Default 1:8 scale '69 camaro pro mod (mike hill's car)

as most of you have figured out i have some friends at precision chassis in pottstown, pa. they recently completed mike hill's '69 camaro pro mod. i'm going to try to reproduce this car in 1:8 scale as to the best of my abilities. to start with there are no '69 camaro bodies available in 1:8 scale to even try to modify into the cynergy body that is on mike's car. so, i contacted a 3-d artist in brazil and with measuring tape in hand i got the basic dimensions and he proceeded to work up a 3-d drawing of a close proximity to but, not exactly like the cynergy body. next the drawing was sent to a company called TDR. tim at TDR worked the drawing so a 3-d printed body could be made. here are a few of the 3-d renderings from dan palatnik (the 3-d artist)







here is the 3-d printed body.

here are a few more of the body.



one with my hand in there, for a size reference.



a little about the car. the camaro has a 5.20 bore space gene fulton motor in it with a bruno and a lenco 2 speed. front struts and a 4 link rear suspension coupled with a fabricated ford 9" rear. lots of titanium and carbon fiber everywhere.

so, i started by fabricating a ford 9" floater rear in brass.

next i had to machine a set of 4 braswell 2 barrel carbs from aluminum just 'cause they're so cool looking. they're not quite finished yet but i think you'll get a kick out of them.





now we get to the fun part. i started on the fulton power plant. the block is a dart billet piece so that's where i started.

a moroso 2 piece oil pan finishes the bottom end.



please remember almost everything you see here is hand machined by me.
