New Project - NOVACAM!

Recommended Posts

Looks awesome Brian. Love the colour, stance, and wheels. Very nice job on blending the bodies together. 
I’m looking at ordering some Z- wheels, would you recommend him?

Cheers, Steve

Looks awesome the way the two bodies work so well together. That is also a great color and stance for the build. Nice work so far!

Thank you Brian, I appreciate the feedback sir! Looking forward to seeing your build “under glass” beats work.

A couple more of the engine...not plumbed yet nor is the radiator in but needed an idea of how much room was available.  Engine is an LS-3 with Eldebrock cross ram (a la Iceman!!).  I wired the coils.

  • 3D printed LS3 with Edlebrock Cross Ram (Iceman collectibles)
  • Coil pack wired

Thanks guys. Means a lot to me.

There was one other thing I did and that was to epoxy 2 neodymium magnets under the firewall and drilled a shallow duvet in the hood  for 2 other magnets corresponding to the 2 under the firewall.  There was just the right amount of magnetic pull to keep the hood in place.
