What's up fellas.... this is one I started on yesterday.. this one will have a vinyl top.. I used the pro sportsman chassis as a start, but will be only using a few pieces from it . There were a few modifications that had to be done first though... I had to move the lower strut arms back to center them up in the wheel wells.. here's a few pics.. thanks for looking and comments welcome...

these pics show the changes made after re-locating the lower arms, and removing the raised beads from the rear wheel tubs, and floor board. I also cut the front firewall down so that it is not as tall, I also removed the molded in dzus fasteners, and brakes lines and cables that were molded in the chassis, these will be replaced with lines and cables later..

next up I modified the front frame rails I filled in the holes with .035 styrene rod and filled down the mount tabs for the front struts and made my own I used the strut mount gussets from Scott...

Awesome. Can't wait for this to get built up.. a dark green metallic would look really cool with white stripes. Maybe it could look like a Yenko Camaro...

What you've done so far is looking super, Tyrone. I like the idea of cleaning up the separate frame rail and detailing it on your own instead of using the cast-in-place components. Can't wait for your next update!

:lol: LOL!!! :lol:

I remember seeing a light, metallic blue '69 Camaro with an ugly green vinyl top- please, tell me you're not gonna do that!

Seriously, that's coming along really nice, as usual. Looking forward to more.

Rick.. that's a good one... cracked me up... thanks for looking in buddy..

Alright fellas.... thanks for all the nice comments and for checking in.. I REALLY appreciate it...

Well I got some time in at the bench yesterday and I made a rear wing from sheet styrene.. I also went ahead and got the wheelie bars done.. and I have started on the cage area also.. I ended up using the pieces from the kit cage that run along both side of the trans tunnel.. everything else will be scratch built from .062 styrene rod, and and few other smaller pieces of rod for bracing and stuff... I like to make the main loop in the cage first and then build from there.. I've got most of the rear section done, and I've added the bars for the funny car cage area.. next I'll make the trunk floor and finish up the trunk area... thanks for looking and comments welcome...
