what's up fellas thanks for the comments, I've got the chassis painted, rear end and wheelie bars painted, mocked up the engine to get the hood scoop out of the way, here's a few mock up pics.

The Camaro is coming along well Tyrone, I agree and think the front spoiler needs a little more to it,waiting to see how it turns out, the Ross Gibson motor looks awesome, but then all the RGE's look awesome. Keep up the great work!

thanks for the comments fellas, I got some work done on the front end last night, I added a piece of styrene to the bottom of the front end and cut it so that it hung out farther in the front, then I added a piece of tube styrene to the front bumper and the used putty to fill it all in. I've got it all sanded down, it's not as aggresive as the front end in the pic, but I like it here's a few pics.

Hey Tyrone, Everything is coming together awesome (x2). Your car is looking great! I like what you've done to the front rims. The extra bumper work looks great too. Looks like you're headed for the home stretch. Love it!

Progress is looking great Tyrone.

Not to get too far off topic of your build but I was wondering if you were going to make the "Big Drag" show in Greenville/Simpsonville next month? I missed last year but will be back this year.

Thanks for the comments fellas, I started on the plumbing for the enigne, most of the oil lines are done, still need to do the dry sump, and fuel lines. I also started wiring the car and made up most of the electrical components too. Thanks for looking and comments welcome...

Great job with plumbing and detailing the engine. I like to watch these Pro Mod projects, because PM is one of my favorite Drag Race categories. I like the body and the rollcage. Nice job with it, this build is very interesting, I keep watching this one. :lol:

Wow Tyrone!! Everything's coming along quite well. What color is the chassis? Is it gunmetal? Looks a little darker than most and not as metallic, gives it a meaner, stealthy look. I like, I like! I don't know why the chassis color caught my eye so much on this viewing, but it did. I may go with a color similar to that on the Chevelle chassis. Good luck on the remainder of your build.
