Rickie Smith Stroh's Light Firebird Pro Stock UPDATE 9/28


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

One of my many project ls in progress. This will be Rickie Smith's Firebird circa 1989 I believe. As most of yiu know the stance on these kits are horrendous. I cut the tubs and the rear tires to get a better ride height. I will have to adjust the rear suspension to make this work. 

It will be a semi detailed build. Engine detail some interior detail

Here's a small update. Got some paint work done. The engine is a wash due to getting the "correct" Pontiac power plant for the build. The headers will be staying though. I purchased a Super Stock magazine on eBay for reference. I'm going to attempt to get it as close to the pics as I can. Finding good reference for pro stock builds seems to be a chore

Looking good! What all do you do to get the lower stance on these cars? Are front spindles modified? Also, where did you get the decals from?

Cut the tires and tubs. Decals are custom made

Got the body cleared and set it in the sun to help speed up the current progress. Got my work cut out fo me as I gotta get some elbow grease involved. Needs some serious polishing done. Hope I can get it to look like the hood
