I hadn't planned on doing a WIP on this one but I liked the way this looks when I mocked it up this morning. Working on the custom frame to try to get it this low.

I'm hoping to get much more progress done this weekend.

Tom, you can post your photos directly from your hard drive to this board.

Just pull up a picture on your screen.  Right click ---  COPY   then come to this board in the frame you type messages in and Right click -- PASTE.   Your photo should appear.  Then if you  double click on your photo, it gives you the opportunity to resize it.

Thank you Tom. I knew there was a way but couldn't remember and knew that if I mentioned to someone would comment. Thanks again.

Very nice, like the mean look, mods and color goes great with it!  I use my phone for my pictures but put my pics on a laptop in a folder then just upload them from folder.  If the pics are too big to upload then I have to run them through photoshop and resize them.

Thanks guys.

Still haven't figured out how to upload the pics straight from my phone without PB.

Been making a bit of progress on this this week. Using the engine from the 2010 Camaro SS with a resin Magnuson supercharger from Curt Raitz (thanks Curt).

Scratchbuilt the suspension for that low ride.

This definitely won't be my highest quality build but it should look fine on the shelf.

Comments and criticisms welcomed.

Still working on detailing the engine. Took some time to make sure everything fits. Had to recess the radiator to make room for the air intake. Also had to modify the air intake a bit.

Thanks TJ. It's finally coming along. Just need to finish detailing the engine and scratchbuild the exhaust. I found a set of mirrors for it. Custom for the build but close enough to stock to not look out of place or like an afterthought.

Thanks Pappy. I realized this morning that I never took any photos of the interior before installing it in the cab. It has the seats, center console and steering wheel and column from the Viper GTS.

Thanks guys. This one, in a way, is coming out as I pictured it but in a way it's not. I had envisioned it in silver and graphite but with some gloss blue accents. I couldn't come up with the blue I wanted so it got left out. Still trying to decide on putting a floating chrome bar on the grille or not.

I've been working on the chassis lately and still have the exhaust to fab-up. Then it is just putting the body on the chassis and it's done.

Getting the last little bit done on this build. Dabbing up the exhaust system. Mufflers from the parts box (70 Superbee) and Evergreen rod. I'll let this dry till lunch and then paint it up. Installing this and the mirrors are the final steps.
