If you was tired of seeing "Runt" in build mold here is the next one in line, "Brute Force" The body mods are now starting to be in place as I open up the vents so they can be molded into the body work

Thanks for the kind words. I will have pics of the rim center as it's in ruff stage but will be changed using some cad programs and then in to the 3D Printing when it goes out. A lot of the parts will either be done in the new 3d stuff or changed and then in resin cast for the bigger parts. Plans are for this to having full working hood and trunk.

Some of the body mods are a lot of vents was put into this car. The hood vents and also nose air induction vent and the relocation of the round running lights. The ruff was just a special job that did to change the look of the car when looking at it from the rear. I open up the trunk and will be doing all the inner work on that and brace with brass parts and then painting them. The turn does not open like a normal camaro as it was changed to open more from the top with a thick lip that will be not seen when the spoiler is put on.

Bumper is in the same location, The middle part bumper will be made out of the resin grill using the upper support part of that as it has the same design and angle that is needed to make the two part one that goes across the grill area.

Front air vent for the LS7 motor intake. This is just the same on how they did the real car as it is really wider the what the intake vent looks like., On the Front side vent this is just a outer vent to let out the heat and then the rear vent also I made a part that has a tube that will go to the rear brakes. The top ruff part is just a mod that they did and the molds is just some of the parts that this car will have on in resin from rim ring sizes to the duel fans for the radiator to the oil coolers

Putty the running boards in smooth and also got the marker lights taken out and smooth to the fenders front and rear. Both sides are now smooth fitted and also have the vents put in place. The rear section has been cut out and then filled in also.

The body mods look great. I like the use of the tape to make your reference points easier to locate. I will borrow that one for sure. I'm looking forward to your updates.

Thank you for the kind words. After every thing goes in if it is right then here is how it ends up. I was also able to get the vents with in +/- .005 from any part of where you take a measuerment at. Front the fender body line down to the dooer jam in or to the outer edge of the fender in. Also the vents are with in +/- .003 at any one point from each other in size or angle.

I'm not sure if you realize this, but the body you started with is an RS, the real car shown in the photos is a Standard. So the nose (around the grille) on your model is much too long. (Notice the line that denotes the Endura (RS only) nose extension.)

You'll also have to widen the lower valance a bit if you want those proportions to be correct since the Standard version uses the parking lights that are under the bumpers. The RS front valance has no provisions for those lights and is a different shape.

Very good eye Mark! But here is the catch, They did start with an RS and shorten the nose a little but also made it bigger. They move the lights from the top to the bottom under the bumper and narrow the bumper up by 1/2 of what the real one was to make this look right. The valance was also remade to fit the new mods on the car. Here is a photo of the car after this was done on all the work from the nose.

No, it started as a Standard as shown in your photo. Reworked, yes, but not an RS. The sub-structure of an RS header panel is different since it is made to accept an Endura bumper/nose. That is a standard nose and valance being reworked in that photo. (Plus I researched the real car.)
