bobby, thanks! glad you like my work. if you love this stuff, all i can say is "jump in the water's fine". there's no magic potion i can recommend other than experience... and you only get it by "doin' it". so take a leap of faith and get crackin'!! LOL!

How do you mimic the welding on the "sheet metal" valve covers?

a company named archer makes resin printed water slide decals. you simply cut the strips to size and apply them. let them dry and paint over them.

so,.......finally, i've gotten some time to work on the camaro again.

been working on the chassis plans and things that go along with that stuff. i got far enough to make the mid plate.



here it is between the motor and bell housing.



also, i got a chance to make some front wheels. i wish i could have made the v-serie front wheels mike runs on the car but, with out cnc equipment, that's pretty much out of the question. so, i opted for weld alumastars for the front and back. hopefully i will be able to get these anodized black in the not so distant future.



front wheel on the strut.



hope you enjoy!

thanks dave. i will continue to post as i build.

got some time to draw the rear wheel centers. so, i machined this one. have to do the other tomorrow.





added some black sharpie to see what they'd look like



hope you enjoy!

i just wanted to add.....in case you haven't read the whole thread, these parts are not done on a cnc. these are done on a hand operated mill.
