57 pro touring Corvette

Recommended Posts

Building my first "pro touring"-type model. A 57 Corvette street Machine and a '98 Indy Pace Car is what I'm using. Trying to figure out which way to go with interior. Got the stance and the drivetrain done so far, I'll add a turbo next:

Are you really going to have the engine that high??? Must be a way to lower it, 'cus that isn't good for handling - if it was a real car. The only thing that looks good sticking up through a hood, is a chrome blower.... ;)

Kept the Hood white, to look like the unpainted fiberglass hoods that guys leave on...plan on adding a big cowl to it.

I don't know how to take that "line" running through the fender where the molds meet out, without ruining the finish on the paint.

I am acually using the entire chassis/interior mold from the pace car, I figured it would make the driveline an easier fit. Well the driveline fits good, but I had to "fabricate" (Hack out with dremel) about half of the underbody/frame/interior mold. I want to use the pace car seats but it won't line up with the center peice between the seats, I'll figure it out
