Super Cheyene Pro street.. updates 09/25/2014

What's up fellas... this is an older build that got put on the back burner but after looking around in here the past few days I've gotten the spark to go ahead and finish it... I took the amt longbed kit and shortened the bed.. A fellow member on here pointed out to me that I should have shortened the bed behind the rear wheel wells too.... I'll remember that for my next project.... the chassis and engine and drivetrain are from the r/m 67 Chevelle pro street kit... I got the M/T rear tires from the pro street dually snap kit.... here's a few pics to get you all up to speed...

I was playing around with the ideas of these wheels at one time...

This was where I got the idea from...

These wheels are from the dually pro street kit as well... I trimed the pieces out that were between the spokes... I think they look a lot better know...

015-2.jpg Next I moved on to the interior... the window and door handles are from the parts box, the shifter is from the 67 Chevelle kit... I used wood colored paint, with tamiya clear orange painted over it for the wood trim, and added flocking to the floor... 018-2.jpg016-2.jpg024-1.jpg023-1.jpg this is where the project kinda stalled..... there will be more updates to follow... thanks for looking and comments welcome...

Thanks fellas.. I really appreciate it... Randy....Derick right.. it's the AMT prostreet dually....I've lucked up and snagged a few off ebay for 18-20 bucks...

Riley... I build alot of drag cars... pro mods are my favorites... And I was playing around with this to take a break from those builds.. and it just got put to the side... but I'm about to get this one wrapped up...

You cant go wrong with a C10 ,they look good in just about any style. I think one of those 802 cu. in. Sonnys pump gas(1350 HP on 91 octane!) motors would be just right for this. Those trucks tend to be a little heavy LOL. Good job! BILL

I remember this! Doesn't look like you have a whole lot of work left to do to it Tyrone. I really like the color combo you put on it. I've always wanted to paint one of these in either that Butterscotch color on the real truck you posted or that medium blue that they came with from the factory. Those wheels do look better with the ring trimmed out. I can't wait to see the final result!

Alright fellas... I've pulled this one back out to go ahead and get wrapped up.... I decided to go with a dominator carb.. I sanded the engine bay and repainted it flat black.. I also added the brake master cylinder, washer jug and added some battery cables.. I'm also going to add a msd electronics box under hood somewhere.. here's a few pics... thanks for looking and comments welcome...

hood area before...

I like the proportions better than a "real" short bed C-10. How much did you shorten it?
