69 Camaro

Post by DeeCee on Sun 29 Jan 2017, 2:20 pm

I got one of these at a great price, so i thought why not!!  The only problem is NO SPARE PARTS..


I started  by doing something with the wheels, i cut the lip off the stock wheels and put it onto the front of the Centreline's.


And redid some ofthe chassis, to make way for a diff sitting much closer to the floor.

So far so good. Different scale makes it hard if the plan goes astray!!!

Cheers Tim, yes mate, i usually have a quick look and start cutting, then worry about how i'm going to
get the result i want, BUT, not this time, as they are too expensive  to destroy in one foul swoop of the scalpel and dremel...
So  i have to actually come up with a plan, and have a step by step  idea of what the heck i'm doing...   Rolling Eyes .  

Well, i removed the leaf springs, and made a 4 link for it, and then made some coil over shocks for it too..

Nice work DeeCee. I'm a fan of the Generals products so this appeals to me.
Orange is OK too, can't wait to see your first burnout.

Thanks Allan and Ant, well picked a color for the interior.


And found out the bonnet don't clear the carbs, and i DON'T want a hole in it, so i started cutting the bonnet up.


Filled in the sides


After some sanding, shaping and putty, i like it..
