & redone some progress Id previously made too.

First, I made up the Tigercage Roll bar system, Got the engine glued in, modified interior to suit the gearbox & modified the 67 kits exhaust to suit.

Then I wasnt happy with how close the engine was to the front, so i removed it & moved it backwards by 6mm which looks heaps better. But now I have to re-modifiy the interior & exhaust...

Hey Mate, Cheers!

For the cage I just used 2mm styrene rod & bent it over a flame from a candle.
